Like sci-fi aliens, remixed polka jams, and water, pasta can take many forms. Celebrate its myriad incarnations with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of quick-serve Italian fare at Pastabilities in Buffalo Grove.
This casual, quick-serve eatery crafts savory Italian dishes from all-natural ingredients. Build your own pasta creation from the noodles up, with five traditional bases including mostaccioli, angel hair, bowtie, and ascot ($6.19 each). Five types of specialty pastas are also available ($6.99 each). Noodles are smothered in your choice of six flavorful gravies such as meat sauce, pesto, and marfredo, a combination of alfredo and marinara. Cap off your plate with chicken ($2.29), shrimp ($3.50), or fresh mozzarella ($1.25). Or, leave the edible architecture to the professionals and select one of 10 tried and tested pasta plate blueprints ($7.77–$11.27). Waist-watchers can indulge in a bevy of low-carb options such as the breadcrumb-free eggplant parmesan ($8.39). Carbo loads also come in convenient hand-held form with hearty sandwiches such as Frankie’s Italian beef ($6.99).
Forks twirl through build-your-own pastas in a wide array of sauces and toppings, which lead Pastabilities' menu of Italian fare. Portobello mushrooms, eggplant, chicken, and beef steep in warm lakes of marinara, regaling nostrils with tales of sun-soaked tomato fields and scarecrows' first steps. A full line of retail sauces and pastas crafted in-house for shipment to doorsteps begs to fill steaming pots in home kitchens, and catering trays parade pasta and panini for up to six people or three sets of Hall & Oates impersonators.
