And what could be more soothing than a nice bowl of
Giant Baked Shells, in three-cheese béchamel!
I mean really folks, of all the absolutely incomprehensible things that are happening in the world today, the size of these shells are one of them, they’re huge…. they’re probably the best shells you’ve ever seen…. believe me.
In addition to copious amounts of beer and wine we have today, we will also have
Pasta Mista, alla Amatriciana
Pappardelle, alla Bolognese.
A burst of color on this otherwise gray day.
Torchietti, with yellow-foot chanterelle mushroom sauce!
that’s some goodness right there!
And, Spaghettini, with anchovy, garlic, olive oil, chilies, treviso and toasted focaccia crumbs!
Rolled ribbons of pasta, soaking up all that rich, unctuous liquid form the overnight-braised lamb skanks…..
or, a bright dish old Brussels Sprouts, preserved lemon, and pesto embracing toothsome Casarecce!
its a tough day for decisions….
Gigli, with Celaric root creme!
You’re getting healthy just looking at this dish!
Lasagne di Verdure, layers of pasta, leeks, broccoli, bechamel, tomato and Parmesan
Pappardelle, alla Bolognese
We’re not just a wine-only drinking joint anymore.
Tagliarini, with classic butter and sage!
And Pasta Mista, with leeks and potato!
Up in Liguria, they’re not afraid of some hot “carb-on-carb” action….
We made a little twist on the traditional, with a pesto of broccolini
I hope the Italians would approve.
Cresti Di Gallo, With Cauliflower, garlic, anchovies, capers and bread crumbs
Pappardelle, Allan Bolognese
