My favorite pasta was my Italian grandma's homemade pasta (and "gravy"): hand-rolled with her rolling pin, flat first, then rolled over like a jelly-roll, then sliced into 1/2 to 1/4 in strips.
The best part was then she deep fried the left-over dough sheets to make (what she called) "fritella" - crisy and covered with powdered sugar. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

-Baked Ziti
-Penne a la Vodka Sauce
-Lasagna

All served with either fresh garlic bread or bread with olive oil for dipping, of course. I also occasionally like a parmigana dish a la chicken, veal, or eggplant... but those are much heavier than pasta, for my tastes. Oh, and a glass of pinot grigio, chianti, or merlot is nothing short of essential.

I had farfalle (I think) with a wild boar bolognese sauce on it at a restaurant here in DC. It was soooo good.

Without a doubt, EGGPLANT PARMESAN, next would be Braciole (involtini), and last a simple scrambled egg and green pepper mixture done in olive oil and stuffed into fresh Italian bread.

Question for Tiki. Can you get Good Italian Food in Oklahoma? I know when I lived in Kansas it was very hard to find excellent Italian. I used to have to go over to Kansas City Mo. I usually cooked my own.

The way we eat it in Italy is the best....good pasta in a bowl with just a spoonful of sauce on top. So the pasta is not "drowning".

I have to agree with Ileechef "good pasta in a bowl with just a spoonful of sauce on top. So the pasta is not drowning", is the way to go. Whenever, we go out and order pasta, I ALWAYS have to ask for 'light on the sauce" or get the sauce on the side and do it myself. Why does everyone think you need to drown pasta?

Nothing beats a bowl of fresh home made rigotta cavatelli with a dusting of parmigiano reggiano cheese, and a little sauce of course. Chow Jim

Today's favorite (since we're having it tonite for dinner) would be baked ziti with my "famous" tiny meatballs and homemade (yesterday) Sunday gravy. pb



The 7 of us made quite a dent in this.



I have to serve make-it-yourself salad since 3 hate olives, 1 hates raw onion, 2 won't eat carrots...you get the picture.

Next week, my favorite will probably be Carbonara.

Ok, I never met a pasta dish I didn't like. But if pressed for a favorite, I'd go with linguini with white clam sauce.

Twinwillow, always for me on the side with a good red sauce. I usually like linguine or pappardelle. I just got carried away thinking about EGGPLANT....I Love it so much.

I had a bad experience several years ago with a major "Italian" chain...that eggplant wasOFF!

But I generally like it. They even addressed the various kinds of eggplants available in a Thai cooking class I once took. Interesting was the fact that some of them require no soaking for the bitterness (I know a lot of people do this with regular old eggplants).

Yes, another favorite is linguine with white clam sauce from the Daily Catch on Hanover St. in Boston's North End. To DIE for!

One of my fav's is Pasta Cheech ... spaghetti with sauteed cici peas (chick peas) - olive oil and butter, heavy garlic, with parmesan cheese and lots of homemade seasoned bread crumbs sprinkled on top.

also Pasta Padano ... pasta with olive oil, garlic, anchovies, greens such as dandelion or mustard greens or maybe escarole, and lots of grated Grana Padano cheese.

I put italian bread crumbs on top of that too ... I love bread crumbs on lotsa pasta dishes.

I've also got a weakness for gnocchi.

Spaghetti with Meatballs
Rigatoni ala Vodka
Fettucine Alfredo
more or less in that order and always extra points given for fresh pasta!
Can anyone help me - I'm in search of a New Jersey Italian place that serves homemade pasta. Thank you
