The last of the summer heat has passed us and we are stocking up on pasta. Some of you are genius meal planners who stock up and freeze the pastas you like to have at later date. We love to as well! All you have to do is freeze the fresh pasta flat in the packaging it comes in, then consolidate your pasta into a freezer bag. When you are ready to enjoy your pasta just drop it in your water directly from frozen and turn back time enjoying your favorites. We’ve got tons of pasta and sauce you could freeze this week. Another filled classic is back with BATS, we still have some STAR RAVIOLI and EGGPLANT PARMESAN MEZZALUNA to stock up on as well. If you area long noodle girl, we implore you to try TAGLIATELLE and NORMA before eggplant season has passed us by.
We read it right, BATS are back! This spooky pasta is another CPC exclusive you cannot get anywhere else. Festive black pasta is filled with a perfectly October match of CAPRA NERA goat feta and UNTIEDT’S pumpkin, then shaped like a cute little pasta bat. Feta is most commonly a goat’s milk cheese and you already know that CAPRA NERA’S farmstead feta is on another level. We season and roast the UNTIEDT’S pumpkin until that natural depth of flavor comes out and this season is perfectly encapsulated in pasta. Toss these bats in BROWN BUTTER & SAGE to complete the vibe.
You have one more chance for the fan favorite; roasted pear and manchego STAR RAVIOLI. We even heard from a beloved regular that has had a pear ravioli in Italy! Locally grown colette pears are roasted to concentrate and bring out that late summer perfect pome flavor. Pears are often combined with cheese and we think we found a perfect fit with ANTARES from COSMIC WHEEL CREAMERY. Antares is a bold, farmstead, cows milk, 12 month aged manchego with a decedent texture and finish. Antares is the brightest star in the scorpio constellation and is often called the “heart of the scorpion” so Rachael topically chose the star ravioli and made it black because we are so spooky. A must with BROWN BUTTER & SAGE.
There are a limited amount of EGGPLANT PARM MEZZALUNA available. The amazing eggplant from CALIFORNIA STREET FARM is just about out of season so enjoy asap, or freeze. EGGPLANT PARM MEZZALUNA is our take on another Italian American classic and elevating it to a beautiful CPC half-moon ravioli. Grown right in NE MPLS, this stunning eggplant is fried in olive oil until tender and savory. Mozzarella is hand-pulled by Rachael then combined with SARTORI PARMESAN and the fried eggplant for a true red sauce Italian beauty. Amazing with POMODORO and complete the vibe by making yourself unlimited salad as well.
