Carb lovers, listen up!
The 25th of October is World Pasta Day, and you best believe we’ll be celebrating with beautiful bowls of cheese-laden pasta.
To kickstart the carb-loading (frankly, it would be rude note to), we’ve rounded up 6 pastas that you need to try ASAP…
1.Cappellacci from OTTO Ristorante
When it comes to pasta, we’re convinced that OTTO can do no wrong! This dish, prepared with delicate ricotta and feta filled pasta, tender Longreach lamb shoulder, roasted onion, rapinia and gremolata, will have you wishing you were vacationing in Italy.
2. Moreton Bay Bug Linguine from Popolo
May we please take a moment for this delicate, seafood linguine from Popolo. Singing with the flavours of the Italian Riviera, this Moreton Bay bug, spanner crab and lobster bisque linguine is a serious vibe.
3. Slow Cooked Beef Ragu from VICI
This pasta feels like a warm hug from your Nonna (we may not have a Nonna but hey, you know what we mean!). Perfectly cooked rigatoni topped with a rich tomato sugo and lashings of parmesan, it can also be made gluten free and dairy free!
4. Creamy Basil Pesto Gnocchi from Gnocchi Gnocchi Bros.
Forget your boring pesto pasta recipe, this creamy basil pesto gnocchi is about to be your new obsession. Prepared with freshly crushed basil pesto, a cheeky dollop of fresh cream and pillowy balls of hand-rolled gnocchi, this pasta never disappoints.
5. Local Seafood Linguine from Embers
If you share our love for a good seafood linguine, you’re going to want to take note. This beautiful pasta, made with king prawns, fresh fish, calamari, chilli, garlic and shellfish emulsion, is a serious crowd pleaser.
6. Vegan Mushroom Risotto from The Jetty
We know risotto isn’t technically a pasta but trust us, this dish from The Jetty is so good it needs a mention! A decadent risotto prepared with truffle, leek, wild mushrooms, and vegan parmesan, it is vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free (perfect for our fellow dietary challenged friends).
