This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."

Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

Say yes to Italian food!
But there's Italian food, and there's Italian-American food.

I think when most of us say we like Italian food, we really mean Italian-American food.

I have had pizza in Rome, for example, but that couldn't hold a candle to the pizza in New York City.

Hint for better spaghetti: cook the pasta 1/2-3/4 in water, drain, then add to the sauce to fish cooking. It will absorb some of the suce.

Caveat: I have never done this with regular spaghetti, although I believe the person I learned this from has. I always use the shaped pasta, especially radiatore and campanelle. The latter is especially good with chili, as it is shaped like a horn and can catch the meat, beans, and sauce.

Jerry, I am glad to see that I am not the only one who sometimes messes up the job of proofreading what I wrote. The results are sometimes hilarious, as per your example this time.

So you add your partially cooked pasta to the sauce to fish cooking. Does the fish stir the pot with its tail and what is the suce that the pasta absorbs?

I'll have to let you know -- when I figure it out! laughing laughing laughing

Now, if this had been about rice, the fish cooking would have been in the steamer basket above the rice cooker.
