Feeding the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” crew

Ciao! met chow today as a crew from Joeseppi’s Italian Ristorante – a popular North Tacoma restaurant – loaded up enough pasta to feed a few hundred construction workers who are building a home in Kirkland.

The building project will be featured in January on the ABC TV program “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

This is the third time this week that Joe Stortini, owner of Joeseppi’s, has donated food to the crew of between 300 and 500 builders.

“You give to the community, and it gives back,” he said.

The menu? Two pastas (tortellini and penne – or, in this case, penne-ington); three sauces (alfredo, red meat and tomato cream); meatballs; sausage sauteed with onions and peppers; salad; and bread.

“It’s a rewarding thing to do,” Stortini said.

The show will air in January, and Stortini has invited the production crew to Joeseppi’s.
