Pasta Dinner for 4 - Choose Your Own

Take your pick from a selection of housemade pastas (bucatini, mafaldini, and creste de gallo) and homemade sauces (tomato basil; spicy, prosciutto-kicked amatriciana; and rich, traditional wild boar bolognese) and round out your meal by adding on harissa-marinated olives, Parmigiano-Reggiano, or Taleggio-stuffed focaccia!

Karen Akunowicz is one of Boston’s top chefs, in more ways than one: not only was she a fan favorite on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef All-Stars,” she also received the 2018 James Beard Award for Best Chef: Northeast for her work at Myers + Chang. In 2019 she opened a 75-seat enoteca called Fox & The Knife, which was named an “instant classic” by Food & Wine and was a finalist for “Best New Restaurant” at the 2020 James Beard Awards.

Kosher salt not included

More Details

This package serves 4 people and includes everything you need to make 4 pasta dinners:

  • 2 Pastas, your choice (each 1 lb.)
  • 2 Sauces, your choice (each 1 pt.)

The Chef Recommends:

  • Tomato Basil + Rigatoni – While this sauce sounds simple it has a depth and richness that I love. This is a workhorse sauce for me, and I use it for chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana and of course to sauce all of my favorite pastas. The sauce has a small amount of spice and a lot of basil, and a little caramelized butter so it is extra creamy.
  • Amatriciana + Bucatini – One of the most famous roman sauces, started with melted onions and garlic and lots of prosciutto, this tomato based sauce is spicy and smokey. Its a staff and customer favorite and the perfect pair for our bucatini.
  • Wild Boar Bolognese + Creste di Gallo – I spent a year living and working in Modena, Italy in the Emilia-Romagna region. I was a hop, skip and a jump (ok, really just a hop) from Bologna, the birthplace of bolognese. Sundays were my day off and I often spent them staging at different restaurants in the region, or traveling to Florence to sit on things and eat gelato. I staged at a restaurant in Bologna, where I learned how to make their bolognese, and this is the foundation of my dish here. My recipe is adapted to living in Boston and not Italy, and like many of my recipes, sneaks in an ingredient or two from my travels or proclivities.

Add-ons include:

  • Harissa Marinated Olives (8 oz.)
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano (8 oz.)

Everything was amazing! The pasta was so fresh and delicious. The wild boar was terrific. Best of all, I am allergic to tomato and don’t eat dairy, so finding a delicious pasta sauce is next to impossible and this one finally allowed me to enjoy pasta again!!! I will be reordering this for sure!!
Stacey S. - Daniel Island, SC
It was a birthday gift for a friend who loved it! Perfect for Covid, when we can’t celebrate together. Her boyfriend wants to start ordering these!

Our Fox & the Knife Dinner was delicious. I really liked the Bucatini with Amatriciana sauce. I would buy that sauce as a standalone if they sold it!
Colleen B. - Granite Bay, CA
Having access to a world class restaurant dinner, while stuck at home, was a real joy! Wild Boar Ragout is one of my husband's favorite dishes and this one was as good as any we had in Italy. The pasta they paired it with (Spinach Mafaldini) was a creative, delicious and fun choice. What we ordered was outstanding, and we hope to order this again. Thankful for this opportunity!

Amanda B. - Las Vegas, NV
My experience of Goldbelly, which has been extensive for myself, but mostly to send gifts, food gifts, to friends. The best. The very best. On a rare occasion there have been mishaps—delivered to the wrong address (I live in remote/rural america), didn’t get as much fish as I ordered—and always, with kindness and enthusiasm, the customer services has been delightful. Almost makes you want to have a problem, they are so good. Thank you.

Prompt service. Resolved the issue in a little over 24 hours. Sabrina was very personable and polite.
Frank M. - Niagara Falls, NY
The Pasta Bolognese from Fox & the Knife was superb! No tomato in the sauce and that fabulous cresto di gallo pasta made this an exciting, flavorful dish with a great ‘chew’. Just the right level of warmth to the spicing too. Chef Karen,, You Rock!!
