homecook, i'm sure kadesma means to pour over cooked pasta. all pasta is made "fresh" or in a soft state, but then to make it last longer it can be dried. both have to be cooked/boiled to eat.
well, except for a specific kind of dry pasta called "no-boil". that cooks by absorbing liquid from surrounding ingredients such as a sauce.
