Is there any need for....

Spaghetti to be so long?

Arguably better half the length.

I’d go one further and say there’s no need for spaghetti full stop.

I’ve just done exactly that for the first time ever which is what prompted the thread.

I actually agree. But for some reason have 4 packets of it.

never bought it and never cooked it so I don’t feel qualified to have an opinion sorry

It doesn’t fit in a saucepan, 2020 and we’re trying to cook things that don’t fit in pans

Generally use linguine but I enjoy the length. I like to spin them round my fork. Also I like pushing them into the pan til the bottoms soften and they all collapse in.

Big fan of Orecchiette. Which are ear shaped.

I don’t cook spaghetti often but always do it this way, tbh they never fit in the pot properly anyway otherwise, it’s usually a 1 person serving so a small pot

Probably whatever shape holds my chorizo pieces best

Two thirds length please. Though I do quite like squishing it into the pan as it softens tbf…

Always cut R’s up with thr kitchen scissors to stop sauce-based carnage.

Of the long pastas tagliatelle is my favourite though, hopefully finally cooking the vegan not-carbonara I was meant to do it the weekend with some later :yum:

I like the fucking ridiculousness of it. Absolutely no need for it to be that long but the Italians really went there anyway, great work imo
