Ravioli Festival at Alfredo Aiello Italian Foods in Norwell, MA

Ravioli Festival!  It’s a real thing.  So excited to share this fun New England festival I found out about today with you- we’ll get to it in a minute.

I had a super productive morning away from the wee one and it was so nice to have a minute to listen to NPR and zone.  My father in law came over to watch Sam this morning, so I could get my hair cut and run some errands.  My first stop was Super Cuts- just a trim, but nice to be a little less shaggy.  Then I hit up the liquor store and bought two bottles of red wine: Apothic Red and Gnarly Head  Cabernet Sauvignon.  Cannot wait to open one tonight- love bold red wines.

My next stop was Alfredo Aiello Italian Foods in Norwell.  I was there to pick up some prosciutto for our Friday night Pizza Night ritual.  Tonight’s pie is inspired by Bertucci’s arugula, prosciutto, and balsamic pizza.  Yum!  I know you can find prosciutto at Hannaford’s or Trader Joe’s, but I went to Alfredo’s because you can buy it in whatever quantity you want and the quality is excellent.

I bought 1/8 of a pound of prosciutto which only cost $1.90 so I decided I had some room in the budget for a few more treats.  Olives, fresh Italian bread, and tomato paste in a tube made their way into my basket.  Prosciutto Olives Bread from Alfredos in Norwell MA |

Tomato paste in a tube is SO helpful.  I hate those little cans- no one ever needs 1/4 cup of tomato paste at a time.  Holy tomato flavor!  With the tube, you can just squeeze out what you need and throw it back in the fridge.  Amazing!

But I digress.  While I was there, I saw them setting up a large tent outside and saw a sign on the door- Ravioli Festival tomorrow!  It’s like they knew I was coming in today.
