We visited "The Pasta Guy" on our very first stop of our Salem Food Tour. What a delight! We were served butternut squash ravioli with a sage butter sauce. I was formerly a fan of the run of the mill ravioli filling (meat, cheese, mushroom, lobster) but Jean Louis introduced us to so much more! Not only were the ravioli delectable, our Salem Food Tour guide Karen Scalia provided us with Jean Louis' sage butter sauce recipe. Jean Louis is in the shop, making pasta within view while you shop. His pasta is a work of art and he has many, many different varieties of ravioli and other pasta to choose from. Some of the ravioli filings included: black bean/monterray jack cheese, goat cheese/mushroom, and of course lobster, cheese, squash and several other unique blends. We bought pasta that day and Jean Louis held our packages for us until the next day so we wouldn't have to carry them around on the tour. He invited us to come back Sunday morning as he has samples set out for shoppers to try. When we arrived, he interrupted his pasta making to tell us about the food and make suggestions on what pairs well with what. Great experience!
