Everyone dreads that one interview question: "What would you say is your biggest weakness?" Well if we're being honest, it's carbs. Definitely carbs. Because why lie when you could dig into a pipin' hot plate of pasta in Montreal.
With the cool weather here (sorry, someone had to be the one to say it), there's never been a better time for one of the best dishes out there.
Although to be fair, any time is pasta time.
And with so many incredible places for food here in Montreal, you know you're bound to find an incredible dish.
Some places are more upscale, while some are more chilled and relaxed.
Kind of like pasta, itself.
You can have it as a celebration meal or you can have it as a last-minute dinner on a Tuesday night.
Because pasta doesn't judge.
You also know that it's made with so much love and passion that's absolutely contagious.
Even the names are so romantic.
Lasagne, spaghetti, fettucini.
Sounds like romantic poem. Nope, just my dinner order.
Now we understand why the Italians are so passionate....
