Triskaidekaphobia Lyrics (Barbuzzo Part 2.)

My second lunch at Barbuzzo brought a nice dish of pasta and the biggest surprise of the year for me dining so far.The legend of  how Strozzapreti pasta got its name has many variations. Stories of gluttonous priest and suspicions of adultery abound.  The "Priest Choker" pasta is simply an elongated Cavatelli. At Barbuzzo it receives a simple toss in olive oil with hen of the woods mushrooms, arugula and a lemon-walnut pesto. It is finished with a dollop of fresh ricotta and is really good.  The play of all the ingredients complimented each other in every bite. The true star of Barbuzzo however was on the dessert menu. I decided to try the Salted Caramel Budino on the recommendation of my server. I have not only developed a new "Fat Kid Food Crush", but found my favorite dessert in Philadelphia I have been hearing whispers of a standout ravioli dish on the dinner menu, so I may need another stop at Barbuzzo.
