On Wednesday, October 17, Denverites are invited to celebrate National Pasta Day with a true celebration of pasta: All day long, it will be buy-one-get-one FREE pasta at all five Mici Handcrafted Italian locations, including its newest outpost in Lafayette.
Mici’s handcrafted pasta sauces are made from treasured family recipes passed down through the Miceli family for generations.
The house-recipe Marinara sauce is a favorite on its own and is the base for the Amatriciana (Penne pasta with marinara sauce, pancetta, onion and crushed red pepper); the Rosa (Penne pasta with marinara sauce and a touch of cream); and the Cortonese (Penne pasta with Tuscan meat sauce).
House-made Meatballs, creamy Tortelini alla Miceli, hearty Lasagna, and creamy Pesto round out the menu.
Pastas are served perfectly al dente with garlic bread; diners have the option of adding house-made sausage or hormone-free chicken for $2.50; a family-recipe meatball for $3; or a small Insalata Mista or Insalata di Cesare for $3.50.
