This may be an impossible request, but I hope if anyone knows the answer it would be Chowhound regulars.
I am a New Yorker in Paris for a semester abroad and loving it, and I'm a huge fan of French food and everything, but I have been here for two and a half months now and I am desperately craving a great plate of pasta. My family cooks Italian food at home and I have been to Italy many times (psyched for a trip to Florence with friends after my program ends in December), and if I had easy access to a kitchen I would buy some good fresh pasta, a little parmigiano reggiano and a can of san marzano cherry tomatoes and satisfy my craving all on my own (and on a once-a-week basis...) but as it stands I don't have that kitchen availability. So my question is, is there anywhere I can get a really good bowl of Italian pasta on a student's budget in Paris? I am of course willing to splurge a little on food that will remind me of home, but 30 euros for a satisfying meal is probably all I can do as a poor college student.
A good sweet tomato sauce, broccoli rabe, carciofi, wild mushrooms, maybe risotto... can I find any of this in Paris without paying an arm and a leg?
