As we all know, pasta is a term for Italian variants of noodles. There are approximately 350 different shapes of pasta and each of them has a unique name for itself. The common ones are spaghetti (thin and long), macaroni (tubes), fusilli (swirls) and lasagne (sheets).

Today we had Italian lunch. We prepared 4 types of sauces for our spaghetti and fusilli. The fusilli we used comes in 3 flavours with 3 different colours; tomato (orange), spinach (green) and original (beige). The colourful fusilli make our pasta look more appetizing *grin*


Fusilli Napolitana (made with fresh tomatoes & tomato puree)

Fusilli Bolognese (we substitute minced beef with minced chicken)

    Now you can cook pasta for mummy when she goes home…. that’s what I do for her here, she cooks me chinese food, I cook her pasta 🙂 She doesn’t like penne (she calls them the ones with holes). She likes linguine/spaghetti.
