HOW TO EAT: Pasta
If you've ever been guilty of cutting your noodles down to size or even using a spoon to assist in eating that universal delicacy known as pasta, then today's "how to eat" tutorial is just for you.
Beloved the world over, there are likely no shortages of ways people like to eat their pasta, and today we'll get you going in the right direction for some yummy--and proper--noshing.
To eat spaghetti (or other long noodles), use your fork and separate a few strands. Hold the tip of the prongs against the plate and twirl the fork around to gather the strands onto it. Don't stir and don't use a spoon. Even in Italy the use of a spoon is frowned upon except at very informal, family-style meals. Small-sized pasta such as tortellini, ziti, and penne are eaten with a fork.
