Family menu and pasta to enjoy in a unique atmosphere

May is Family Month. Children's Day (5th), which is the red day on the calendar, aside from Mother's Day (8th) and Teacher's Day (15th), is a series of days full of love and gratitude, from the usual unfamiliar Coming-of-Age Day (18th) and Couple Day (21st). Furthermore, since it's Monday until Buddha's birthday (25th) this year, there are three-day vacations, including weekends, so eating out is bound to be frequent.

When it comes to family dining menus, ribs are the first thing that comes to mind. However, beef ribs are a heavy financial burden, and pork ribs are difficult to stop at first glance because of the smoke and smell. However, the same menu every time, such as jajangmyeon and sweet and suyuk, is not only moved, but also likely to listen to the family's thoughts. If so, how about entertaining the family with a slightly unusual menu? The main character is noodles and pasta that are rolled up and eaten while holding a spoon in the left hand and a fork in the right hand.

Pasta is a noodle dish familiar to us as “spaghetti.” The birthplace is Italy, the country of pizza. It was made by cutting and baking the dough to make it easier to eat. Dried pasta (dried pasta) appeared in southern Naples and spread throughout Italy. Then, when a pasta compression molding machine was invented in the early 17th century, mass production became possible, and now it has developed into a food that can be easily enjoyed by anyone in the world.

Many people ask about the difference between spaghetti and pasta, but spaghetti is a type of pasta. You can understand that kishimen noodles are among the noodles in Korea. In other words, all noodles made by kneading flour in the Italian style are called pasta. It includes things that resemble our makguksu, sujebi, and even gyoza.

However, the flour used for pasta is slightly different from the flour used to make bread or noodles. Pasta uses a flour called “semolina,” and durum wheat, which has a high gluten content, is coarsely ground. Most pasta is golden because semolina has a yellow color.
The names of local Italian pasta vary depending on the size or shape of the noodles, but it's so complicated that there are hundreds of pieces of pasta alone. However, there are around 10 things I like to eat in Korea. If you know just a few names, you can go to an Italian restaurant and act like a foodie who eats pasta.

Spaghetti, the representative pasta of pasta, is a long pasta with long noodles. It refers to things with a diameter of 1.6 to 2.2 mm; those that are thinner than this are called “spaghetti,” those that flatten the round cross section of spaghetti are called “linguini,” and those that are wider are called “lasagna.”
There is also short pasta, which is the opposite of long pasta. These include “penne,” which looks like the tip of a pen, “macaroni” with a hole cut like a straw, “fusilli” made in a spiral shape, and “farpalais” shaped like a butterfly. What looks like a seashell is called a “conchiglie.” Short pastas include “gnocchi,” which is reminiscent of homemade rice, and “ravioli” in the style of dumplings. Short pasta is widely used for dishes with rich sauces, as an ingredient in soups, and to laugh at salads.

Pasta is even more appealing because you can enjoy completely different flavors depending on the sauce, even if it's the same side. Using spaghetti as an example, it is basically flavored by combining four different sauces. Red tomato sauce, white cream sauce, clear olive sauce, and yellow-green pesto sauce.
The signature dish of pasta with cream sauce is carbonara, which contains egg yolk and fresh cream. Olive sauce pasta is representative of allio olio, which is flavored with garlic and olive oil, and pesto sauce pasta is basil pesto pasta mixed with basil herb in olive oil.
