Red Sauce Lives In PEI

June 27th, 2018 § 0 comments

Traditional “red sauce” Italian restaurants have lost ground to “Northern Italian” places that limit the use of tomatoes and garlic in their cuisine. But, “red sauce” dishes still carry a powerful culinary punch. Sunny, warm weather at Prince Edward Island yesterday. But, the night turned chilly. HG/BSK desired something hearty. And, that’s what they got. BSK created a sauce of tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, olive oil and four Italian sausages (two mild and two hot). HG cooked (al dente) excellent Garafolo tagliatelle. With plenty of grated parmesan, red chile flakes and an accompaniment of Chilean red wine, HG/BSK were a happy duo as they ate and watched a dramatic, lengthy sunset. Must confess the sausages were just okay. They lacked the fennel zest of true Noo Yawk Italians. It seems unlikely that Esposito’s will open a branch on PEI. But, HG can always dream.
