Thank you so much,Rizmu ! Sometimes an ordinary dish becomes more interesting with a dramatic presentation,like this one,just a very plain meat sauce pasta,but baked with all pasta stand upright,and showing circles of charred edges. I am glad you like this too,I am looking forward to your version!
Thank you for your compliments! Seems like it's been done in Italy but not too well known,I am glad I found this idea to serve pasta too,I think it's fun and it actually makes it more delicious with the charred edges! This pasta has to boiled shortly first(I think I boiled too long so I lost the round shape),then arranged,sprinkle cheese and goes in oven.
Hi Rick! I have some of the same pasta...paccheri? mine is rigatoni, are they the same? I plan to make rigatoni cake with meat sauce! saw a recipe with the pasta arranged same way as yours 😍 I love your dishes, your arrangement says"foreigner!" 😊 I don't know after living here for 28 years , I feel like one of the natives😅but I dont want to lost the foreigner touch when it comes to cooking...✨
Thanks so much,Sanntina! Paccheri is similar to rigatoni,only shorter and smooth on the surface. Actually I found this when browsing the internet,this seems to be a tradition dish but it's less seen than other famous pasta dishes. I was intending to keep the round shape which make it looks more dramatic,I think I cooked it a little too long and it ended up like that,luckily it tasted amazing with all those charred edges! I am a traditionalist when it comes to cooking,I try to absorb as much informations from the origins of the dishes as possible,these days is easy enough,information is everywhere! While it's a good thing to stick to tradition,adding a local touch would be great too!Western dishes with Japanese ingredients are my favourite things to eat or cook!
