Get pasta and get local at Mangi Con Amore

I was already sold on the best fresh pasta I have ever tasted, in about four minutes in the comfort of your own kitchen.  When I found out that Mangi Con Amore sources all of their produce ingredients from the local farmers markets where they sell, my admiration went up another notch.  This vendor is the real deal, selling all-natural and incredible tasting Italian foodstuffs that are BOTH locally made and locally sourced when possible.

I cannot say enough good things about the delicious handmade raviolis from Mangi.  Last fall I was loving the pumpkin–a little browned butter and sage is all it needs because the filling takes center stage.  Right now I am craving the earthiness of the wild mushroom ravioli.  If ravioli is not your thing, I would encourage you to try to simple traditional trofie.  For something with one ingredient (really, what has one ingredient?) the flavor and texture is incredible.  I love to grab some summer produce at the market and throw together a simple basil pesto or heirloom tomato sauce and serve it with this rustic pasta.  If you are really time (or cooking) challenged, Mangi Con Amore also sells an assortment of their delicious pre-made sauces.  At $7-$8 a jar they are not inexpensive, but this is the only thing I have tasted that approaches the flavor of homemade.  Certainly a meal from Mangi Con Amore is much less than dinner at your local trattoria.

Finally, what Italian meal is complete without dessert?  Enter the cannoli.  Growing up in a city back east with a large Italian immigrant population, we would buy these for special occasions.  A perfect cannoli has a crunchy, flaky pastry tube with creamy, sweet and smooth ricotta filling.  In California, I have never had one that didn’t have a soggy shell or watery filling.  Thankfully, Mangi Con Amore sells their cannolis with the filling outside the shell–you just fill them and serve.  They are the perfect ending to any special meal.

You can find these Italian treats and many more at the Mangi Con Amore stand at these Orange County farmers markets:

Irvine Tuesday, San Juan Capistrano, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Irvine,  Laguna Beach and Laguna Niguel.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
