La Bottega Nicastro‘s is a local Italian gourmet food mart in Ottawa. I’m not Italian nor do I “love” Italian food–but hot damn: you make a good sauce, Mr Nicastro!
Each of these jars was $2.99. This stuff is downright drinkable. I made a pasta dish using a jar of Wood Oven Roasted Garlic pasta sauce, and a package of Organic “Fantasia” brown rice pasta. The “Fantasia” aspect probably refers to the whimsical shapes which were totally fun to play with (yes, I’m 23…):
Of course, I threw in fresh cilantro because it’s like… crack to me. And I put it in everything. I served this gluten-free dish with Art-Is-In dill & potato bread (obvs not GF) from the Natural Food Pantry.
