“Mezzanotte” in Italian means midnight. This is the name of this pasta pot, but you should ask: “why?”
Quick info about its size: this pot has a width of 9.5 inches and a height of 5.5 inches. The pasta insert, when in use, adds about 2 inches to its height.
Us Italians have a habit, which some might consider strange, but if you are part of my tribe, you must understand that at the Stellino’s, a plate of midnight pasta is a thing… especially during Covid. This unusual dieting habit has expanded my waist and given me enormous joy over the past challenging years we all have had.
But why this pot? You should ask.
It is the perfect pasta pot. It’s large enough to cook a whole pound of pasta, it is coated with a fabulous nonstick coating, and it is as light as a feather.
When it came to midnight pasta, no other pot would do. She was always my go-to pot!
Even as I am writing this, I wonder if I really want to part ways with Mezzanotte. Then I look at 4 of my closets in the kitchen, the garage, and two storage places, all filled with pots and pans, and it becomes evident that…I might have an obsession with pots and pans.
Mezzanotte is absolutely delightful, especially for those of you who like strong, efficient, sturdy, and professional pots that you can lift with just one hand.
This pot is fearless, imbued with plenty of my smiles. Think of my face smiling as I eat pasta with Nanci in the middle of the night!
I hope Mezzanotte will find a home full of joy and cooking ambition. I look for Mezzanotte to bring huge smiles to the faces of the family that will cook with this. Who knows, pretty soon you too will talk with a bit of an Italian accent😊 .
