Mixed emotions: Sadly, the pasta peddler has moved out of their former location at the Horsefeathers Market. On the plus side, they’ve opened a bigger location with Blackbird Sweets on Hertel Avenue. The two merchants are sharing the space, selling their delicious goodies side by side. The new spot has plenty of space to sit and have a cupcake or two after picking up some freshly made pasta.
If you’re new to The Pasta Peddler operation, here’s a rundown. They hand-make gourmet pastas, sauces and ravioli. The best part, they create unique flavors that you don’t see every day, infusing flavor into the base of your homemade dish from the start.
You’ll find pasta flavors like Hot Pepper Linguini, Artichoke Black Olive Tagliatelle, Tomato Basil Linguini , Roasted Red Pepper Linguini, Garlic Parsley Tagliatelle, and many more.
In the ravioli department, they’re producing cheese, spinach cheese, pumpkin and stuffed hot pepper ($7 per package). Compliment any of them with a Roasted Red Pepper or Tomato Burgundy Sauce ($7 per jar).
Now I’m hungry.
On top of that, find fruit butters and of course a frequently changing selection of cupcakes from Blackbird Sweets. Here are a few from their website to wet your whistle.
- Pumpkin Pie – Pumpkin cupcake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and pie crust crumb, $2.50
- Eggnog – Eggnog spice cake, rum and cream cheese frosting, $2.50
- Sparkling Sarah – Sugar Cookie cupcake with vanilla bean buttercream topped with a sparkling red flower, $2.50
- Blueberry Cheesecake – blueberry cupcake, cheesecake filling, blueberry buttercream and pie crust crumb, $2.50
Now that they are officially open on Hertel, stop in Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9am to 7pm or Sundays 9am to 1pm. There’s pretty much no excuse not to have a decent homemade pasta dish followed by a unique cupcake dessert now and again.
