Guide To Pasta

14 May

Some helpful hints to successfully getting the most from your pasta experience.

Tip #1

Pasta tastes much better if it’s cooked. You can eat it raw, but it will be very crunchy. If you go the raw route, I suggest using a red sauce.

Tip #2

If you decide to cook your pasta, do not glue it in the shape of a sun on a piece of construction paper first. If you go with the glued pasta make sure it’s a non toxic glue.

Tip #3

Pasta is very versatile. It can be used as either a main entree or as a side dish. I would not recommend using it as both in the same meal. Example: Spaghetti and Meatballs with a side of Macaroni and Cheese would be a bad combination.

Tip #4

After cooking the pasta, be sure to drain the water off before adding any type of sauce.

Tip #5

There are many types and shapes of pasta. Here is my guide know which is which:


Macaroni (no cheese)

This is a picture of Macaroni having sex. I didn’t mean to include this picture. It’s from my personal pasta porn collection. Sorry, but hey grow up…where do you think pasta comes from?

Tubes or Tubey or Tubies. If one of your friends calls them Penne then they are just being pretentious.

Multi-colored Rotini. Don’t eat the green ones, the have turned bad and are spoiled.

Bowtie Pasta


Mini Ravioli

Yum! Enjoy!

    I had a roommate years ago who made her boyfriend a baked potato with egg noodles for dinner and no, nope she didn’t cook the egg noodles.
    Great post, you should have a cooking blog.

      Yuck! Crunchy! My cooking blog would go something like this:
      1 – Open microwave door
      2 – Peel up one corner of box
      3 – Pretend your diffusing a bomb and open microwave door one second before microwave beeps.

      It would not be very helpful I think.
