Once it hits my plate its mine
A food mutilator posts among us. Apparently more than one.
If you're going that far why not just overcook the pasta, smash it multiple times and serve it as mashed papastas. It might be good with gravy or creamed corn.
Oh the humanity!
Wait......Could we have been trolled by a pair of scissors?
too funny..I hear you Paisan ..at my age, everything I eat, is a child's portion.
I learned to eat spaghetti properly (with a fork, no spoon) without making a mess by the time I was 5. I have zero sympathy for your "issue" and suspect there may be others as well.
Funny thing is - I have no Italian ancestry, but if you grow up around Philly you learn how to eat spaghetti and if you do it wrong you'll hear about it.
I now have an urge to go to Ralph's on 9th street with giant pair of ceremonial scissors, but I couldn't keep a straight face.
Thank You for the humor this morning. I am 1/2 Italian, and learned early to eat spaghetti with a fork and spoon, twirl it baby. I could actually see you being asked to leave a fine Italian dining establishment, or a mom and pop shop.
The truth, as much as it hurts is you can eat however you feel comfortable.
I'm just chiming in here as it's just a good place to say just how amazing my wife's pasta ( ziti, linguini, rigatoni
Her homemade sauces ( marina, alfredo, or pink cream/tomato, or scampi), AND her meatballs are too good - 40 years now!
We are both of Italian descent, and she just has that 'gene' that makes.great I talian food ( I'll call it Italian- American)
She does have a homemade pasta maker, but usually boxed, and she will incorporate store/jar Italian red sauce into her homemade, but man, her Italian repertoire is delicious- lucky guy!
I was born, and raised in Pittsburgh. I am Italian. Back in the days you make an Italian lady mad, she would beat you with wooden spoon, over your forehead. Now they just laugh, and make you meatballs.
Making a marinara tonight. good timing
with Cento San Marzano and button shrooms.
Yes. Go eat pasta. Use these in good health.
When you have young kids you quickly learn to break the noodles in 1/3rds before boiling. It's easy to do then. And then you know it's just easier all the time. If the spaghetti companies boxed up short spaghetti they might increase sales.
Spaghetti generally has a higher sauce to flour ratio than other noodles. Especially if you dope the sauce with other contaminants* like green pepper, hamburger, and so on.
*When I was in my 30s I worked with a couple of guys near retirement that always joked about having to add contaminants to their coffee. So I am passing that philosophy along.
As a kid, my next-door neighbor’s mom would fix us frozen pizzas for a quick lunch. She would take it out of the oven and cut the pizza with a pair of scissors.
One of my other friends and I carried this observation back to my house. Decades later, my mom and I still refer to scissors as “pizza scissors” sometimes.
Good call !!
I myself have, respectfully, not too terribly much sympathy for you on this.
You know if you had rigatoni #21 you don't have to worry about it.
...And, when chopping onions for your sauce, wear a diving mask and snorkel - no more tears!
No problem..Wife takes care of it....
Just don't cut your tongue.
