Where to Get Free Pasta on National Pasta Day 2019

National Pasta Day is Thursday, October 17. It reminds me of a charming Salon interview with a man who sucked the marrow out of a seven-week Olive Garden pasta pass. “If I could say I collected $1,800 in Olive Garden meals, that is big. I don’t know what city you’re in or anything, but in rural North Carolina, that’s…Read more...

Drinking straws that are made of pasta

Do we really hate paper straws so much that drinking through pasta seems reasonable? Apparently so! Because here are Italian-made Stroodles. Their selling points: They're edible, vegan, made for cold drinks, have a shelf life of three years, and don't get soggy. Just don't give them to someone with celiac disease -- these are wheat! If pasta isn't your thing, try these straws made of rice, hay, sugar cane, bamboo, ice, or metal. I guess the message is, "leave plastic straws behind." (Geekologi...

Pasta Bolognese

A while back I made Meatballs Subs because I had a craving. They’re not that difficult to make and when you make them at home, you can use better ingredients than the versions you get elsewhere. Fortunately, there’s good bread in France and no shortage of cheese. And meatballs aren’t much of a challenge to make either. (Interestingly, a few weeks after I posted that recipe, an American woman living in Paris came up to me and said, “I don’t know how you knew, but I was craving the exact same thi...

Imperfect Pasta is the Secret to Perfect Pasta Salad

Like other entries in the “carbs coated in mayo” category of side dishes, pasta salad is incredibly polarizing. When it’s good, I can’t stop eating it; when it’s bad, it’s inedible. I’ve found that the secret to really good pasta salad isn’t homemade mayo or a good jar of pickles—it’s really bad pasta. Specifically,…Read more...

Should You Cut Your Spaghetti With Kitchen Shears?

There is a thing about me that I’m not particularly proud of, and it is this: I cannot eat spaghetti without first cutting the noodles. Well, I guess I could, but let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Which makes me a disgrace to pasta-lovers everywhere, I know.Read more...

How I learned to make Sunday sauce from my huge Jersey family

I’m reaching way back to the earliest memories of my youth, to the first pasta accompaniment I ever knew and loved: Sunday sauce. Back then that’s not what we called it, at least in my family. It was just sauce. My immediate family wasn’t on the “gravy” train—which was odd because that’s what my maternal grandmother…Read more...

"He ordered a $9.50 dish of homemade lasagna and $10 penne alla vodka with grilled chicken, along with two Snapples at $1.50 apiece to wash it all down."

It's Anthony Weiner, half free now, and never to be free of the jokes about his name"'Hold on a second here. Hold on a second. They’re in here?' Weiner grilled the deliveryman around 2 p.m. after he was handed a large pizza box and brown paper bag with straws poking out at the door of the GEO Care Inc., facility in Fordham Heights."I guess "in here" and "straws poking out" are additional penis jokes."After grabbing his food, Weiner couldn’t beat it fast enough."

Is it sauce or gravy? The answer

Americans love Italian food . They love the ubiquitous foods like pizza, pasta, and lasagna, and they even love the harder to find traditional Italian meat dishes like brassato and cotoletta alla milanese. You can find Italian food in every corner of the country, each region with its own slight differences (consider, if you will, the many types of regional pizza styles in the US). No difference has such staunch defenders, however, as the Italian food debate that has nothing to do with the actu...

Creamy Sage Pasta Sauce (Non-Dairy!)

I can’t count how many times it’s been less than an hour until dinner time and I’m frantically looking through our cabinets with no idea what we are going to have. Sometimes that frenetic pace results in something that’s just barely edible, but other times it’s lead to some of our favorite meals! I knew we had pasta the other night but not a whole lot else, so I set out to make a non-dairy cream sauce that would be good with some leftover sausage and peas I dug out of the freezer. The results w...

Of pasta and patents

According to the Encyclopedia of Pasta, there are hundreds of pasta shapes. At Smithsonian, Elizabeth Chu and D. Lawrence Tarazano of the US Patent Office look at relatively recent machinery to crank out the floury forms. From Smithsonian: The various shapes can be categorized based on the means by which they are formed: by hand, rolled into sheets, or extruded. For each pasta making method, there have been a number of inventions to ease and mechanize the process. Pastas formed by hand have...
