i'm all over linguini at the mo.
NEVER mix it with beetroot tho, thats all i'm saying.
noodles ain't pasta
'Pasta (Italian for "dough") is a generic term for Italian variants of noodles'
THE NOODLE CAME BEFORE THA PASSTA
But a noodle isn't a pasta
Either that or you're greatly contradicting yourself.
no it's not. pasta is a type of noddle. ERGO 'egg noodles' are not necessarily pasta.
wow this argument is pedantic
Seems fine to me.
i wanna have squid ink pasta with a cheese sauce, cause it'd be pretty much black and white, and that'd be cool
nice and easy to cook too
if its specific to just the pasta, would you still say raviolli? i.e. it doesnt matter whats in it?
never ever the shells. they hate forks.
AND they all get stuck together, so you're always eating 3 at a time
or the shell one (what's it called?). You need grooves/pockets to pick up the most sauce. More sauce = more better.
i like gnocchi. Waaay to filling though.
it's potato flour. How was football?
but pretty good, someone got kicked in the face and the ref was a bit shite. todmorden lost. 3-1 to rochdale sacred heart.
but my head hurts like hell thanks to whiskey and wine.
is probably the best shape but you can't get it cheap so I tend to go with fusilli for reasonable sauce/pasta distribution
the bowties are hard to cook because the middle bit doesnt cook as quickly as the others and it isnt very nice to have crunchy bits in your otherwise normal cooked pasta.
goes well in pasta bake...
However, what would ever cause anyone to mix it with beetroot?
Like penne, but better.
If it's something fairly chunky then you need a pasta like conchigle, penne, or fusilli to scoop up the sauce. For a smoother sauce then something long like linguini. For pasta bakes I like orrechiette.
for some reason it just tastes better
Garfield was born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant (later revealed in the television special Garfield: His Nine Lives to be Mama Leoni's Italian Restaurant) and immediately ate all the pasta and lasagna in sight, thus developing a taste for lasagna.
"What Is The Best Form of Gangsta." I'm hell of disappointed that a) this isn't a straw poll on people's preferred organisers of crime and b) I appear to be unlearning how to read today.
For the record I'd have picked the Triads.
also deserving a mention - tagliatelle (sp)
extra thin spaghetti = WRONG
and i like the shells cos sometimes it acts as a bowl for the sauce :D
