Italian Food in Mendoza

Fresh pastas can be found not only in grocery stores but there are also shops that sell all kinds of varieties of ravioli, fetuccini, and ñoqui (gnocchi).  We have sampled some, including a ravioli with ricotta and almonds, and long macaroni (see photos).  It is truly a strange and interesting combination to be buying fresh pasta en español.   It kind of challenges our stereotypes we have in the U.S. about “Latin” food, where we tend to assume that all of it is Mexican.  There is not a corn tortilla to be found anywhere.
