Carry out Pasta in Knox-Henderson (Dallas)
I have a hectic evening and my in-laws are coming into town tonight. I wanted to get some pasta to bring home, so we can have a casual dinner. Any places people can suggest in the Knox-Henderson area? Was looking at Urbino Pizza e Pasta, but their reviews aren't consistent. Any suggestions?
Is the Central Market Cafe any good? I cook so much, and the only time we go out to eat is a nice dinner...no idea where to go get a simple weeknight meal.
I was there, just today. Also try, Civello's Raviolissimo on North Peak at Bryan. Arguably, the best (and, cheapest) FRESH pasta and ravioli (18 pieces for $5.00) in Dallas. That's where Jimmy's buys their pasta for their Italian wine dinners that they have in the back room. I think they sell sauce as well. If not, buy the (house made) marinara or vodka cream sauce at Jimmy's.
Btw, Civello's is open M-F 9-3 and Saturday by appointment only. keep those hours in mind if you go there.
My pappardelle from Holy Ravioli came out fantastic! They wrapped and folded one whole 6" wide 7' long sheet of beautifully made FRESH egg pappardelle pasta dusted with cornmeal between the sheets and separated at the folds with paper to make for easy unwrapping. I cut the long pasta sheet across at the folds (about 8" long) and then cut each 8" long piece into 3-two inch wide strips. Into salted boiling water for 6 minutes for perfect al dente pasta.
Then, slightly drained and into the pan of creamy porcine mushroom sauce with crisp bits of fried pancetta and drizzles of white truffle oil on the top. UNBELIEVABLE! My guests (and, myself) were blown away!
THANK YOU, HOLY RAVIOLI!
