So you're on buzzard's side in the pasta war?

If youíre not going to allow gnocchi then it seems odd that youíd allow tortellini, which is the same wheat flour base (pasta literally means paste) with other stuff added... is it the stage of preparation where the additional ingredients are added, that determine whether something is a pasta? Itís all getting a bit theoretical
Yes, I know we're moving into some esoteric territory here, but let us not be afraid to ask the tough questions.

I would say filling inside pasta shells has no bearing on pasta status. Lasagna is pasta regardless of the fact that you only eat it when it's stacked with sauce and cheese. Same thing with tortellini or other stuffed pastas.

But gnocchi has an ingredient which makes it fundamentally different from traditional pastas; potato. I guess what we're digging into here is whether or not pasta is defined by the ingredients or the process. Couscous is the same ingredients but different process, gnocchi is different ingredients, similar outcome.

he also knows a lot about the first age of middle-earth, which, contrary to what buzzard might think, is very impressive.

you certainly seem to care a great deal about "what buzzerd might think"

perhaps you should concentrate more on your own beliefs, and what the hell you're going to do on this first Catherine Passover

we made bucatini with lemony carbonara recently. tim accidentally tossed the reserve pasta water and it changed the sauce so we have to make it again before really deciding if it's a recipe worth making again.

Koshary (also called in a recipe "Egyptian lentil and rice pasta") is one of my favorites to make and eat, but it's labor intensive. I had it at a restaurant and loved it and havent' had it at a restaurant since.

Anyone mention polenta yet? I've only started eating it in the last couple years. v good underneath a mushroom ragu or the like. Is it even a pasta? Is it a pulse? ?

Last night I almost made orzo salad with kale, chickpeas, lemon and feta for dinner, but I had given Tim two dinners to choose from and he chose kale salad with toasted cajun chickpeas and a home-made buttermilk dressing. He also made a lentil soup last night for us to have during the week for lunches and a lazy dinner.

taglierini with bay scallops and meyer lemon. this was also a new one, but it's quite like other pasta except for the shape, which is true of most pasta. i love carbohydrates. and lemon, apparently.

YES.

Gnocchi sucks. It's little dough balls. I want sauce not dough.

Although I had some decent gnocchi for the first time in my life about a month ago but it doesn't change my opinion that gnocchi is mostly garbage.

Still it's the worst form of pasta.

Are you guys talking about store bought, pre-made, mass produced gnocchi? Or fresh, hand made?

i was personally talking about the fine, expensive gnocchi that one gets when flying first class, or enjoying a hot sun-bath on the bed of a yacht
