PAPPARDELLE ALFREDO

Alfredodished 

I love noodles.  Most any kind.  Noodles is my broad ranging word for pasta.  Say it, 'noodles'.  See it's homey and comfortable. Feels good. It's a friendlier, happier word than 'pasta', which is fufu or just too detached and a little blah.  We'll have none of that around here!

NOODLES.  Yeahhh....now we're talking.  Like you, I have my favorite noodle shapes too.  I love good old fashioned elbow macaroni, really skinny egg noodles and angel hair, sauce hugging lumache are way up high on my list, orechiette is so great in soup and I have a particular love affair (that's amore!) with pappardelle.

Those gorgeous, very broad ribbons of fettucine are such a perfect choice for so many sauces and preparations, and they have just the right 'bite', the right mouthfeel, if you know what I mean.  The name 'pappardelle' is derived from the verb 'pappare' which means to gobble up.  So appropos.
