No kidding. On September 17th, many of us around the country set out to prove that good food does not have to be expensive food, like Kristin Cole, my good friend in Chicago. Promising a pasta dinner for 8 without spending more than $40, she came in at an impressive $38 and it was delicious! Now, look what’s happening with the Slow Food $5.00 Pasta Challenge. There’s a huge movement started and we are proud to be part of it!
-Grilled eggplant rounds with tomato, mint and parmiggiano bruschetta ($10)
-Al Dente® Whole Wheat and Spinach Fettuccine with spicy sausage, wild bitter greens and ricotta ($20)
-Vanilla ice cream with cinnamon roasted figs, balsamic and sea salt ($8)
My new friends take home pasta, and Kasey of Culinary Creations promises to send me her recipes to share.
