I participated in this Blog Blast on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Prince Pasta. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I grew up North of Boston, and, one thing was for sure, Wednesday was Prince Spaghetti Day! My mom had her own special secret tomato sauce which simmered all day in a huge pot, and she’d make extra to give to friends who always asked for more. I grew up with Prince Spaghetti and we keep up the Wednesday tradition as my family still loves the authentic Italian flavor.
Prince Pasta was born in 1912 on Prince Street in Boston’s North End. I’ve always loved exploring this neighborhood filled with scintillating smells and an Old World charm. You’ll find bustling streets, farmer’s markets, festivals and feasts. The smell of fresh bread baking tickles your nose as you make your way down the winding streets, and the cannoli is out of this world.
In celebration of National Pasta Month this October, Boston-born Prince Pasta, has partnered with Christine and Carla Pallotta, chefs and owners of local Italian eatery, NEBO, to develop creative and easy-to-make recipes using Prince Pasta. (I highly recommend NEBO for Prosciutto di Parma, Pappardelle and a delicious Fettuccine al Nero that melts in your mouth. Delicioso!)
Each Wednesday throughout October, Prince Pasta will reveal one of the Pallotta sisters recipes, showing how to make a simple and delicious meal with Prince Pasta. The recipes include Christine’s Breakfast Pasta, Cavatappi Funghi, Pasta al Forno and Pasta Piselli. These dishes look mouthwatering and I never knew the recipes could be so easy to follow.
Christine’s Breakfast Pasta
This recipe with its delicious Mediterranean flavors is one of Chef Christine Pallota’s favorites. Since I’m a big believer in pasta at any time of day, I’ll be making this dish this weekend!
