101 ways to eat Tallarines….

Last night I had some of the girls from the rugby team over for a team pasta dinner. According to the RSVPs (or lack thereof) we expected (and cooked for) 20. 5 showed up. So now I’ve got a mountain (2 kilos) of pasta. So today starts the 1001 Nights of Tallarines. Any suggestions of what to do next?

Breakfast today was fried spaghetti with jamón and a blue cheese sauce.

  1. Oh, sweetie. I remember having my first apartment and throwing a party in my freshmen year of college. I invited 30, 4 showed up. We had fun but SOOOOOOO much food. Anyway, there are lots of things to do with plain pasta — it is an international staple. For instance, noodle kugel which is sweet (polish); butter, parmesan cheese and black pepper (aka cacio e pepe), an Italian fav. Or Lo Mein. Or, how about Chap Jae, the korean noodle, vegetable and beef version. Or put into soup. Layer it with a bechamel sauce and mushrooms for a delightful vegetarian lasagna. Or, saute garlic, peas and prosciutto.

    But most of all, enjoy. You can also freeze pasta — but best to use in a stir fry if you are going to freeze.

  2. Seeing as it’s the one thing I know I am good at making, I’m going to use this opportunity to lure you back to NYC (somehow) to sample some of my pesto. We’d each be solving the other’s problem, I think.

  3. Haha sounds like a plan. Pasta’s not a liquid so it shouldn’t be a problem for me to throw it in my carry-on right? I mean, I don’t want to check a bag for a weekend trip. 😉
