That's it I'm done, I've tried every shape going all different sauces and I have decided once and for all its crap. All it is is boiled dough and I'm done with it

IfartInYourGeneralDirection Mon 26-Sep-16 17:31:53's a fucking food crime

Also cauliflower rice

Adding you to my 'avoid' list
plain pasta with salt would be my last meal, with a glass of red

Well all bread is is baked dough. All pancake is is fried dough. All dumpling is is steamed dough.

And cookies, and doughnuts and cake.....

Pasta is better than both of those.

wholewheat pasta is delish - I have it with veg and cheese

sonlypuppyfat Mon 26-Sep-16 17:34:26

Red wine that's another one on my shit list, ugh it sucks all the moisture from your mouth

YABU penne arribata is my all time favourite meal.

Goats cheese, now that is pointless... Why would you want to eat something that tastes like your mouth after you've vomited!

Maybe we just shouldn't meet for dinner smile

StealthPolarBear Mon 26-Sep-16 17:35:42

Where do you stand on chocolate?
Jelly, I agree and it smells authentically of goat...why??

Pasta is amazing stuff. Ds would eat it for every meal of I let him. I don't know what patents did before pasta.

Pasta is the food of the gods!
Al dente, with lashings of butter, black pepper, chilli, salt, and gran padano cheese. The ultimate comfort food.
I have a lasagne each year for my birthday. With candles in.

Cauliflower in any cooked form is bleuuuuch.
Desiccated coconut is also on my list of horrible foods.

AndNowItsSeven Mon 26-Sep-16 17:37:15

Love pasta , just with butter and black pepper.

Sparklesilverglitter Mon 26-Sep-16 17:37:16

Pasta IS a very lovely meal as long as you don't over cook the pasta then it is like boiled dough

Califlower rice and courgette spaghetti are crimes against food!
Marrow, just bloody awful
Goats cheese, I'd rather chew my own arm off

Are you making the sauces or buying them? Most readymade sauces are pretty disgusting.

Losgunna Mon 26-Sep-16 17:37:51

Yabvvvu. Pasta is the best food in the world and I would eat it every single day if I thought I could get away with it. Penne, lasagne, tagliatelle, parpadelle, spaghetti, rigatoni, fusilli, linguine, macaroni. All beautiful.

BaronessBomburst Mon 26-Sep-16 17:38:57

Goats cheese with fenugreek. Heaven!

daisiesinherfootsteps Mon 26-Sep-16 17:38:57


In fact this may be the most unreasonable post I have ever seen on here.

StealthPolarBear Mon 26-Sep-16 17:39:17

Mmm I love pasta with a bit of crunch
and a birthday lasagne - brilliant! Who are you, Garfield?

I love pasta. I also love every other food mentioned on this thread so far, especially cauliflower. Cauliflower and macaroni cheese is especially delicious!

SueTrinder Mon 26-Sep-16 17:40:07

it smells authentically of goat...why??

Well, cows milk smells of cow so why is it a surprise that goats' milk smells of goats. Although it does depend if there's a billy about. I horrified a woman in a posh cheese shop when I said the goats' cheese smelt of billy goat. A much more... em... pungent aroma than nanny goats.

Corn beef, now that's a hideous food.

JacquelineChan Mon 26-Sep-16 17:40:31

You obviously haven't had a meal prepared by my Nonna !

StealthPolarBear Mon 26-Sep-16 17:40:41

Blergh at corned beef
