Oct 14, 2016

October is National Pasta Month and in honor of one of our favorite food months, Chef/ Partner Chris “Big Frankie” Favero at Frankie’s Scaloppine (900 N. Michigan Ave., fl. 5) shared with us some quick and easy (yet delicious) pasta recipes – some with only three ingredients for you to try at home.

First up, try this three-ingredient pasta complete with lemon, parmesan and olive oil.
