Whoever coined the saying ‘summer bodies are made in winter’, CLEARLY didn’t share our love for pasta...
Our go-to dish when the temperature begins to drop (please, no comments on Brisbane’s ‘moderate’ winter temps), we’ve rounded up the six pasta dishes you need to try this season! Because seriously, who doesn’t want to get their carb on right now?
1. Spaghettini from OTTO Ristorante
Hands down, this has to be one of the best pastas in Brisbane! Think long thin, handmade spaghetti with Champagne lobster, garlic, chilli, white wine, lemon butter and bottarga... it’s *chef’s kiss* to die for!
2. Braised Duck Pappardelle from Popolo
Nothing screams winter more than a warming bowl of duck pappardelle from Popolo! Prepared with thick ribbons of handmade pasta, succulent braised duck leg ragu and grana padano, this dish really hits the spot...
3. Carbonara from VICI
Satisfy those cravings with a bowl of VICI’s delicious carbonara. Creamy, carby and made with love, expect crispy pork guanciale, fresh spaghetti, mascarpone cream sauce and a healthy sprinkling of pecorino.
4. Chilli Prawn Linguine from River Quay Fish
Our two favourite things have come together in one beautiful dish... fresh Queensland prawns and pasta! Paired with fresh chilli, garlic, heirloom tomatoes, baby spinach and a house-made tomato sauce, this prawn linguine is forever a favourite.
5. Wild Mushroom & Truffle Gnocchi from Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers
Warning... This dish is seriously addictive! Made with fresh pillowy gnocchi, local mushrooms, a thick cream sauce and a generous drizzle of high-quality Italian truffle oil (VIBE), this gnocchi makes for the perfect, casual date-night feast.
6. Jerusalem Artichoke Agnolotti from Southbeach
Rejoice, lovers of veg! Southbeach have the most amazing vegetarian pasta on their menu. We’re talking handmade pasta filled with Jerusalem artichoke, sauteed wild mushrooms, chard, parmesan and truffle oil...
