There are few meals more wholesome than pasta fagioli – macaroni and beans. It’s comfort in a bowl, or even better, in a cast iron saucepan, as it comes at Campagnolo.
In keeping with the meat-focused menu at this new Dundas West restaurant, Campagnolo’s version ($16) is flavoured with smoked hock and topped with giant croutons.
Another hearty dish is the wild boar ragu, tripe, meatballs and spareribs on polenta ($21), and don’t skip on the warm olives and fried artichokes.
If our turkey feast fails, it’s pasta fazool tonight.
