Pasta At The Table

In an Italian home, pasta is always served from a large bowl set in the middle of the table. A wide bowl with shallow sloping sides is traditional. II the bowl is too deep the high sides will inhibit the tossing, and therefore the proper saucing, of the pasta. As soon as the pasta and its sauce are together, they must be tossed immediately. A large fork and spoon, or two forks, do the job best.
Pasta is a simple food. The success of a pasta dish will owe much to the quality of its ingredients. In Italy, freshly ground black pepper and freshly grated cheese are basic necessities, making a cheese grater and a pepper grinder essential equipment, both in the kitchen and at the table.
