I’ve always been a sucker for pasta. All those delicious carbs, smothered in tomato or pesto sauce, and then covered with cheese? Yes please. Catelli pasta had a fun event to celebrate their 150th birthday.
Chef Cory Vitiello was with us, creating delicious pasta recipes. I really loved the venue, I had never been to the Fifth Grill before. It as such an interesting space, with a beautiful patio.
It was a fun evening of connecting with others and of course, eating!
In honor of their birthday, the recipies that they’ve created can be found here!
My favourite Catelli creation is the one I’m sharing with you below!
