Did you know that pasta is so popular in the United States, that 24% of the global consumption is by Americans? My family adores pasta, and it’s even better when I don’t have to cook it. I love going out to dinner. Being able to sit back and relax while someone else manages the cooking is heaven to me at the end of a busy week. Having someone cook a customized dinner for with the Create Your Own Pasta Bowl at Buca di Beppo is beyond heaven.
In honor of World Pasta Month, Buca di Beppo’s is offering a create your own pasta bowl promotion during the month of October. Guests can customize their dinner based on their favorites. First, guests choose a type of pasta (from list of five), next pick a sauce (from a list of six), third, add up to three vegetables (from a list of nine), fourth, add a meat option (from a list of five), and finally add an extra optional pop of flavor if desired.
Americans consume 6 billion pounds of pasta each year with the average American consuming 20 pounds of pasta annually. I’m guessing my husband and son probably eat double that estimate, so I’m happy that Buca Di Beppo serves their menu item family style. It’s a fun way to add some excitement to the usual weekday family dinner lineup, and even snap a #PastaSelfie or two.
Baby helped me create our delicious grilled mushroom, broccoli, sundried tomato and cavatappi pasta with Rosa sauce. DH’s contribution to our customized dish was the famous Buca Di Beppo meatballs that are as big as your head!
No family pasta dinner is complete without variety, so we added a few other menu items to round out our meal. Needless to say we had plenty of leftovers to take home too. The family style serving options make Buca di Beppo the perfect go to for holiday meal and take out too. Pasta is certainly one of the best comfort foods for sharing.
