i'm not sure there is
speaking of which, pasta is fucking awesome - it comes in all sorts of forms and you can have it with/under/on top of practically anything.
but it actually tastes kind of disgusting. you have to smother it in sauce to not taste it and even then the texture is kind of gross and weird.
i will tolerate spaghetti but that's it
bit of salt in the water when you cook it, sometimes olive oil and presto! Yummy pasta.
and then i realised it's actually really good. for cheap cooking anyway, i'm still reluctant to order it in a restaurant
but people who say for example that pasta's better than rice are about as wrong as it gets
i get that pasta is cheap and filling but rice is cheaper and the potential in rice far exceeds the potential in pasta
and so depressing (eating countless bowls of tasteless tortellini at Uni)
it's definitely up there
pasta can be amazing and it can be shite, depends what kind doesn't it. if you have pasta from a good cook, then it's probably going to be good. not much can beat a truly great pasta.
thanks a lot
