Celebrating Pasta and Its Many Different Shapes, What Shapes You?

9:48:00 PM

What shapes you?

A question raised by San Remo PH this World Pasta Month as they celebrate pasta and its many different shapes. So, What shapes you?

Good thing that I'm a pasta lover and this really is one interesting story that I would like to share with you, my readers.

Pastas come in all shapes and sizes. There are the familiar favorites – spaghetti, macaroni, and lasagna – and there are also the more unique ones like the bowtie-shaped farfalle, the spiraled fusilli, and many more.

For San Remo Philippines, pastas are more than just wonderfully shaped noodle varieties. For them, pasta is the secret ingredient that shapes great family bonding experiences and memorable moments.

Pasta is undoubtedly an endearing favorite that has shaped how Filipinos bond. They have been part of numerous family dinners, romantic dinner dates, and even as baon lovingly prepared by Filipino moms everywhere.

To celebrate World Pasta Month and highlight the Filipinos’ affinity for the scrumptious mealtime staple, San Remo asks “What Shapes You?” because pasta can mean so much to different people. It’s a childhood favorite, a dinner-time staple, and the ultimate party meal all rolled into one hot and heaping bowl. The pastabilities are endless.

So, have you heard of San Remo? If not you might want to check this information about them.

San Remo Pasta is made from 100% Durum Wheat Semolina and offers the widest variety of pasta shapes in the Philippines including a wide selection of healthy pasta. San Remo have been the pasta people since 1936. That’s over 80 years of sharing the traditions and culture of pasta making with Australia.

Pasta Platter of Angel's Pizza, A Good Treat for Everyone

3:12:00 AM

Two or more is already a big number and since our family is just in a mid size, having some few platters is great for our dinner. Most of the time if want to just enjoy eating without the staple food, which is rice, we always manage to find the comfort of pasta. We love pasta and I think our kids get it from me. My wife, who loves to cook, would always find time to prepare pasta dishes but of course there are times that she just wanted to rest. So, there's always a restaurant to turn to. Glad that Angel's Pizza offers a variety of pasta with their Pasta Platter.

Pasta Platter from Angel's Pizza offers three variety of pasta dish; Mac and Cheese Platter, Carbonara Platter and Spaghetti Platter. good for 4 to 5 person per serving.
A week ago, my family was craving for pasta. Yes, and the only branch closest to our place was at Fairview. We were settled to go out for dinner that time but nature got a plan of their own and poured a really heavy rain fall. We couldn't get out. So, we decided to have it delivered. We called the branch and ordered their Pasta Platter plus some pizza and other dish that our kids love.

All the pasta platters comes with their signature bread stick that I like eating together with the pasta. Aside from the pasta that we ordered, pizza is also a good match our my kids love pizza that much.

So, if you want to skip the hassle of cooking, well, there's Angel's Pizza to call to. Just contact them and tell what you want to order and they'll deliver it. Just be sure that there's one that is near to your place. Great for family gatherings and barkada nights.

How Do You Like Your Pasta? AL DENTE!, Celebrating National Pasta Month

6:18:00 AM

Just right before the month of October ends Doña Elena Al Dente invited bloggers to celebrate the National Pasta Month. Kwento Ni Toto is a pasta lover but this is the first time that we've heard of a celebration that recognizes pasta and not just a single day but whole month celebration. It is great that we've managed to be in the event and know what it is all about. Since the name of the brand pertains to an Italian term, attendees thought of this for sure “How do you like your pasta?” Of course we like it AL DENTE!

Great Night At Sbarro

11:33:00 AM

It was Tuesday at exactly 5 pm, I rush out of the office and went straight to the bus terminal.  I think the distance is about 30 minutes of travel time.  It was a race against time.  I need to be there at the event at 6:30 pm.  

I hop in on the first bus that arrived.  I thought I could be there on time, unfortunately, the bus didn't run to what I have expected.  It runs like a tour bus.  Now I'm doomed I don't know if I will make it. 
To my disappointment I didn't make it on time but good enough I was able to be there together with my wife.

Hungry with the travel, I and my wife settled down and ate but of course I need to take pictures first before anything else.  I took a few shots and went to eating again.  Not really sure if this is my second or third time to eat Sbarro dishes but as what I can remember I really loved their pastas, especially the baked ones.   Since I love pasta I started my meal with the Baked Ziti, I liked it very much how they made it so creamy with just the right amount of flavor in it.  Then followed by the pizza with its tasty thin crust and toppings. Though the set of dishes are flavourful I would still stick to my favourite, the Baked Ziti.   

While having those yummy and tasty treats from Sbarro, Mr. Fred Salvador, Sr. Vice-President for Operations of Supersalute Food Corporation (SFC), the Philipine Franchise of Sbarro, Inc. joined us and made some chit chat with us.  He even asked about what we can say about the food and how was it.  He even disclose that all of their foods are freshly made.  He also added that they make their food.  Another secret that he shared to us is that most of their staff rose from the ranks, so clearly every Sbarro employee knows the ins and outs of Sbarro operations.  

Of course an event would not be complete without some good old raffle.  Luckily I get to bag the first draw with a Php2,000 worth of Gift Certificates.  Not bad for zooming straight from Pampanga.  Hahaha!  The grand prize bagged by JayL and it was an iPad 2.  Lucky guy!  It was really a great event because no one went home empty handed.  Thank you Sbarro!

A little History about Sbarro....
In 1956, Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro left Naples to migrate to the United States. Of course, their Italian roots were never far behind. Along with their three sons, Joseph, Mario and Anthony,they soon opened a salumeria, an Italian delicatessen in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, that was an exceptional showcase of authentic and fresh Italian fare, from freshly made mozzarella and homemade sausages, to traditional Italian delicacies and desserts, all based on the Sbarro family recipes.

As they branched out to more locations and grew into delivery for family celebrations in 1967, Carmela "Mama" Sbarro gave a new twist to the business: a restaurant with a pizza area in full view of customers and a fast moving self-service style, with the same Sbarro family tradition of delicious, authentic Italian food. The modern day Sbarro was born.

In 1972, Pampanga native Jaime "Jimmy" Salvador joined the Sbarro business. Jimmy worked alongside the original founders and their sons, living and breathing the family brand. He worked in operations as a store manager, then ran the corporate commissary in Brooklyn, and eventually served as Sbarro’s first Area Manager.

Then, in 1989, after 17 years of living in New York and working with the Sbarro family, Jimmy returned to the Philippines — carrying the Sbarro brand with him. Along with Ma. Teresa Rodriguez and her family, he opened the first Sbarro Philippines branch at the Annex in SM North Edsa in 1990 — the first Sbarro in all of Asia. Years later, Sbarro Philippines expanded to the Visayas, thanks to a partnership with Gerardo Luzuriaga and Marcelino Florete, Jr.

And so today, Sbarro Philippines continues to satisfy the cravings of Filipinos with 25 branches nationwide. And through all these years, Jaime Salvador – together with his family – ensures that Mama Sbarro’s legacy remains unchanged: the commitment to good food, fresh ingredients, excellent service and great value for money.

So what is Sbarro’s recipe for success? Over forty years later and with over 1,000 outlets worldwide, the secret remains the same. All across our values, traditions and recipes – It’s all about family.
