I am very aware that the spaghetti bolognese that I cook at home is nothing like the authentic Italian pasta that I’d experience in a five star restaurant but for a family meal it ticks our boxes especially on a school night.  However, sometimes it’s nice to ditch the family meal and have a real treat, and this is where Pasta Evangelists come in.  Do you want to hear more?

The Pasta Evangelists team reached out to me on Twitter and asked me if I would try out their fresh pasta dishes.  It was the first time I’d heard about their service so I was really keen to learn more.  Here’s what I found out…

How Does Pasta Evangelists Work

Every week the talented chefs at Pasta Evangelists create 5 authentic handmade Italian dishes for you to choose from.  You simply select the meals you would like to try from the menu and tell them when you would like it delivered.

You can sign up for a one off purchase or join the ‘Pasta Club’ and have meals delivered to your door over 5 or 10 weeks.

You’re fresh Italian dish is delivered to your door with pasta, sauce and any garnishes required.  There is also a really handy recipe card with step by step instructions for how to put your Italian meal together.

Making an Authentic Italian Meal at Home Couldn’t Be Easier

You’ve got your favourite Italian wine ready to go and some gelato in the freezer for dessert and all you need to do is cook your pasta.  If fresh pasta makes you nervous, there’s no need to worry as Pasta Evangelists have literally got everything in hand.

We tried the smoked salmon filled cuoricini with burro, dill and taralli breadcrumbs and the malloreddus alla campidanese from the week’s menu.  They sound like complicated dishes but trust me when I say you can create restaurant quality Italian food in your home in less than 5 minutes.  Yes, it really is true!

Each dish was colour coded so I knew exactly which component went with each meal.  Each pasta dish was cooked and on the table in around 5 minutes and they both really looked the part.  I was really impressed with my efforts, but truth be told Pasta Evangelists had done most of the hard work, I was simply assembling the final creation.

In both cases the pasta was delicious and the accompanying sauces were completely on point.  The smoked salmon was light and delicate and the campidanese sauce was authentic and rustic and complimented the malloreddus pasta perfectly.

Why Order From Pasta Evangelists

I will definitely be ordering from Pasta Evangelists again having sampled these two meals because I was really impressed with the quality and price.  We order takeaway food as a treat fairly often, and Pasta Evangelists offers a refreshing and unique change from our regular delivery service.

If this wasn’t enough, Pasta Evangelists are also turning some major heads in the food industry.  With Prue Lieth from The Great British Bake Off on board alongside Sunday Times critic Giles Coren and William Sitwell from Masterchef all singing their praises, you know your meal will be delizioso!

  1. ooh this sounds like an interesting & exciting option for giving me a night off in the kitchen.
    we hardly ever have a takeaway meal as hubby would rather cook for me, though I’m sure he would be very interested in fresh Italian pasta being delivered to the door.
