Pasta | From Donut alla Bolognese to spaghetti ice cream

21-2-2018

  • Restaurante Contraste Milaan
  • Restaurant Intermezzo Ulvenhout

A year ago we ate at restaurant Contraste in Milan a truly delicious ‘Donut alla Bolognese’, a dish you won’t forget! The nice thing is that the dish puts you on the wrong track, only the resemblance in the   shape reminded me of a donut. You can do many things with pasta and in this article I have collected a number of examples. Now I have to admit that a number of ‘hip, trendy’ pasta dishes have been known for a long time, for example I used to make a ‘spaghetti alla Carbonara’- pie in my student days. And my student days have been behind me for several decades! On our Pinterest page we made an ‘Italian Inspiration’ wall with photos and videos of various trendy pasta dishes. What do you think of a ’30 feet long pasta strand’ or spaghetti served from a Parmigiano cheese wheel? Or spaghetti tacos, cupcakes or ‘rainbow spaghetti’? ^Marjolein lees verder
