As part of their launch of a brand new menu, Jamie's Italian is offering you the opportunity to taste a pasta dish for $10 in May 2017. A different pasta dish is on offer for each week of the month.

Week 1 – Spicy Sausage Fusilli

Week 2 – Silky Spaghetti Carbonara

Week 3 – Fusilli Arrabbiata

Week 4 – Truffle Tagliatelle

Great for those who like something a bit spicy, the Spicy Sausage Fusilli features a generous amount of the pork sausage known as Quattro Stelle 'nduja. This sausage has a moreish smoky flavour, which along with the chilli gave the dish its spicy hit. A scattering of shaved Parmesan cheese over the pasta helped to balance out the spiciness a bit.

One of the two non-spicy pasta dishes offered during the event, the carbonara sauce was not too creamy. A bit of crispness and smoky flavour was provided by the pancetta. The addition of leeks added an extra element of flavour. To best enjoy the dish, it is advisable to give the pasta a good toss to mix the sauce into it.

Making use of Scotch Bonnet peppers, the Fusilli Arrabiata also had a bit of heat but the type of heat was not the same as that of the Spicy Sausage Fusilli. The use of vegetarian Parmesan as opposed to the regular variety made this dish an excellent choice for vegans.

We have not tried Truffle Tagliatelle yet so we will probably head there in week 4 to give it a go. Bon Appetit!

Hi Jonathan, when you say "The use of vegetarian Parmesan made this dish an excellent choice for vegans", could you be a bit more clear? Do Jamie's Italian use vegan parmesan?
