Coming soon: National Spaghetti Day

As we bid adieu to 2011, 2012 is already shaping up with a number of foodie events. One of the first out of the gates is National Spaghetti Day on Wednesday, January 4. Two local restaurants are planning pasta specials to celebrate this (obscure) holiday.

Fandango Restaurant in Pacific Grove will be serving a lunch special of Pasta St. Boyan–a traditional pasta dish from the south of France that’s served with sun-dried tomatoes, gorgonzola cheese and walnuts. The pasta lunch special will be available for $14.95 (tax, tip and beverages extra) on January 4.

Up the hill, Alberto’s Restaurant is also planning a special dinner to celebrate National Spaghetti Day.

Alberto’s will offer its favorite pasta dishes for just $10 (plus tax). Here’s the special menu for the evening:
Linguine Puttanesca with tomatoes, capers, anchovies and garlic in a light tomato sauce

Penne Arabbiata with spicy marinara sauce over penne pasta

Rigatoni con Salsiccia prepared with fresh tomatoes and Italian sausages

Ziti al Forno with ziti pasta in marinara sauce baked with ricotta and mozzarella cheese

Linguine Pomodoro with Vine ripened tomatoes, garlic and marinara sauce over tender linguine

For $5 extra, add a glass of house red or white wine.

Reservations are recommended for the evening–call 831-373-3993 to make yours.
