Mario and Giada Xmas Special . . .

I only wish I was kidding!
They start in Boston, making ornate ravioli with colored pasta dough, shaped like wreaths and snowmen . . . they (okay, just Giada) end at the grocery store, buying JARS OF SAUCE for the special Christmas ziti al forno at Giada's house.

Semi-stilted somewhat trite voiceover from M. Batali, he and his toothy friend cover both coasts for Ital-Am specialties. The Tucci family does the Seven Fishes, a highlight of the show. They hit the right highpoints, but . . . ack, it just doesn't fly. All the depth that Batali brings to the Molto Mario shows is just blan'd out for a very typical FN night out. Bleck.
