Inspiration: PIZZOCCHERI from Gottino

If you ever see “Pizzoccheri” on a menu, ORDER IT.Very seriously.

Pizzoccheri is not just something that sounds like Pinnocchio had a baby with the word “pizza” and a French term of endearment, mon cheri; it is a traditional Italian dish composed of buckwheat noodles (gluten-free!!!!), green cabbage, and fontina.

I had the pleasure of treasuring every moment (actually moaning… sounded weird, tasted good) eating this concoction in the kitchen of Gottino, the delightfully charming Italian wine bar/small plates restaurant on Greenwich Avenue in the West Village.  To add bliss to blissed out?  They have a “prosciutto pesto” on the menu, that is NUT-FREE, made with prosciutto, sage, and parmesan.  Mmmmm mmm mmmm.

Moral of the story?  Find some Pizzoccheri and eat it.

Run.  (before eating it, of course.)

<–my dining room.

<–buck. wheat.

<–no child left behind.

Gottino is located at 42 Greenwich Ave, New York, NY 10011.  Open 8 a.m. until 2 a.m. every day.
