Oh the poor fool who went on
the no carb diet!! He obviously never had a wonderful
plate of pasta! I'm told there are over 500 different
types of pasta in Italy! How could any good Italian, or
Italiophile, deny themselves!
The funny thing about pastas
is that for the most part, they're all made of exactly
the same ingredients--- and yet not every form of pasta
works every sauce. It's all about shape, texture, size
and of course the accompanying sauce. For example Spaghetti
Aglio e Olio-is a simple sauce of garlic, olive oil and
chili and it's the perfect partner for spaghetti. I couldn't
imagine using penne for this. If you only have penne,
don't make aglio e olio! Try a simple tomato sauce instead.
