Pasta Al Dente!
This is an Italian word pronounced AHL DEN-tay, that means “to the teeth”. Pasta is considered cooked to an ideal degree of doneness where it is firm, but not hard enough for one to chew.
Whatever the occasion, whenever or wherever...there is always a good pasta meal that fits your taste.
Whether you like it home-cooked or enjoyed in your favorite restaurant, pastas are irresistibly good and filling and always reasonable in price.
Its good to note, though that, a lot of pasta taken means a lot of carbohydrates being consumed by the body, and we don't want that to prevent from gaining weight. Pasta lovers need not feel disheartened though, because you always get your whole wheat pasta that tastes as good and al dente as any regular white pasta. Whole wheat pasta is more filling because it is full of fiber and is not converted to sugar if not burned through regular exercise.
For some of the best and really good tasting pasta dishes, I have here suggestions on how to cook or prepare them at home ( when you have the luxury of time to do it) or eaten in your favorite restaurants for lunch or for dinner.
Pasta alla carbonara. Carbonara is an Italian word for charcoal. The dish requires a long form of pasta, a lot prefers spaghetti ( though my personal choice is linguine). Carbonara is a mixture of eggs and Parmigiano mixed with or olive oil to make a sauce; bacon is added, along with and black pepper.
