TechWizard Feature: I Tried the Simple Hack That Promises to Make Restaurant Quality Pasta at Home
We’ve all been there – coming home from work with no dinner plans and only basic ingredients in the cupboard. But what if you’re craving something different? Something more luxurious than your usual pasta dinner? That’s where Pasta Evangelists comes in. This artisan pasta brand has just launched a delivery service in Manchester, and I had the opportunity to try it out.
Pasta Evangelists sent me three of their pasta dishes through their recipe box service, which is available online. These are the same meals you would find on their Deliveroo menu, but packaged up and sent through the post to be consumed within a few days of ordering. The best part is that they have a variety of dishes available, including options for vegetarians and vegans.
The first dish I tried was the rigatoni with sundried tomato pesto and toasted almonds. It came in a neat brown paper bag with all the ingredients and clear instructions on the back. The sundried tomato pesto was rich and flavorsome, balanced well with garlic, basil, and a hint of heat. It felt much more luxurious than the jarred pesto I usually use. Surprisingly, it was also remarkably creamy for a vegan pesto.
Next up was the vegan pea and shallot ravioli with a spicy pistachio pesto. This dish was a highlight for me. The combination of lemon zest and pistachio created a fresh and zingy flavor, reminiscent of a southern Italian summer. The pesto had a great nutty texture, although I personally would have preferred a bit more chili.
Finally, I tried the spaghetti alla chitarra with spicy arrabbiattisima sauce. While there was nothing wrong with this dish, it didn’t stand out as much as the other two. The spaghetti was a welcome change from my usual cheap alternative, and the arrabbiattisima sauce had a pleasant spiciness. However, it didn’t have the same remarkable flavor as the other dishes.
Overall, the portion sizes of all three dishes were hearty, and the meal kits are reasonably priced. Mains range from £7.50 to £12.75, with options like lobster, crab, and prawn tortelloni. Sides start at £3.25, including classic focaccia and buttery olives.
If you’re looking to elevate your pasta dinner at home, Pasta Evangelists’ delivery service is worth a try. The convenience of having fresh, delicious pasta delivered to your door is a game-changer. Whether you’re a vegan or a meat lover, there are plenty of options to choose from. So why settle for basic when you can have restaurant-quality pasta at home?
