Mirko Pasta Now Open in Owensboro

I love food.  I especially love Italian food.  And I love any chance I get to eat somewhere new.  So, Friday night, I dropped by the brand new Mirko Pasta location at Wesleyan Park Plaza here in Owensboro to give it a try.  Oh my goodness.  I love pasta anyway.  But at Mirko all the pastas and sauces are handmade.  I had apple, sage and sausage ravioli with pesto sauce and it was ridonkulous!   In fact, I'm not sure how you say "ridonkulous" in Italian, but I may have to figure it out now .  So, what is Mirko Pasta and where did it come from?  Honestly, before the sign went up at the Owensboro location, I had never even heard of it.  So, I did some digging and found out a little history about Mirko.  Check it out!
