It’s not often that I get pasta when I go to a restaurant. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I feel like most restaurants don’t make quality pasta dishes. In fact, I feel like most pour dry pasta out of a prepackaged bag into a vat of boiling water and sell it off as if they made it themselves. It’s disappointing. However, when I saw zucca (which is an Italian word for pumpkin or butternut squash) on the menu at Scaddabush, my gut instinct told me to try it.
They always say to trust your gut instinct and I’m glad I did. The zucca ravioli was so fresh you could tell it was a world of a difference in comparison to those mediocre Italian restaurants. The butternut squash filling was so smooth and creamy. The ravioli was sitting on a bed of hazelnut butter cream sauce and was topped off with grated Grana Padano cheese, roasted butternut squash cubes and fried sage. It was just a delicious mélange of flavours. If you ever get a chance to go to Scaddabush, I would highly recommend this dish.
