Yummy find…


In downtown,White Plains, NY… Via Veneto 26 –  “Finest Italian Restaurant in Westchester” – it certainly is! 20160816_183454.jpg

It’s one of those places I pass by several times a day and mean to try… some day. I’m glad a few friends went last night. Everything is delicious! The brick oven pizza, thin crust is the best – the “Antonella” had fresh basil,  tomato & prosciutto. They serve garlic & spices  olive oil with the bread that was out of this world yum – I poured it on my pizza! My friends also enjoyed the pasta and a chicken caesar wrap.

The restaurant is clean, friendly, good service and offers enough reasonably priced dishes. They also offer a nice Wine list.


On the menu…

It’s cool & rainy today…perfect for this hearty pasta dish.
I’ve made this same dish using Summer veggies like yellow squash & zucchini which is just as yum. Today, I used sausage. See, I really do eat meat!

Garlic Pasta w/Sausage & veggies

One large red onion, sliced
5 cloves of freshly minced garlic (we ❤ garlic!)
1/4 c Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( I use Spanish, Goya brand)
3 hot Sausage links – saute on low w/onions…add the garlic in the last few minutes to avoid browning/burning.

1/4 box frozen peas (I use frozen veggies most of the time until the Farmer's Market is in full swing)
1 box frozen broccoli
Salt (as desired)
Pepper (as desired)
Parmesan cheese (as desired)

1 lb of any Pasta. cook (Penne, elbow, etc.)

Mix the sauteed veggies & meat into the cooked pasta. Add an additional 6 T of olive oil to the pasta & add salt, pepper and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

This serves a house full/ a lot of leftovers!

Buen provecho!
