On Special - Casonsei

With the cooler weather slowly creeping in we 
decided to change the menu around a little to
accommodate the soon to be changing appetites. Our diets will change from craving salads and lighter entrees to something a little more hardy. And in the meantime, we've got a dish that will help you transition perfectly!

Starting this lineup is our Casonsei. 
Casonsei (or casoncelli from the italian dialect) Originating from the Lombardy region in the north-central region of italy this dish is famous in the region as being a "fall" entree.  We start by taking 4 cheese raviolis and browning them slightly before we top it with a white wine cream sauce that is sauteed with fresh tomatoes and italian sausage.  This isn't just any plain, generic, italian sausage. Our chefs spend time meticulously hand grinding pork with the perfect amount of spices for a sausage that is truly unforgettable.   

It's not too light, but not too heavy and it's perfect for a cool night on the patio (for however many days we have left).  We know, we're all dreading the cold that Midwestern winters can bring, but the Uptown can help make that transition with this italian entree and you won't even be thinking about the weather.
