    I have a cookbook with recipes for fresh flavoured pastas like spinach, beetroot, saffron etc. But it doesn't say which sauces to go with it!

    I like making fresh pasta with my Marcato 150 and am ready to experiment with different flavours in the dough, but I need a suitable sauce.

    I don't find it has that much distinct flavor. To me it's more about playing up the visual of the pasta. The shape of the pasta also impacts which sauces you would choose. Coarser chunkier shapes do better with coarser chunkier pasta. Finer pasta need thinner smoother sauces.
