It's a battle to the finish line when the Top 10 are tasked with a pasta race. The home cooks are divided into teams and compete to roll out the longest sheet of pasta as fast as they possibly can. The first team's pasta sheet to make it to the winner's circle will be safe and exempt from a high-stakes elimination test in which éclairs are the dish du jour. No detail will go unnoticed.
