If you’re looking for a menu filled with tons of fresh pasta, Salvatore’s Fresh Ristorante Italiano (1932 W. Retail Lane, Ozark,417-485-3838, salvatoresfresh.com) is the place to be. Pasta pros here make fresh noodles daily, offering everything from rigatoni and ravioli to piles of spaghetti. If you’re not up for a night out, check out owner Jerry (Salvatore) DeMoro’s Pasta Carbonara for Two recipe on p. 64. Don’t have a pasta machine? Have no fear, he says—many Italians use rolling pins to get noodles to their desired thickness.
