Tripp turned me onto Cavanna - a fresh pasta place in the far west end. They carry all sorts of fresh pasta from spinach fettuccini to gnocchi to tagliatelle. The specialty pasta can vary from day to day. I picked up some artichoke ravioli tonight and after boiling it I sauteed the pasta pillows in browned unsalted butter and fresh sage. Yummy! And they are a couple of doors down from Wine Lovers. Thursday is a great day to go. Wine Lovers has a wine tasting from 5:30 - 7 PM. Go sample some wine, choose a bottle for dinner, pick up some fresh pasta, and maybe, some sauce. Cavanna offers a variety of sauces such as vodka cream and walnut as well as pesto.
