Pasta from Capone’s

One of Jen’s classmates recommended that we check out Capone Foods, a food store specializing in fresh pasta right in our neighborhood (near Union Square, Somerville). While I was out running errands a few weeks ago I stopped by. As I stepped in through the door, I was greeted by a large glass-doored refrigerator full of pastas and sauces. A handy chart posted on the wall presented sauces and types of pasta in a matrix marked with the recommended combinations. After poring over the chart and soliciting a recommendation from the young lady behind the counter, I decided on chicken-prosciutto ravioli with tomato-porcini sauce. Somehow I was able to contain the temptation to pick up a freshly baked loaf of bread or some cheese.

We had the ravioli for dinner the following evening. Preparation was quick and easy. While I was expecting a little more flavor out of the ravioli, the texture was good and the sauce was robust and flavorful. Will definitely be heading back to sample the fresh pasta; the store may become a weekly stop on the way back from the farmer’s market this summer.

    That looks great! I wish I had known about that when I lived in Somerville.
