Us? We’re feeling saucy. You know, marinara, carbonara, puttanesca, pesto. When we realized Sunday is #WorldPastaDay, we just couldn’t help ourselves (or wait to help ourselves to a steaming bowl of noods)! 🍝 So get ready for this week’s Future-Focused Friday—a day all about looking ahead—with a plateful of pasta-inspired blogs, articles, videos and more to fill your plate!
While we’re not going to pasta-ulate on which is our favorite style, according to one Twitter user, these are the best pasta shapes you’ve never heard of (“tooty pipe shape” might be our favorite descriptor, though 🤣). If you’d like a more ‘official’ look at pasta shapes and to learn a bit of the Italiano, check out this more ‘educational’ list.
But enough about the pasta, we all know what’s really important: the sauce. Get in the kitchen with this incredibly easy, staff favorite sauce recipe that’s just four ingredients (hint: you probably have two in your fridge right now). Or if you're looking to expand your repertoire, we've found a list of 68 (!) pasta sauces to make at home.
Allora, back to the pasta. We've found that even students who study abroad outside of the 👢 (aka Italy) manage to get their hands (or forks) on some perfectly al dente cuisine. So whether they're in Milano, Roma, or Siena, or London, Barcelona, or Vienna, they've shared their incredible, edible, pastacular moments. Now that's amore! 👩🍳 💋
