    In honor of National Pasta Month, Martorano’s Italian restaurant at Rio Las Vegas is serving up special menu items each week in October featuring nature’s perfect food. Yes, pasta. And, yes, it’s perfect.

    Because of this blog’s ongoing dedication to your culinary bliss while in Las Vegas, we forced ourselves to try all the specials to make sure you’ll love them. Conclusion: We’re confident you will.

    The restaurant’s celebrity chef, muscleman Steve Martorano, has concocted four powerhouse dishes, including the item pictured above (featured through Oct. 7), with traditional tubetti pasta and fresh San Marzano tomatoes, peas, onions and a Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese ($18).

    For the week of Oct. 8-14, Martorano’s will serve a dish (see below) with Bucatini and cauliflower, combined with pistachios, raisins and fresh garlic, topped with toasted Italian bread crumbs and extra virgin olive oil ($25). Side note: Do you realize how difficult it is to find virgin olive oil in Sin City? We’re just saying.
