Worst and best pasta?

Postby T-boy on Tue Apr 24, 2007 2:31 pm

Which is the worst and the best pasta, in your opinion?

For me, Italian Pasta is the best (but I am Italian so this is a bit selfish to say). Here we eat it almost once at day! Arr, envy me!!!

And I think the worst one is English Pasta. It has the consistance of glue and tastes really bad. Also, it was once served to me with bread! You can't eat pasta with bread!!!

Also, I heard that some people cuts spaghetti with their forks while they eat them, but the more correct way to eat them is to turn your fork and make a spaghetti roll ("rotolino"), then eat it. It is kinda difficult to learn if you never did it, but it is very useful.

Sure, but if the bread become flesh, in some way,sub specie substantiae,breaking the ematballs to all the world, you can eat
spaghetti al ragù alla bolognese .
In the same way you can't cut strings with forks,m because strings do not have dimensions, you can to roll.
Anyway, welcome aboard.

If you use a spoon with the fork (which seems the etiquette method) it's much easier. Pick the spaghetti up with the fork, place the fork perpendicular to the spoon (the scoop bit), turn it so the spaghetti hangs toward the pronged end of the fork & twist. You have a perfect forkfull of spaghetti.

Very practial method of indulging in His Noodly Goodness. Works with most types of noodles that require some form of discipline in order to consume with a minimum of napkin abuse. Doesn't work with vermicelli though.

As for worst & best? That's like asking me who my favourite/least favourite band is. So many different styles that I can't decide (though I'm sure my least favourite pasta gives me much more satisfaction than my least least-favourite band).

Nella profonda e chiara sussistenza
dell'alto lume parvemi tre giri
si tre colori e d'una contenenza
e l'un da l'altro, come iri da iri,
parea riflesso, ed il terzo pare fuoco
che quinci e quindi igualmente si spiri
( Dante Alighieri, Pardiso, XXXIII,115-120 )

Babelfish translation:

In the deep and clear subsistence of the high lume parvemi three turns three colors and of a contenenza and from the other, like iri from iri, a reflected parea, and the third party seems fire igualmente that quinci and therefore coils.

Very poetic, but what's it mean?

Three colours. That would be vegeroni fettuccine, wouldn't it?

Yes, for sure.
But there are more ways to see three colours:
1) while eating spaghetti, if you give a stroke on the eye of the child near you, like children do,he can see 3 colours from 1 and 3 rounds
2) If you shoot the fork with spaghetti into the eye into the triangle of those money worshippers, you will see sheding tears of 3 colours, first because God said one cannot serve two masters, God & Mammona.
Second because Constitution of USA, article 1,section 8, number 5:the Congress shall have the power to coin money,regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures
Third because , if the Congress send to us a racing letter, to shoot forks and spaghetti, we in Italy can see 3 colours too: white, red and green :worship:

NO, NO, NO. Eat spaghetti with a FORK only - put as much as possible into the mouth and fork the remaining strands in. Or, suck them in (if a child) (or, child-like).

Tonight for dinner I had pastina with onions, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper mixed in. It was pretty good.
