Let’s take a quick tour into the world of pasta!
Pasta Around the World
While Basta Pasta is known for fine Italian food and one of the premier pasta restaurants in Fallston, visitors from other countries may not know what type of food we serve! You see, pasta is served in some shape or form in other countries and is known as udon in Japan, mein in China and spaetzle in Germany. But, not matter where you are from, you can’t deny the delicious taste and the celebration that is fine Italian food.
Pasta basically consists of two basic raw materials: water and semolina flour. Semolina is ground flour that is amber-colored and grown specifically for being used as pasta. Semolina flour is much more easily digestible than a lot of other flour. Farina flour can be used to make pasta as well, but most of the flour is semolina flour. Eggs are sometimes mixed in to add color and richness. Adding herbs and spices like garlic has recently increased in popularity.
Fallston Pasta Preparation
The flour needs to be mixed and kneaded before it’s ready to go in the oven. The most important process before the pasta finds its way to your table is the cutting. The cutting phase will determine the type of noodle you will dine on. After the past is dried, you will be ready to enjoy this delicious Italian food in Fallston’s famous pasta restaurant!
