10 Lip-Smacking Pasta Recipes
I read this somewhere that, “As long as there is Pasta & Chinese food in the world; I am ok to live in it.” I think life is a wonderful combination of Magic and Pasta. And there are so many varieties of Pasta, Magic happens when you mix the right sauce with the right kind of a pasta.
– Spaghetti goes very well with creamy sauce like Pesto or White Sauce. Mouthwatering, right?
– Penne Pasta on the other hand are best for any chunkey sauce such as Marinara sauce. Basically the ingredients get stuffed in between pasta.Feeling the taste in my mouth already.
– Fusilli Pasta as long as I remember enjoying these, it has always been the core of Pasta Salad. As dressing sticks to the sidewalls of this pasta and it’s easy to have with fork or spoon.
– Farfalle Pasta is best suited for Mac & Cheese. My daughter loves it.
A lot of viewers get confused between pasta and noodles. They are both very different. Pasta is usually made from unleavened dough made from wheat flour mixed with water or eggs and formed into leaves or other shapes and then processed by boiling or baking. Rice flour or legumes such as beans or lentils are sometimes used to substitute for wheat flour for a different taste and texture or as a gluten-free alternative. Whereas Noodles are made from unleavened dough which is rolled flat and cut, stretched or extruded, into long strips or strings. Also, noodles generally contain salt, added to develop the softer protein and help bind the dough, whilst pasta is mostly salt-free.
As a staple food in Italian cuisine, both dry and fresh pasta are classically used in three types of prepared dishes. As pasta asciutta (or pastasciutta), cooked pasta is covered and served with additional sauces or seasonings. The second classification of pasta dishes is pasta in brodo, where pasta is part of a soup dish. The third category is pasta al Forno, where the pasta is put into a dish which is then baked. Using these very principles, I have made the Pasta Recipe collection for you. Go ahead and enjoy.
