Enjoy World Pasta Month with Buca di Beppo!
Did you know that October is World Pasta Month?
In my house we like pasta at any time, but we’re always happy to have another reason to eat some yummy Italian food! Our family can definitely get into celebrating World Pasta Month with some good food!
We’re clearly in good company among pasta lovers. Pasta is so popular in the United States that 24% of the global consumption of pasta is by Americans – the largest of any country in the world! I’ve learned that the average American consumes 20 pounds of pasta annually. That sounds about right for me!
I especially love pasta as comfort food in the fall and winter when the weather turns colder, so I think World Pasta Month is perfectly situated in October. It’s a great time to fill up with some delicious pasta dishes!
One of my favorite places for Italian food is Buca di Beppo. They have great, authentic Italian cuisine, and the ambiance in the restaurant is always fun with their eclectic, vintage setting!
We have made some special memories at Buca di Beppo enjoying dinner together with the extended family. Buca’s family-style dishes make it easy to dine together as a large group.
During October, Buca di Beppo has a special Create Your Own Pasta Bowl experience in its restaurants in honor of World Pasta Month. It’s a fun way to personalize your meal! You can order your favorite pasta and sauce combination for the ultimate personal pasta bowl experience.
Buca makes it easy to create your perfect pasta bowl.
- First, you pick your pasta. Will it be spaghetti, linguine, penne, rigatoni or cavatappi?
- Next, select your sauce. Choose from marinara, alfredo, garlic olive oil, rosa, pesto or meat sauce.
- Choose up to three veggies. You have a choice of diced roma tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, artichokes, sautéed mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, green peas or sliced red onions.
- Pick a protein for your dish. Do you prefer chicken, prosciutto, meatballs, spicy sausage or mild sausage?
- Season it the way you like, and then enjoy your personalized pasta bowl!
There are so many possible combinations for your own perfect meal at Buca di Beppo!
