Pasta is one of those popular foods that can be made in a variety of ways. Because of its versatility, there’s a pasta dish for everyone out there from lasagna to ziti and from ravioli to linguine.
Pasta pairs perfectly with red wine, and they say a glass of red wine is good for your heart. So drink it with your favorite pasta dish!
We had lunch at Cuban Coffee Company at Tsogo Sun The Ridge and was spoiled with the most delicious Prawn Pasta dish.
After this hearty meal a discussion around why we love pasta came to the table.
Here are some reasons we came up with:
Pasta is the perfect crowd pleaser
Do you have a lot of friends or family coming for dinner? Make a pasta dish or even set up a make-your-own pasta bar with a variety of pasta and sauces for a stress-free, no-fuss meal that everyone will love.
It’s easy to make
Even inexperienced cooks can make pasta. Simply get the water boiling, add your pasta, set a timer, and then drain when finished. Dress it in the sauce of your choice and dinner is served!
The pasta options are endless
Pasta comes in all shapes and sizes from bowties and wheels to noodles and gnocchi. Plus, they come in different flavor varieties like whole wheat or spinach.
So are the sauce options
There is no one way to top off the pasta. Choose a hearty and robust meat sauce or a delicate white wine sauce. Pesto sauce? Yes, please! Alfredo, Puttanesca, and Carbonara are just a few more examples of how you can dress your pasta.
Our lunch was filled with beautifully cooked prawns and a sauce to write home about.
Will the chef share his recipe, we don’t know. But we are going back to convince him …… and enjoy another plate of the best Prawns Pasta in the city.
