Place two or three strands between the tines on your fork. Lift it up and start to twirl. When the last strand has only a short bit hanging, place in mouth. You will have just enough for a mouthful each time.

i'm curious. do slurpers wear their napkin tucked into their collar goombah style? you know, to prevent the bits of sauce from being whiplashed around, and on to your shirt?

i twirl, sometimes sppon or bread assisted, but i bite off the danglers for the most part.

for the twirlers: do you finish with a slurp or bite?

A bite, but in a friendly setting I finish with a good old piece of bread to assimilate any sauce remaining on plate.

Since I don't eat bread, I want only a little sauce on my pasta. Just enough to make it pink. I would rather have sausage and meatballs that have finished their cooking in the gravy. Can you tell I am not Italian?

I grrew up in an Italian neighborhood. I was the only non-Italian. I watched all the Nonis' cooking and they taught me just enough gravy to keep the pasta from sticking. And that is the way I learned to eat it. The pasta in one big bowl, the meat on a big platter and the gravy in a big boat with a large ladle. And the Papa always got served first. The cook always sat down last. Mungia! Mungia!
