Back In Time At Mr. Joe’s
Adam Erace sits down across the street from Termini’s to have an old fashioned Italian meal at the Termini family’s restaurant Mr. Joe’s. And of course he has a cannoli.
Tossed in crushed marinara, feathery ricotta gnocchi are no bigger than gumdrops, while hunks of spicy pork sausage cling to the ridges and hollows of tubular rigatoni. In nests slicked with green extra-virgin olive oil, toothsome pappardelle ribbons tangle with sauteed button, shiitake and portabella mushrooms.
Pasta fagioli satisfies with chickpeas and creamy cannellini beans. String beans and potatoes are simmered in marinara until almost falling apart, creating a robust, nourishing stew.
