Tushar posted on 03 November

Does pasta make your heart beat ‘fasta’? From penne to fusilli to bow tie, from arrabbiata to carbonara to Alfredo, we’ve got our favourites all decided. And yes, you can take a bite.

The Big Chill

What to order: Baked Penne Primavera, Chicken Ravioli with Creamy Parmesan, Fusilli with Pepperoni and Ricotta. However, if you want to venture beyond these three, we think you’re safe ordering pretty much anything off The Big Chill pasta menu.

Public Affair
