Let’s hear your favourite pasta dish

Hey guys

I’ve been looking through and see different people with various ideas when it comes to cooking. So I thought it’d cool to hear everyone’s favourite pasta dish. Everyone has one whether it be classic or new a full dish like baked lasagna or a stovetop one pot wonder. So simple or complex share them. (KD, sidekicks,etc. Not allowed here lol).

One of my favourites has to be Mac and cheese.
I boil the noodles then in a casserole dish I mix:
cooked noodles
milk
Cheddar cheese
Motzarella cheese
Queso sauce
Finely chopped onion
Finely chopped garlic
Finely chopped jalapeño pepper
Oregano

I have added
Chopped sausage
Stewing beef
Hamburg
Chicken
Turkey
Broccoli
Cauliflower

Etc and so on but as a side not a casserole it works out pretty good.
Note: careful if you use thyme as a herb if you add too much it over powers dish and can lose it's awesomeness.

At the moment my favourite soup is a good Pasta e Fagioli - pasta and beans. Lovely and warming. I have terracotta pots in all sizes, they go on the hob, and also in the oven and are resistent to open fires. This soup is beloved of Romans. I remember when I was a student at Rome University, they had military service. We all gathered together the night before departure for 18 months of army training. We would invariably go somewhere that did good Pasta e Fagioli. It's great in winter:

For 4 people

500/600g (1/14 pounds)
plenty of chopped fresh onions, garlic - must be fresh - and celery.
lardons of bacon, plain or smoked.
Enough plum tomatoes to colour the soup sort of orangey, but not deep red, squashed, enough to leave little bits floating around
3 - 4 oz smoked bacon lardons, or plain.
Ditalini - mustn't be large pieces of pasta. Broke up tagliatelle also go well.

fry off the vegetables and bacon, add the tomatoes, a stock cube, add the stock you made, and at the last minute throw in the pasta. Don't make too much because the pasta, after a period of time, is no good. Or make the soup in advance without the pasta, and add towards the end of cooking.

di reston


Enough is never as good as a feast Oscar Wilde

Chop the vegetables and throw them in the pot, sizzle them along with

I can't pin down a single favorite. So off the top of my head:

Pasta Primavera
Carbonara with guanciale or pancetta
Most any kind of ravioli or stuffed pasta
Penne alla vodka
Homemade spinach pasta w/sweet onion sauce
Most Asian noodle dishes

I like pasta primavera made with either a garlic/oil sauce, pesto sauce or an alfredo sauce. The reason I like so much is it's easy to put together with anything, pasta types can vary, and usually quick together with a combo of both cooked and raw veggies, and just about any protein.

I like baked rigatoni, with a lot of cheese on top,, and esp if a meat sauce include some chunky Italian sausage. Sometimes I skip the tomato sauce and make a cream sauce with sausage nstead.

I forget the name of the dish that includes bacon, and peas and not much else but I like it.

I like American Chop Suey, aka Am goulash aka Johnny Marzetti. My special adds to it is corn, or green beans, and I guess mushrooms, since I don't always have these in the house.

Sesame noodles is good, especially in the summer, as it can be served as a cold side dish.

I like a fairly plain alfredo sauce, usually add chicken or broccoli.

I have a hard time deciding a favorite pasta, too. There are so many ways to use pasta to make really good meals. I love a good carbonara -- it is an occasional treat I indulge in. I love a good lasagna, too. On the other hand, I like a good pasta salad with tuna. Or, just a simple spaghetti tossed in some garlic, basil and red chilis sautéed in olive oil. I like raviolis of many kinds, too.

See what I mean? I can't pick one favorite.

Count me out. I don't eat pasta. I know, one of the odd people. When I did eat pasta, lasagne.
