{Go there}: Lucchesi's Ravioli and Pasta Company.

I tell my students all the time to work smarter not harder. And when it comes to dinner, sometimes that is exactly what you have to do.

I have heard people over the years talking about "picking something up" from Lucchesi's Ravioli and Pasta Company but had never been myself. On Friday afternoon when I found myself browsing my Pinterest for recipe ideas, I found a pappardelle pasta recipe with meat sauce that I was salivating over. Fast forward a few hours and tracking down ingredients in the grocery store just didn't seem like fun. I realized really what I wanted was the pappardelle pasta and so a friend suggested going by Lucchesi's to see if they had any.




I went to their store on Sanderlin off Mendenhall and had fun exploring what all they offered. Towards the back of the store there are freezers with all sorts of pastas and ready made meals you can grab and go. 

On the side wall there are fresh pastas of all kinds in a refrigerator, with sauces and salads as well.


There are also other Italian-oriented grocery goods in the store:


On the other end of the store there is a counter where you can place orders for fresh food to eat there or to go. I hear their pizzas, which can come uncooked for you to make at home, are especially delicious. Planning on trying those next time!


So on that Friday night I did find my pappardelle pasta, which I paired with a tomato wine cacciatore sauce. We got a salad with fresh Italian dressing as well and it hit the spot. 

Lucchesi's was a great option for an easy, fast, homemade dinner that night and I can imagine will be one of our new go-to's in the future. 

In pastas and pizzas,

This is where Bruce Smedley stocks up on his cheese options for parties. Always hear him talk about it. It's so close to school I should swing in! Heavens, glad to see what it looks like on in the inside.
I miss ya, hope you're doing well.
