Lagostina Martellata Tri-Ply Copper 6 Qt. Covered Pastaiola Review & Contest Giveaway (Retail Price $249.99)
I love pasta of every description, so when I was contacted by Lagostina to take part in the celebration of National Pasta Day, I was all in. I was sent a gorgeous copper pasta pot from the Martellata line of pots at Lagostina to use in my National Pasta Day recipe and was offered a second pot to use a contest prize for my blog followers (Retail Price $249.99 – See Contest Details Below). When I returned from Umbria earlier this week, the pot was already here waiting for me, and on first inspection it is stunning. Of course, cookware needs to be functional as well as attractive, and I was very pleased with the weight of the pasta pot. The pot itself was quite sturdy, while the insert liner is much lighter in weight which works well when you are draining your pasta. As well as being very attractive to look at while it sits on your stovetop, the hammered copper exterior enhances the conduction of heat, and the pot is also oven safe. I always believe that to cook great Italian food, you need the right tools, and this pasta pot would be the perfect addition to any pasta lover’s kitchen. Of course, this pot can be used for much more than cooking pasta, and it is ideal for making soups of any description as well as for blanching vegetables.
I decided to create a fall pasta dish to try out my new Martellata Pastaiola, and since I just returned from Italy where we spend six months a year in Umbria, I wanted to make an Umbrian inspired dish. I thoroughly enjoyed trying out the pasta pot while making my Farro Pasta With Mushrooms & Sausage In A Creamy Thyme Sauce. I have an electric stovetop here in North America, and it usually takes forever to boil water, but I found that the water came to a boil quicker than usual in my new copper pasta pot. This Lagostina Matellata pot is also wider and a little shorter in height than my regular pasta pot, which makes adding long pasta to the boiling water much easier. I was happy that the pasta insert was quite lightweight which made draining the pasta easy, and I found that cleanup was a breeze.
Lagostina Martellata Tri-Ply Copper 6 qt. Covered Pastaiola Details:
- Brushed 18/10 stainless steel interior will not react with food.

Buon Giorno Deborah,
This pot looks amazing! Hmmmm, what type of pasta would I prep if I had this wonderful pot?? Well, being that I am cooking more Gluten Free these days I would prepare a GF pasta, preferably something like spaghetti or fettucine with my “go to” Italian Tuna Sauce; you can make this tasty sauce in a pinch with canned Italian tuna in olive oil which is a staple in most Italian pantries, olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper, capers, white wine and a few other items and you’ve got a wonderful dish to serve alongside a nice escarole salad with lemon and olive oil and bread, be it GF or regular whole grain. Here’s hoping…!!
On day #1, I would make Farro Pasta With In A Creamy Thyme Sauce With Mushrooms & Sausage that is listed on your site. I would make it even without the wonderful Lagostina Martellata Tri-Ply Copper Covered Pastaiola. I know that it will be much better if prepared in the Pastaiola. After the first day, I would plan on every pasta from Agnolotti to Ziti!
This is so much fun! I would love to own this pot! Thank you for this contest. I would make penne with tomato basil sauce which is a new garden favorite recipe, following pesto sauce with pecorino romano. Ciao!
My grandfather came from Campobasso, Italy when he was just 9 yrs old, but still remembered the wonderful flavors and ingredients of the pasta sauce he was introduced as a boy, and taught my mother (his daughter) who then taught my dad how to make this delicious Sunday sauce – similar to Sunday Gravy. It has been passed down to my generation, and of the 14 children in our family, I am considered the one who makes the most closely resembeled version of this recipe. With that being said, this is the first thing I would make if I won this pot! A family tradition pasta sauce with home made pasta (from my son-in-law)! What could be better! come on by- there’s always room for one more at our pasta table!!
I would make good old spgghetti and meatballs. Love it

Linguine with clams
I love this pot! I have a weakness for anything related to cooking: pots, pans, utensils, spices, cookbooks, new recipes. I do not have any copper pots so this would be a wonderful addition to my collection!
At first I thought that Linguine with clam sauce would be my choice, since it is a favorite of my husband’s and I have a new gluten free linguine to test out. (I am gluten free, husband is not. If I can sneak it past him, the pasta is a keeper!)
But then I saw your new recipe with the sausage and mushrooms and thyme. I definitely would try that in the new pot. If I haven’t already made it!
Yum Woon Sen. It’s a Thai noodle salad
Shrimp Pasta Primavera! And then ALL the pastas after that! Just lovely!

My spaghetti with ShaShata sauce is soooo delicious. Olive oil and butter sauce with green, red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, garlic, and a can of asparagus with the juice, salt to taste, is all you need to make this ever so delicious, finger-licking, mouth watering pasta your whole family will love. The spaghetti, al dente and drained, is poured over the mixture and mixed with the vegetables. Bread and wine is all you need to round out this wonderful recipe.

My grandparents are from Nocera and Spello in Umbria. I would make my grandmother’s outstanding tomato sauce with Angel hair pasta in this beautiful pot, serve it with her pork, lemon and cinnamon meatballs and invite you to share it with us. Love that you live in Umbria half of the year and, of course, I love your excellent recipes from the region.
How could it be Sunday without mama’s Sunday Gravy? Loaded with luscious tender meatballs, sausage, pork neck bones, braciole, the tomatoes used would be home canned and a different hand-made pasta each week, sometimes ravioli or tortellini, generally pasta alla chitarre (followed, of course, with a great roast with potatoes and gorgeous bitter green salas). All the aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, young and old, would gather in mama’s great basement kitchen. She is long gone but the tradition continues in my farm house kitchen, especially during wine-making and home-canning season (just about now). But all year long I will never let Sunday go by without Sunday Gravy. There is a dispute between me, coming from NYC, and a friend in New Jersey, who refuses the word ‘gravy’, says it is sauce and only sauce. I say sauce any other time, but on Sundays it’s gravy. I want this great pot, I NEED this great pot, I will dream about it until the results are in. Grateful am I for such a chance to contest to win. It would be the best 80th year birthday present I could ever receive. Thank you.
I would make chicken Riggies..yum
What a beautiful pot. I love that it’s a wider width. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I’d make a creamy white sauce with linguine, peas and smoked hm.

I would make a bolognese sauce with boneless short ribs which I trim and hand grind. I also use finely chopped carrots, onions, celery and garlic as a base. I add 1/2 a stick of butter to the tomato sauce toward the end and a dash of sugar. Always over fresh linguine.
I have been an admirer of Langostina pots & pans for many years. They are truly a work of art to passed down from generation. To generation. I would make our family & friend favorite, Pasta Amatriciana. I even taught my Irish husband how to make it❣
Thanks for this great offer.

I would learn to make a really good pasta Carbonara from scratch.
Rigatoni with my husband’s homemade garden tomato sauce!
Something as elegant deserves use! But today I feel like simple homemade pasta and a light cream base with wild mushroom sauce. I live in the woods and often at this time of year I find abundances of fall oyster mushroom and wild chives. I’d add a touch of lemon peel and a dry white wine. Then top it off with greens sautéed with garlic , rosemary asiago cheese. yummmmm!
I will make my mother’s meat sauce and serve with spaghetti. Yum!!

First, this gorgeous pot would be a stunning addition to my kitchen. Second, I would attempt to recreate the ravioli my Nonna DeBona and I would make for special occasions. She was the best cook and grandma, putting such love into her family and the dishes she made. It would be like sharing this with her all over again, only this time with my daughter. And as I cook with my daughter and pass the love and recipes on to her, she would also inherit the lovely pot I hope you chose to give to me~

Since the weather in the Northeast has (finally) become fall like, it makes me think confort food. Nothing is more comforting than a BIG bowl of parpardelle with lamb ragu. That would be the first meal I would cook in that magnificent pot.

Love this pot to cook my Homemade Pappardelle with my Nonna’s Bolognese Sauce recipe. What can better than that. Nothing is better than Italian Cruisine. The idea of having this beautiful cooking vessel in my Cucina would be amazing.

Love the look of this pot.

With such a beautiful pot I’d make several pasta dishes for my pasta loving family. Our favorite is Rigatoni Bolognese. However, this pot will get to help me prepare penne a la vodka, spaghetti and meatballs, and lasagna. All of these will be made wish fresh sauces, of course.
So many wonderful pasta dishes to choose from in this versatile pot! My first go to comfort dish would be Pasta (bucatini) Aglio e Olio with shrimp. That first bite with the sauce that seeps out makes you want to close your eyes and have a moment. This pot would certainly be a step up from the Dutch Oven. Thank you for the opportunity.
I would make your delicious ricotta gnocchi. It would be nice to get them all out of the water at once, and this pot would work perfectly. Thanks!
