    The Pasta Thread

    I love me some pasta and sauce! How about you? What do you like? Do be specific, I like a nice Penne and White Sauce. The more cheese and bacon the better.

    What are the supermarkets like in Mandalay? You have been there what 3 months. Do you prefer the new school over your old location in Rangist riot? Is it hard teaching kids? How are Sentrix and Bud?

    I'll answer them,seeing as you asked.
    1. The school is nicer and a little more progressive- kids can only speak English on campus and that makes a big difference
    2. No- easier than teaching adults IMO. Kids are from wealthy families but for the most are well behaved and keen to learn. HiSo rarely equals brat in my experience.
    3. They don't live here, so I have no idea.

    Now, I have a question for you

    Why does pasta still make you so angry?!

    Not pasta but banned posters coming back with new nicks is what bothers me. You are only here to troll as well.

    Uh, no being that even the name is a troll aimed directly at moi? He has tried about 50 nicks in the last month on ajarn but gets caught out each time. Jethro Tull type but persistent he is. Plus I think he is getting off on still being able to post and thinking he is pulling the wool over peoples eyes.

    You're an over-sensitive and thin-skinned lad, AO - here, there, and everywhere.


    Get over yourself.

    Two totally different pasta dishes, one tomatoey and one creamy: Carbonara and Bolognese. Both simple, but you need to be careful to get them just right.

    Love 'em all.
    After 7 years in Italy I could cheerfully live on pasta in any of it's myriad forms.

    She's getting pretty good at cooking 'em up to.

    I just wish there was decent afordable wine to go with 'em.

    Mandalay is actually pretty good for western food but wine will come at quite a pretty premium. As for the local food, I prefer Shan fare.

    Indian food is also pretty popular and is thankfully served up at the local beer station. Most of the beef was hiding under the rice

    Agnolotti pasta with a porcini and truffle sauce washed down with a good bottle of Barbaresco...

    Regardless, looks very nice indeed.

    ^ Yes it's similar to ravioli but smaller and comes from the region around Turin, as does the red wine. It will soon be Steinpilz picking season here in Bavaria, the equivalent of porcini in Italy....

    Another favourite sauce of mine is Florentine (Spinaci alla Fiorentina) with plenty of chopped spinach, which is good with most filled pastas.

    Shouldn't this thread be in the cooking section...I could add lots of pictures of me drinking red wine and the occasional shot of some ingredients...

    They both look delicious Bb, making me hungry. I like to cook mine like the top pic, rigatoni style. I use lean beef mince, a dash of fresh chilli, some fresh coriander and my secret ingredient, a good dose of spicy cajun seasoning as I fry up the mince, onions and tomatoes.
    And just why would anyone get upset about pasta ? Is there a story behind this ? Something to do with Ajarn forum, which I know nothing about except it is a TEFLer forum ?

    Wonderful topic, applaud, applaud. Where can I begin with this delectable topic?

    From a beginners point of view pasta and sauce is wonderful.

    Exploring the origins of the Western pasta-type might be more fascinating.....
