One of my coworkers gave me a gift certificate to Asti, so my friend Natalie and I headed there for lunch yesterday.
I had the daily special, linguine with pancetta and pork meatballs and toasted breadcrumbs. Oh, how I love pasta with meatballs. And from now on, I hereby declare that all pasta should be topped with toasted breadcrumbs.
Natalie had the polenta bowl with grilled portabello mushrooms and eggplant. I tried a spoonful of the polenta, and it was so tasty and comforting.
We shared the caramel budino for dessert… it’s basically the creamiest, most perfect caramel pudding ever. Natalie had coffee, I had my favorite Mighty Leaf tea.
If only every day was an Asti day. 🙂
