Work is filling up my time and school starts tomorrow for me (going back for my Master’s!). But I didn’t want to neglect this blog…
For those in the San Diego area, specifically near Carlsbad, there is a great little family-owned deli called Pronto’s. They sell fresh home-made pastas that are delish! My husband and I tried the beef cannelloni last night for dinner. Pasta sheets rolled around ground sirloin seasoned with herbs and cheese. This was very flavorful and cooked up quite nicely. Because I was tired and lacked ingredients, I didn’t make a sauce from scratch; I just used classic Ragu and threw in some extra garlic and Italian seasoning. Besides, the husband likes Ragu (*sigh*). Despite that, the cannelloni really stood out and we both enjoyed our dinner immensely.
Pronto’s stocks a variety of pastas. I picked up a package of seafood ravioli, pumpkin ravioli, herbed gnocchi and a blue cheese ravioli that also has orange glazed pears in it. I plan on making a sage pesto for the pumpkin ravioli. I’ll be sure to blog about that…
Pronto’s also makes sandwiches, pretzel rolls, salads, etc. It’s a popular place for nearby workers to go to for lunch. I can vouch for their egg salad sandwich. Yum yum.
They also have imported bottled wine for sale, including a blood orange mimosa that was pretty good. Oh, and they are a bakery as well if you want something sweet.
