  • Pasta pomodoro. But where is it from?

UPDATE: Our reader "SuperMegaChoad" was the first to guess this one correctly... the pasta dish in question came from Tavolo V in the Delmar Loop. We've gotten in touch to get him his prize. Go, Choad!

Original post follows....

"Pomodoro" is the Italian word for tomato -- a word that literally translates to "golden apple." And that makes Pasta Pomodoro one of the simplest options on any pasta menu. It typically involves olive oil, fresh tomatoes and basil. Sometimes, as in the preparation depicted above, it'll contain a soft cheese, like goat.

So where did we eat the plate of pasta in question? Could be any one of St. Louis' dozens of Italian restaurants, and we're not about to make things any easier by giving you a hint.

Simply study the photo and leave your best guess in the comments. If you give us the first correct answer, we'll give you $25 to Chinese Noodle Cafe (6138 Delmar; 314-725-9889).

Rules: To be eligible, you must leave a valid e-mail address (or Twitter handle or Facebook profile URL) in the comment-entry field. One guess per e-mail address. Employees of the restaurant in question and the Riverfront Times are not eligible.
