What do you call a fake noodle?
We know… This isn’t the funnyest joke in the world.
But it is at least somewhat creative and it got us thinking about pasta and Italian cuisine in general.
It isn’t surprising that Italian food is rated as some of the most popular food in the world.
And the reason Italian cuisine has attained such high acclaim is due to its sheer number of classical dishes.
Did you know authentic Italian food has a focus on simplicity?
If you were to find an old Italian cookbook many of the recipes would be less than 10 ingredients.
The early Italian chefs had a focus, not on spice and herbs, but on the freshness of ingredients.
Do us a favor.
Try to name all the Italian dishes you know, or have tried.
How many can you name?
Are you pondering?

Or the Antipasto Salad, Lasagna, Sausage and Peppers, Tuscan Soup, Bruschetta, Eggplant Parmesan, Risotto, Meatball Parmesan, Primavera, Tetrazzini, Calamari, Ciopinno (Clam Stew), or Panettone Bread.
