What happened to my icon? It disappeared and I don't know how to get it back! (I don't want to be a Slinky)

Any pasta dish is a favorite with me. I may not like that inky pasta that you posted a few months ago. I have never had it, but it is not appealing, so I wouldn't even try it. (Maybe on a bet, I would!)


I had an amazing pasta with a creamy walnut and Wild Boar sausage sauce in Tuscany that totally changed how I see nuts. And certainly Trofie al Pesto is a whole other way of enjoying pesto. But I would say Spaghetti aglie e olio simply because of its perfect simplicity.


I have a weakness for gnocchi. An Italian friend makes it with a light creamy prawn sauce. I can't resist going for seconds!

Bernie Ross

Yup. All good ones here. Mind you, I do find that the IDEA of all that wild boar stuff is better than the actual eating. True of most gamey stuff, in my very humble....

The fabulous exception (also from Tuscany, I believe) is that glorious hare sauce, for which fresh parpardelle are obligatory. Fill your face with that one, foodies !

Any pasta as long as its Italian!...


I do love any and all pastas (my family gave me the nickname Pasta Queen at a very early age). For me, pasta, like pizza, is best when it is simple. Just plain tomato sauce--homemade. My favorite pasta dish from Italy was one I had on a small boat cruise taken around the islands of Ponza, Palmarola. It was made on the boat, by the family who ran the tour...simple tomato sauce with black olives. Perfect. I also had a great pasta dish at Buca di Bacco in Positano..Tagliatelline with angler fish, cherry tomatoes and black summer truffle

Yum...they all sound / look delicious! I'll also add alla vongole - for some reason, I really, really, really like this!


What about Lombardia? I would guess rissotto.

Peter Fraher

Can I suggest a bottle of Zenato Valpolicella Ripassa It goes really well with rich pasta dishes.
