Pasta like a Pro

Saying this recipe is better than our Nonna’s would be a bad idea, but she’ll never know if we just think it…

When you need a delicious and healthy pasta for friends or the family, try this: warm olives, wilted greens, fresh parmigiano and a dash of chili oil for flavour. Buon Appetito!

Spaghetti with Warm Olives and Arugula 2 tbsp olive oil 1 small yellow onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, chopped fine 1/4 cup of white wine Prima Strada mixed olives 500 g dried spaghetti 1 generous handful of arugula Prima Strada chili oil, to taste 1 lemon, zest chunk of parmigiano Salt & Pepper, to taste

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add onion, stirring often until softened, then add the garlic until it just starts to colour. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling salted water (it should taste like the sea!). Depending on the brand, around 8 minutes or al dente.

Pizza Secrets

Every good restaurant has a secret menu with tips, tricks and modifications to enhance the meal. When it comes to pizza in Victoria, we’re no exception. We call them game changers. Over the years, we’ve seen our wood-fired pizza classics revamped with a modification or two that have become weekly staples.

A few of our favourites we’re excited to share with you – Buon appetito!

Margherita pizza… add house mixed olives (warm blistery olives are delicious!) Filetti pizza… add a meat (prosciutto, house sausage, house smoked ham or house pepperoni) Diavola… add pesto drizzle + ricotta (no surprises here – DeCarolis/Dallas family favourite) Margherita… minus cheese, add mushrooms, onions, peppers, olives (vegan classic!) Any pizza… add an egg on top (all time favourite brunch choice)

If you have a new tip to share, we’d love to hear it.  Better yet, tag us #lovemyprimastrada with your next creation! Grazie mille!

Peach Spritz

These days it’s all about the spritz. And there’s nothing wrong with Aperol Spritz or the Campari Spritz (classics for a reason) but every now and again we crave something new, bubbly and fun. We’re digging local BC fruit right now and Maggie has developed a feature patio sipper we know you’ll love. Find it at Prima Strada Fort Street or make it at home!

Base + bubbles + more bubbles + garnish = crowd pleaser

Pinot Grigio Peach Spritz 2 oz Pinot Grigio (or any white wine) 1.5 oz peach syrup * 1/2 oz lemon 3 fresh mint leaves Soda Shaken on ice, strained over fresh ice, top with soda, garnish with lemon wheel or a fresh peach slice! *Make your own peach syrup! Local peaches are in! Peach Syrup 700 ml water 500 ml sugar 300g fresh, pitted & quartered peaches (or frozen) Bring to a boil on high heat, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20 minutes. Fine strain & let cool. Refrigerate for 1 week.

See you for pizza in Victoria or Cowichan! Cin cin to you and yours at the next family gathering!

Wine night at Prima Strada
Pizza and Wine Night with Averill Creek

Free wine sample!

Join Prima Strada Cook Street on July 24 and Prima Strada Fort Street on July 25 for pizza and a free sample of Averill Creek‘s newest wine, JOUE. Averill Creek wine maker Brent will be onsite between 5pm – 7pm to tell us about the vino but more importantly show off and let us taste his newest creation. PPS’ Executive Chef Franz has put together a fantastico pizza and wine pairing which we know you’ll love.

Pizza and wine go together like tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Pizza would not be the same without these simple ingredients. Fact. That’s how we feel about our friends at Averill Creek and their newest wine.

Our friendship with local Cowichan winery, Averill Creek Vineyard is something special. So special that we’re getting an exclusive sneak peek at their newest wines…and we’re sampling with you!

No tickets needed.

When/Where:

July 24 at PPS Cook Street 5pm – 7pm July 25 at PPS Fort Street 5pm – 7pm
