At Buca, pasta is our passion. Come in and let our chefs prepare for you one of our specialty or traditional pasta dishes. Feeling adventurous and want to try something new? Our Spicy Chicken Rigatoni pairs chicken breast with garlic, crushed red pepper, and peas in a spicy rosa sauce. Want to stick to the classics? Our Fettuccine Alfredo or Spaghetti with Meatballs will never disappoint. No matter what you choose, it will be cooked to perfection and served to you by our attentive wait staff.
Celebrate later around your home table by serving our pasta gift as a side dish or a main. Make it your own with olive oil, garlic, tomato, and hot pepper flakes. Pump up the protein with some beans or meat for a richer flavor. Add bright vegetables and fresh herbs like basil and parsley. Make a tried and true family favorite, toss up a simple pesto, or top with a thick, chunky sauce. Make it light and fresh or creamy and cheesy. Whatever you choose, we want you to carry our restaurants’ fun, festive environment into your own kitchen.
Besides being delicious, pasta possesses a variety of nutritional benefits. The starchy carbohydrate contains minerals and vitamins, such as vitamin B, which includes folic acid and niacin. Protein and cholesterol levels range between pastas. Pasta made with eggs contains twice as much protein as pasta made without eggs, but pasta made without eggs contains no cholesterol. Since whole grains have been proven to be beneficial in the fight against heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes, and obesity, whole grain pasta is a delicious way to add more whole grains to your diet. Whole wheat pastas contain additional important minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, and manganese. Pasta is also low on the glycemic index, meaning it is digested slower than most other carbohydrates, preventing blood sugar spikes and providing a steady supplies of energy.
A surge of Italian immigrants to North America in the late 19th century changed our nation’s diet, but pasta is now a staple in most American kitchens and restaurants. Whether paired with olive oil, vegetables, fish, cheese, or meat, pasta is embraced for its versatility, availability, and affordability. This pantry necessity is incorporated into soups, lasagnas, baked dishes, and salads. While initially simply tossed with tomato sauce and oil, pasta dishes are now only limited by a chef’s creativity. So come to Buca to experience our chefs’ masterpieces and then test out your own talent at home with our complimentary 1 pound bag of pasta to celebrate World Pasta Day. One day only—October 25
