Finally, Saturday Night Pasta self-care packs are fit for national travel (sigh, wish we were too!). These packs are intended to be a gift – to give someone you care about a moment of self-care (and that person could very well be yourself).
The packs come in two themes – the comfort pack (chicken stock, Parmigiano Reggiano, butter and fregola) for times that call for a dish so simple it can be thrown together without much thinking and the revive pack (anchovy, garlic, capers, green olives and linguine) that gives a kick, punch and a pow of flavours.
THESE ARE PRE-ORDER. They will be ready to be shipped from Monday 13th September. Unlike Saturday Night Pasta Self-Care fresh packs - which are on available on select Saturday's - these are available all the time and can be sent nationwide.
THE REVIVE PACK
I think we are all in need of a restore, reset and revive– and this is THE dish to do it for us. Essentially, this sauce is puttancesa bianco – Napoli’s famed pasta dish but without the tomato. Spaghetti puttanesca translates to ‘spaghetti in the style of prostitutes’ and there are almost as many stories about the origin of this dish as there are ways to make it (you’ll find these in the pack). This dish is a kick, punch and a pow of flavours, which I suppose is why it was the dish of choice for Neapolitan ladies of the night – and why it’s also the perfect dish for us right now.
The pack features the best of the best to make this dish – Ortiz anchovies, El Serpis anchovy filled green olives (if you’ve never had the pleasure of eating these you are in for a real treat), Italian capers, a sprig of dried Sardinian oregano, breadcrumbs, garlic, lemon and dried chili all to be tossed through Di Martino x Dolce Gabbana linguine.
The pack also features Saturday Night Pasta self-care essentials – an eye patch mask for an instant “lift” and a small box of exquisite dark chocolate – because hot chocolate and self-care go hand-in-hand.
Like all SNP packs, this box is carefully packaged up and I hope, a real joy to receive (note the beautiful red and white check wrapping paper with illustrations of the ingredients in this box that I designed for each of these packs).
