medium sized tubular bridegrooms

14 August 2003

i don’t agree with everything on this which pasta goes with which sauce list. and besides it’s completely lacking in tagliatelle, the best form of pasta there is, especially if it’s fresh out of my pasta maker (or yours i expect). though it does have fettucine which is pretty similar i think.

i’m delighted to find out what some of the italian names mean in english. why on earth are “medium-sized, tubular pasta” known as bridegrooms (ziti)? i feel that there’s a joke in there somewhere but i’m not going to be the one to make it.
