simple question, as mentioned in topic.

for me its not easy as there is a tons of good pasta dishes around, like x different lasagne, caneloni dishes, or a simple pasta with carbonara sauce, what is really important to add a lot of cheese (parmesano) and a nice side salad!

so whats your favourite pasta dish?

cheers

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Yep. Tomatoes, capers, chili peppers, olives, garlic, anchovies on top of some tuna and spaghetti. What's not to love?

So difficult to choose as I LOVE pasta, but a really good bolognese is always quite nice (I make a killer turkey bolognese  Smile), pasta with homemade pesto is another favorite. I tend to experiment with pastas and sauces and have come up with some pretty good combos over the years. One of my favorite creations is a tuna sauce with capers, lemon, white wine, salt/pepper, and thyme.

Well, if I ate always the same I would not like it anymore, so I haven't a favorite really. But I guess the one I eat the most often (because it's quick to make and doesn't use fresh ingredients) is penne al pesto alla genovese, with the Barilla sauce and Barilla pasta.

My mother makes a really good lasagna, red or green.

A quick and dirty spaghetti alla carbonara is also great.

But really what I like is the diversity, and with my family in Italy I'm often surprised.

My favorite is vermicelli with a good, simple marinara sauce and lots of fresh parmesan on top. Add a sliced-up grilled chicken breast and some lightly steamed vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrots, and mushrooms) and you've got a full meal that won't make you immobile for the rest of the day.

A simple Bolognese will do fine for me, so long as it's done the traditional way. There have been some shocking examples, even from supposedly 'Italian' cafes, but I'd say that a good Italian cafe should always be able to make a good Bolognese. If they can't manage such a simple dish, then what chance do they have of dishing up something a bit more complex?

Lasagne for me. I make a wicked lasagne. I made it for one of my friends a few weeks ago and she loved it so much she went back for a large second helping. A week later she went to an Italian restaurant and she ordered lasagne, but couldn't eat it as it was nothing like mine. This is coming from an Indian woman who I got praise from for making a curry for her so it must have been good.

They call that Cincinatti Chili. Good stuff.  

Of course, they tend to throw on more than just noodles.

I owuld walk a mile for:

Black Linguine: Mezzaluna in NYC. They introduced the dish to NY, and possibly the US.

Paglia e Fieno with prosciutto and peas in a cream sauce: Il Cortile, Little Italy, NYC.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce: Calabria: Ottawa, CA. The meat sauce is light with the sweetness of non-overcooked tomatoes.

Lasagna: Villa Verde, Addis Ababa.

Italian cuisine, like Indian and Chinese cuisine, is best eaten at hole-in-the-wall places.

Most Bolognese sauces where I live are too thick, garlicky and tomatoey. Despicable!

For me, it has to be Rigatoni as the tubes hold the sauce much better. And of course the sauce is my own completely home-made with lean ground beef, tomatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms, basil, garlic and some red cooking wine. Let it cook and simmer for several hours so all the flavours blend nicely.

And of course, a nice Chianti, some garlic bread, and a cool crisp mixed salad to go with it.

Ahhhhhhh...........

With steamed veggies....mmmmmm.

There's a resturaunt in old Ventura named "Fiore" that makes a butternut squash ravioli to die for.

My #1 choice would be the Gnocci @ "Vivo" on Randolph St. in Chicago. It's like the crack cocaine of pasta. It's one of the big reasons that I love Chicago.
This is me last July about to get my annual fix @ Vivo.

Mostly, just a simple red sauce cooked all day and poured over spaghetti or ziti.

But I'll take a putanesca any day of the week.

Linguine and mussels, garlic and white wine is awfully good too.

Chicken, artichoke, and alfredo penne. It's amazing! I also love tortellini soup, but it's not necessarily a pasta "dish" per se.

But, then again, you can't really go wrong with pasta. I don't think I've met a pasta dish I didn't like!
