Pasta e Pesto pop up 4-24-17
This visit was no exception....
The 1st course (Appetizer) Antipasto was a wonderful salame and pepperoncini roll up with basil infused cream cheese. Simply scrumptious.

Our 3rd course was (salad) Insalata -
Spring salad and arugula mix, apple slices, almonds, feta cheese, cranberries, and bacon crumbles with a citrus maple dressing. I've always had the belief that tomatoes are the only fruit that belongs in a salad. Well, once again I was greatly mistaken. This too was a tasty dish. (I may need to re-examine my food snobbery).
Followed by the 4th course (Entrée) Secondo
Arrosto di manzo. Roast beef topped with a Balsamic glaze, served with Spring vegetables and basil- butter mashed potatoes. This was a pleasant surprise too. At first glance, I thought the potatoes were a sauce! They served this plate with a steak knife, that was not needed due to how tender the roast beef was. I simply cut it with my fork. The balsamic glaze on top of the veggies was delicious.

Fresh fruit atop a home made crust topped with lime infused whipped cream. This was good, but I'm a chocoholic, so I thought it would have been great with some shaved chocolate on top.
In addition to these pop ups, Pasta e Pesto also has a tremendous lunch & dinner menu. One of my personal favorites is the Caesar salad.
