What is Your Pasta Passion?

Which pasta dish is your passion or favourite and what do you add to it or omit ?

Mine is, my Grandmom Margherite┤s Emilia Romagna Rag¨ Bolognese...

Lasagne ... For me, this is my " divino " ...

A touch of uncased piquant Italian sausage to the Rag˙ ... and Pecorino Fiore Sardo - D.O. Sardinia.

Look forward to your replies and ideas ...

Kindest and Happy Holidays,
Buona Pasquas,
Margaux Cintrano.

Rigatoni or maccheroni alla gricia.
Just first class guanciale (not pancetta), extra virgin olive oil and hot pepper, then pecorino cheese and black pepper.

You eat what you are

Oh, my! Do I have to choose? I love so many.

But if I had to come up with something, I'd have to say my Grandma Grillo's (from Sicily) lasagna. Nothing short of heaven on a plate. Takes quite a while to make it but it's well worth the time and trouble.

Clam sauce and linguini

Other than that, I'm not a pasta eater...but I'm hoping once the new toy arrives, I'll make "veggie" pasta dishes. I guess my mother's weekly spaghetti turned me off of pasta...

Rigatoni Carbonara. I love the simplicity and richness of the sauce.

Angel Hair or Vermicelli with butter. I like very little sauce on my pasta. If I do use it, just enough to keep the pasta from sticking together.

While I love pasta in many different ways a good arrabiata is wonderful.

But I tend to favor bold simple flavors.

My favorite pasta dishes these days aren't always Italian. DW and I been enjoying a lot of Southeast Asian noodle dishes.

Can't make that choice, too many from different cultures! Is spaetzel made with flour pasta? Margi, you have asked a question that I find impossible to answer!

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
