PASTASCIUTTA ..........


Pastasciutta is the Italian word for the countless, delicious pasta and sauce dishes that Neapolitans love so much.....



..... and I absolutely love it too !!!!



I could eat it everyday but restrict it to once a week .



I'm afraid that I never make my own pasta but that's not laziness .... I actually prefer dried pasta to fresh but .....




but, if Natalio here would like to come round and persuade me otherwise and give me a few lessons ..... !!!!!!!!



I read somewhere that Italians only make pasta for special occasions but perhaps my Italian blogging friend Maria who comments here can tell us if that's true or not.




I really don't mind what sauce is on it ..... it can be a simple fresh tomato sauce, primavera, vongole, bolognaise, lemon artichoke, cheese, alfredo, puttanesca, carbonara ..... whatever it is, I'll eat it !!!! My trouble is, I always cook enough pasta to feed the entire street !! ...... and, it's usually quicker to make a pasta sauce than to order a take-away.





caramelised onion and roasted garlic .........



garlic butter with spinach and Parmesan .....



You can even have brussel sprouts on it !!!!!!





I also love fish but that's another story !!!!

What's your favourite pasta sauce or favourite food ?
