What would Italian food be without pasta? Pasta is the most widely used ingredient in Italian cooking. It comes in different shapes and sizes and can be stuffed with tasty ingredients, layered in baked dishes, or served with succulent sauces.
It can be served as the main dish or as a side dish. Whatever the occasion, great Italian food calls for the perfect pasta! At our restaurant in Naples, FL, here are a few of our favorites:
Rigatoni – Its short tubular shape is perfect for catching delicious ingredients such as our bolognese sauce and amatriciana sauce.
Spaghetti – A classic, and the perfect pasta for twining vegetables in our primavera sauce, as well as delicious clams in our white clam sauce.
Fettuccine – With its flat, thick and lengthy shape, it is perfect for thicker sauces such as alfredo. It’s also a great pasta for getting a hearty serving while spinning your fork!
Gnocchi – This is the Italian potato pasta dumpling, perfect for pairing with meats such as our bolognese sauce or side by side with our famous meatballs or sausages.
Lasagna – Who can resist these famous long, wide noodles set between layers of ricotta cheese, a mixture of pork and beef, and topped with mozzarella cheese.
At Rosedale Brick Oven, we let you create your own perfect pasta dish, by choosing from a variety of sauces such as:
Amatriciana – A flavorful classic. Sautéed pancetta, onions, and garlic with a dash of red pepper flake and fresh basil, simmered with imported Neapolitan Roma tomatoes.
Alla Vodka – A house specialty – crushed imported Neapolitan Roma tomatoes, sautéed garlic, imported prosciutto, cream and a touch of vodka.
Rosedale’s Marinara – A light, meatless tomato sauce, using imported Neapolitan Roma tomatoes, red wine, sautéed garlic, onions and fresh basil.
White clam – Whole baby clams, sautéed with EVOO, fresh garlic, white wine, julienne onions and chopped fresh basil.
