Pre-game at Pasta Pantry!

What better time to grab a bite than before a game? October brings many things, including some of our favourite sports like hockey and football. Whether you’re cheering your son or daughter on at a local event or you’re grabbing the gang together to catch the game at home, having a tasty meal before game is practically a tradition at this point. 

But we know why many people are hesitant to go out to a restaurant beforehand. We all have horror stories of anxiously checking the time and waiting for the the waiter or waitress to come around with the bill. This puts you in a panicked state, forcing you to feel nervous before you root for your team. In order to make your eating experience less stressful, Pasta Pantry uses a cafeteria-style system when it comes to serving your food. This means you can sit down with the family and enjoy dinner at your own pace, or sneak some bites in and get a filling meal if you’re pressed for time. Either one of these options is possible at Pasta Pantry. The best part? Because you’ll be moving down the line, you’ll be able to see and smell all of our delicious Italian eats before they reach your plate!

In order to get you ready for what you’ll dine on at Pasta Pantry, we’ve picked a few options that are worth checking out if this you have yet to come through our doors.

When it comes to all things pasta, we pride ourselves in being the ultimate spot to grab a mouthwatering Italian meal in Edmonton and Sherwood Park. For a combo that won’t break the bank, try a a large plate of pasta and pair it with one of our salads! You’ve got an all star roster to choose from in terms of what sauce to choose from, including our Meat, Spicy Italian Sausage, Four Cheese, Tomato Vegetable, Pesto and Alfredo. Meals like these are popular with FC Edmonton, the local soccer sensation (check out this post for more info on our relationship with FC Edmonton and the Ronald McDonald House of Edmonton).

But what would pre-gaming be without a couple of brews? We’ve got a long list of drinks including Heineken, Peroni, Coors Light, Canadian, and Kokanee for pairing your meal with your favourite beer. If you’re not a beer fan, don’t worry;  we’ve also got a series of house wines that are always changing. If you’d like to know what wines we currently have in stock, feel free to give us a ring at 780-467-3777 or just ask one of our staff the next time you’re at Pasta Pantry.

Looking to try our signature dish? As much as we love every item on the menu, sometimes you need to send the MVP in to score the game winning goal. The Pasta Pantry Pasticcio is unlike anything you’ve ever had in the past. This combination of baked pasta and sauce (you’ve got three options to choose from: Meat, Hot Italian Sausage, and Vegetable,) means there’s plenty of ways you can enjoy this plate of tasty, cheesy goodness. And we definitely don’t skimp out on the cheese; we use a blend of mozza, parmigano, pecorino romano, ricotta, and asiago: five cheeses that, when brought together, give you a one-of-a-kind meal.

If those foods made you hungry, why don’t you make Pasta Pantry your place to pick up a pre-game meal? Also, give us a like and follow on Facebook and Twitter, respectively; we’ll keep you up to date with everything pasta related!
