Talk about your carb-loading lunch, I had an open face ravioli sand at the Pasta Bar in the Market today. Tender pasta pockets filled with a mix of ground beef and Italian sausage gently laid on toasted garlic bread that's drizzled with a little pesto and some marinara. A little shredded mozz on top, bang into the hot oven. (Just like Quizno's, I ribbed owner Brian LoPriore... who sings along with Frank Sinatra songs while he works. Yeah, he says, but except we got flavor!)
It's not on the menu because it's a pain to make, but it's awfully darned tasty. You can find the Pasta Bar next door to Pike Place Chowder.
