New Jamie Oliver programme. Bolognese with cutted up lasagne. Ground breaking.

I'd love to chin him.

Why do people hate Jamie Oliver?

Really? Says more about you than anything.

God, has he only just realised that you can put bolognaise sauce with any pasta?

Sometimes we mix two different types together, depending on what's left in the cupboard. Macaroni & penne at the same time!

I am clearly wasting my time here. Should be writing my own food blog, full of these revolutionary ideas, & making a fortune!

On the bright side Aldi will be stocking Turkey Twizzlers again

If you hate him don’t watch him? Why the vitriol?

WarriorsComeOutToPlayay Mon 17-Aug-20 21:46:20

I like Jamie, he really inspired me to cook in my teens. I really don't get all the nastiness towards him.

Me too @WarriorsComeOutToPlayay !

Have I missed something? I always thought pasta was just pasta - albeit cut into different shapes- but them
Same ingredients mixed the same and cooked the same. (Ok lasagne is baked not boiled).

Wanky pasta / parmesan wink

Bargebill19 Mon 17-Aug-20 21:51:42

Oh! Nuff said

Barge!! My Italian nonna would be turning in her grave! The shape of pasta is so important, different shapes hold the sauces differently...

Neverrrrrrr serve bolognese sauce with spaghetti eh? Long flat pasta such as tagliatelle or pappardelle... yummm.

Oh now I want pasta. Dammit

I bet he thinks he’s being smart as lasagne sheets were all that were left when the pasta shelves were emptied back in March/April. Times have changed!

MrsHound Mon 17-Aug-20 21:54:55

Jamie Oliver is well meaning but unfortunately very irritating.

Amen to this. Though I suppose by cutting up lasagne sheets he is essentially making some tagliatelle or linguine.

Spaghetti should come almost exclusively with vongole!

HolyCorona Mon 17-Aug-20 22:16:57

@Lurchermom not just making tagliatelle, more stabbing lasagne sheets.

I don't dislike him, just would like to see some innovation.

I think I need to watch this confused

Was going to say the same thing. My Italian DH has taught me this, I was sceptical until I tried orecchiette con broccoli except with conchiglie because we had no orecchiette left. How wrong I was... it DOES make a difference.

TinyMetalBirds Mon 17-Aug-20 22:26:13

I watched it with DS1 (aged 12). We thought the pasta was cool, and will try it.

Bargebill19 Mon 17-Aug-20 22:42:22

I humbly apologise to all Italian mamas everywhere. I’m a mere lass from the welsh borders.

But now I want pasta too!

goose1964 Mon 17-Aug-20 22:51:16

We had homemade lasagne tonight (DD's birthday). I now want spaghetti vongole.
