Did you know that October is World Pasta Month? We decided to celebrate by meeting Jasmine from Simply Real Moms for lunch. We were traveling to Reno and there is a Buca di Beppo pretty close to the area so it was perfect!
We called up Jasmine and asked if she wanted to meet us for lunch to celebrate World Pasta Month. It was the perfect lunch enjoying the new Create Your Own Pasta Bowl menu at Buca di Beppo! HELLO YUM!
We even took a #PastaSelfie while we were there! So fun!
The new Create Your Own Pasta Bowl was so much fun! You get to choose what you want for pasta, sauce, toppings, meat, and so much more. We had a lot of fun coming up with our pasta. Everyone got to express their opinion on which combinations would work the best.
In the end, we picked penne pasta with a pesto sauce along with sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, prosciutto, and poached garlic. So good! Oh my gosh, there was so much delicious pasta it was amazing.
Check out some of the options you can chose from with the Create Your Own Pasta Bowl Menu!
Pick Your Pasta – spaghetti, linguine, penne, rigatoni or cavatappi.
Pick your sauce – marinara, alfredo, garlic olive oil, rosa, pesto or meat sauce
Pick your veggies – diced Roma tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, artichokes, sautéed mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, green peas or sliced red onions.
Pick your Meat – chicken, prosciutto, meatballs, spicy sausage or mild sausage.
Add a bit of Extra seasoning – Add a pinch or a handful of crush red pepper and/or poached garlic.
Hello yum! You have a pasta dish created just for you and your dinner partners! LOVE IT!
Did you know 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. Americans consume 6 billion pounds of pasta each year with the average American consuming 20 pounds of pasta annually! Amazing!
October is the perfect month to bring your family and friends and have everyone share their personalized #PastaSelfie photo at Buca di Beppo!
We loved being able to personalize our pasta. We could pick our favorite menu items and combine them into one delicious pasta. This is perfect if you have any picky eaters in your family. They can customize the pasta with all of their favorites. Plus you will most likely have leftovers so they can enjoy them for another meal.
Since we were traveling, we sent our leftovers home with Jasmine. I must say it was a bit hard to part with all of the delicious pasta and garlic bread. We need to plan another great dinner date out at Buca di Beppo so we have leftovers to bring home with us.
