Pasta, for many, is a comfort food. It’s warm, it’s saucy, it can be rich and creamy, garlicky and herbaceous, and always delicious. Whether tonight is a date night, in, or you’re just in the mood for a pasta party, it’s always fun to set the ambiance. And by that, we mean recreating the mood of your fave red sauce joint, including the soundtrack. So mix up a Negroni – while your bottle of red opens up–, order some Penne Alla Vodka, chicken parm, and whatever other classic Italian delights you’re craving, and get this playlist going.
