Yesterday was Mother’s birthday. I spent most of the previous week recruiting her friends for a surprise dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, Salute in Hartford. It was really lovely to see her reaction when she saw her friends there. I tell you, it’s the little things in life. Another reason that I also happen to love Salute besides their great Italian food, is the fact that they have gluten free options for the whole menu, all they have to do is substitute the glutenous pasta with a gluten free one made my De Cecco. I had to ask, it was that good. I ordered the Rose pasta: It had sweet sausage, mushrooms, and spinach in a light tomato cream sauce with gluten free ziti. I can’t tell you how delicious it was!
