What’s New in 2012?

Pasta Tavola will continue to add more convenient, nutritious meal options to its menu over the next year.  We will also be expanding our gluten-free product offerings to include a variety of gluten-free baked goods. This is an exciting development for us and we will update you as things unroll.

We continue to bring some unique tastes to our ravioli.  One customer told us that our ravioli “are like little pockets of heaven”.  Many of you agree —our homemade stuffed pasta flies out of our doors.

What makes our ravioli so good?  We make them in small batches, without additives or preservatives using only the freshest ingredients.  We incorporate fresh local products whenever possible.  In the up & coming year we will be incorporating artisan cheeses in our ravioli. If you have a favourite cheese that you would like to see incorporated into a little piece of heaven, please let us know!

Our Build your Own Meals and per person Catering options were very popular this Christmas.  We offer complete dinner meal packages for larger business or gatherings.  Watch for some new additions to these options, as well as some “lighter fare” catering items.

At Pasta Tavola we are dedicated to customer satisfaction and appreciate the input our loyal customers provide us.  In 2012 we want to hear from you.  What would you like to see on our menu? How are we doing and what can we do differently? We hope that you will take the time to answer some of our questions.  There just might be some free “pasta” in it for you!

Santa loves Pasta Tavola!

Christmas is fast approaching and the Pasta Ladies have been busier than “Santa’s elves” adding new food items to our menu to make your holiday festivities even more memorable. Here’s what’s in store this month.

Throughout the month of December Pasta Tavola will roll-out its holiday Italian pastries and sweets. The star of our sweets menu is our homemade cannoli. This Northern Italian treat known as “little tube” is an Italian pastry filled with a delicious ricotta cheese filling. Our version has a dash of orange zest and milk chocolate just for added taste and decadence. In addition to cannoli we welcome the return of our homemade ricotta cookies, Zia’s ginetti sweets and custard tarts—big hits with our customers around the holidays.

The Pasta Ladies are very excited to begin building its “La Piazza” market. This is a work in progress but our hope is to bring our customers a selection of high-quality, tasty products that not only make cooking easy and nutritious but also support the many local food producers we have met over the past year. We will continue to create homemade products under the “Pasta Tavola” label but we will also introduce other premium culinary fare to complement your Pasta Tavola meal.

In the market you will find homemade dips, olive oils and vinegars, gluten-free baked goods and more. The Pasta Ladies have been on the hunt for only the best products on the market to retail in our shop. Any products we sell have met with our own high-quality standards of excellence.

Over the past month we have added even more food options to our menu including convenient microwaveable meals and fresh salad greens and vinaigrettes. The variety of our ravioli products continues to expand with the addition of our Chicken and Sage ravioli, our Smoked Water Buffalo Scamorza ravioli and this month a Slow Roasted Tomato with Asiago Cheese ravioli. We are currently working on an oven-ready gourmet pizza that is made on a homemade gluten-free shell. In-store tastings will begin in the next few weeks—all details will be posted on facebook, twitter and at www.pastatavola.ca.

With the arrival of a new pasta machine, we will continue to add to the variety of fresh pastas offered in our shop. Watch for our own “mac & cheese” as well as a new spaghetti, pappardelle and rotini shape pasta.

One of our most exciting additions to the shop has been the introduction of authentic Italian and artisan cheeses. We have tasted such a variety of wonderful tasting local cheeses that we just had to share them with our customers in-store. Try artisanal sheep cheese from KendalVale farm in Newtonville Ontario or smoked water buffalo scamorza cheese made from milk from the Ontario Water Buffalo Company in Stirling. Tastings happen this Saturday in-store.

Have you planned your holiday meals, Christmas party or staff potluck? Pasta Tavola offers per person catered meals as well as “build your own dinner options” which allows you to choose only the dinner items you require. Choose from a variety of pasta trays including lasagnes, cannelloni, pasta bakes and chicken alfredo. Our trays feed 2 people to 25 people or more. Assorted bread trays, sweets, tossed salad trays and dips and spreads are also available to complete your meal. We’ll even have your trays heated and ready to serve! Order early to cross dinner planning off your busy holiday to-do list!

Here are our store hours during the holiday season:

December 24th – 10:00 a.m.to 3:00 p.m.
December 25-27th CLOSED
December 28-30- Regular Hours
December 31st – 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
January 1 &2 – CLOSED
January 3 – Open regular hours.

Finally, as we approach our 1 year anniversary we would like to thank all of our wonderful customers who have supported us. Thank you for spreading the word about our products. Our pasta shop continues to grow and evolve because of you. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Mangia Bene. Eat Well.

Welcome to November at Pasta Tavola!

The Pasta Ladies want to thank everyone for their support during World Pasta Week!   It was a great success with many newcomers coming into the shop to check out our offerings. We can’t wait to do it again next year! Congratulations to all our prize winners who walked away with Bulls Tickets, a catered lunch and some of our savoury products.  Remember you can continue to win Belleville Bulls tickets and other prizes by filling out a ballot in-store at Pasta Tavola.

It’s hard to believe that we are coming up to our one year Anniversary.  In the next few months we will continue to launch new menu items that make cooking easy for you and your family.

This month we are launching a new line—ready-to-go microwaveable meals.  These dishes are sold in single servings, fresh as well as frozen.  They are perfect for a nutritious lunch, to take to the cottage or camp or to keep in the freezer for use on that snowy winter’s day!

If you’ve been to the shop recently, you will  have noticed that there are some new bake tray offerings. We now have a Vegetable Lasagne and Vegetable Cannelloni tray as well as a Chicken Alfredo bake tray on the menu.

Other items we offer are tossed salads and homemade salad dressings.  We are also introducing some authentic Italian cheeses to our store.  The Pasta Ladies have searched out the best in Italian cheeses and have found a Parmigiano-Reggiano and Asiago Cheese that is to die for.  We hope to add more quality cheeses in the future so stay tuned!

Our Friday night specials were such a hit during World Pasta week that we decided to keep them as a standard menu item.  On Thursday AND Friday nights we will be offering two great specials:

Pass da Pasta Special! 4 servings of any of our classico pasta, a medium tomato sauce, meatballs and focaccia bread for $19.99

Make it a Lasagne Night!  Medium meat or three cheese lasagne for 4, a tossed salad with homemade vinaigrette and our signature focaccia bread for $25.99!

Many of our customers have been taking advantage of our “heat-and-eat” service when it comes to bake trays.  A great idea if you want a nutritious meal without the hassle of cooking.  Just call us by 11:00 a.m. and we’ll have your bake tray (lasagne, cannelloni, chicken alfredo tray) heated and ready for pick-up by 5:00 p.m.  Additional charge applies.

Did you know that Pasta Tavola offers small event and business catering?  For your next board meeting, business lunch, baby shower or staff party, why not consider a homemade meal made by the Pasta Ladies?  We also offer party trays that serve up to 20 people.  Check out our website at www.pastatavola.ca under “our menu” for details.

Lastly, our 2nd season at the Belleville Farmer’s Market has ended.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by to visit us throughout the summer.  Remember you can still purchase your favourite Pasta Tavola food items in-store on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Check us out on facebook and twitter for all our menu updates and pasta shop happenings.
