Pasta Party

Appears in the October 2018 issue.

Did you know that eating pasta makes you happier? The carbohydrates in pasta increase the body’s production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that triggers feelings of happiness and well-being. So indulge this month on National Pasta Day, October 17. To celebrate, Francesca’s Restaurant Group is offering five dishes—Linguine al Fagottaro, Fettuccine al Funghetto, Rigatoni alle Verdure, Rigatoni con Scarola, and Ravioli con Carciofi—for just $12.95 each at all of its locations, including St. Charles, Elmhurst, and Naperville.
