Food Pairing - Prosecco and Pasta

Prosecco Wine  is made from Glera grapes grown in the north-east portion, almost to the tip of Italy. The vineyards in this region boast of a long history of wine making that can be traced back to the 1800s. The unique terrain and climate prevalent in the Province of Treviso-Veneto give the bubbly Prosecco its uniquely brut taste with hints of citrusy and fruity flavors of grapes aged using fermentation.

 It is generally bubblier than beer but keeps bubbling for a shorter period when compared to champagne. Diet watchers, however, can forego the bubbles for a lesser amount of calories per glass. One glass of Prosecco contains 120 calories versus 130 calories in a glass of champagne. If you end up sipping an entire bottle, you can expect to put on a less of 60 Prosecco calories than if you had champagne.

What foods go with prosecco? The brut taste and dry finish of a Prosecco palate is intended to clean the mouth and tongue of taste which makes it an ideal apertif just as well as it is a great companion to almost any simple, straightforward dish. Even though a Prosecco is a highly versatile wine that can be paired with almost anything from herbed toasts to spicy asian noodles, none can beat a traditional Prosecco and homemade pasta pairing.

 Perhaps you’re cooking for a lovely date night, hosting a tight party with your besties or, just want to flip your kitchen for a satisfying solo treat? Below are two easy and tasty pasta recipes that are guaranteed to go well with your elegant bottle of Prosecco.
