I am a pasta slave! In any and every shape it comes in, I will totally and willfully bow at it’s glory. There are over 350 types of pasta in existence, about 30 being most common, and in this country, Spaghetti is the most common pasta type. Some people say all types of pasta taste the same, but the real ones know each type does taste different and they all bring something different to the table. Each type of pasta tastes different because they carry sauce differently, pair different with specific sauces, must be cooked a certain way for a specific time and the starchiness breaks down different in a mouthful. My top three favorite types of pasta are penne, lasagna and linguine. And for today, I am letting my queen linguine shine!! I gave you a sneak peak of this on twitter in January and the day is finally here that you too get to indulge in this beauty.
It is saucy, it is creamy, it is rich, it is meaty and it is unforgettable!!
One of my favorite December holidays of all time was when my very generous uncle and aunty took us to stay in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, with them for 2 weeks. It was our first time there and they made sure we had the time of our life. One day during our stay there, my aunty took us to the neighboring island paradise of Zanzibar for the afternoon. That is one of the prettiest places I have ever been to. After touring the island and getting some memorabilia for ourselves, we headed out for lunch. My aunt ordered for my cousins for us pasta marinara, which is light but still filling and very tasty. I did not know the name of the dish then, I found out may years later after getting into my love for cooking.
This spaghetti marinara is a very easy dish to prepare, for beginners who want to try something tasty and exciting and also for those who have more experience in the kitchen but appreciate a good short cut to a great meal.
