    Is pasta a noodle and vice a versa.

    As the title says.

    Just a yes or no and the first to 10 wins.

    Idea comes from here...https://teakdoor.com/food-and-drink/1...ml#post2777608

    Let the games begin.

    Spaghetti is a noodle.

    Pasta is many things.

    Fresh pasta is always made with egg.
    Only long shelf life dried pasta uses water.

    Some opinions.

    A 've always called all "pasta" noodles. I grew up refering to lasagna, spaghetti, spaetzle or other noodles as noodles--not only when they're in Chinese dishes. I first started hearing the term "pasta" around the mid 1980s when in my 20s. Now it seems to be pushing the older term "noodles" out. When did this start happening? Does anyone think it has to do with media manipulation of language--i.e. by using the term "pasta" it will sound more upmarket. Comments please.

    BI blame foodies and the associated pretentiousness that they spout.


    C I have to respectfully disagree. I didn't grow up in a "foodie" household at all and macaroni was always macaroni, spaghetti always meant spaghetti, bowties were always bowties, etc. Collectively they were all pasta. We never called macaroni or shells "noodles" only egg noodles, Kluski noodles, ramen noodles, lasagna noodles or other stretched pasta were noodles. This was also in the '70's and 80"s. I guess it's the same thing in some families with "gravy" as we never called spaghetti sauce gravy. I think it's just a matter of where you're from and what your family traditionally calls things. No need to hate on it.
    On the same note, are soft drinks called "pop", "soda" or "Coke"? There is no right or wrong answer- it all depends on the same things.



    Nice thread... Seems to depend on age. My spaghetti sauce is called gravy as well.

    Poof. Egg noodles have eggs in them, they can be dried or fresh. The other horrid brown ones that take an hour to cook have no eggs and taste like cardboard are made from dhurem wheat or something like that.

    A bit like brown rice.

    I just looked at my dried pasta from my local supermarket and it says it is three egg pasta from free range eggs.

    That other stuff is shite.

    Age perhaps, AO...
    But certainly has much to do with language/culture exposure.

    As stated in another thread [which was the inspiration for this one]: Semantics. No absolutes.

    You lucky fukker!

    I grew up waiting for the lard in the chip fat fryer to heat up.

    I reckon I was 14 before I had heard of noodles, those fukkers were called Pot Noodles!

    It's pasta - Would you go to an Italian reastaurant and ask for egg noodle bolognaise? No, you would ask for spaghetti bolognaise. Which is pasta.

    I read somewhere you can get 400 different shapes of pasta in Italy, to suit all sauces and dishes.

    I remember Alphabeti Spagetti. (see i still can't spell it!!!)

    Pasta is made from durum wheat and originates, it's widely thought, from Sicily.
    Noodles are made from rice flour (usually) and originate from China.

    What sort of remotely sensible person would think when they're eating a cup of 'Mama' that it's pretty much the same thing as Spaghetti Carbonara?

    Having done some research on this it seems that in the US they refer to spaghetti as noodles but, let's be honest, the day we start following the lead of Americans in things gastronomic will be a cold day in hell.

    Or maybe we should be copying Thai and calling orange juice 'orange water', fish sauce 'fish water' etc. After all they contain water so they're pretty much the same thing, eh?

    We have two perfectly good words for two quite different things: noodles and spaghetti.
