Iftar with my besties....

Besties are friends who have each other's backs, look out for each other, spend lots of awesome time together, and are really good friends. Easily said, Besties = Best Friends.

As time goes by, we all get caught up with our own business.It's very hard to get everyone to gather at the same time cuz there'll be one person who is busy with his or her studies, two who are studying overseas, three who would be occupied with their boyfriends and bla bla bla...So yeah...

Last few days were awesome as we got the chance to have everyone sitting together having an awesome time for two days in a row.

Iftar at Pepper Lunch, Sunway Pyramid
First time having dinner at Pepper Lunch....I would definitely come here again...The food is unique and taste really goood...

Jom order beramai-ramai...

Pepper Lunch is an affordable DIY fast food steakhouse.Nampak x DIY di situ? Do it yourself! So you'll get to experience the fun of cooking your meal yourself, just the way you want it. The dish at Pepper Lunch is served on a special iron hot plate. The secret lies in the iron plate which will heat up to 260C in 70 seconds and remain hot (approximately 80C) for more than 20 minutes.As you can see in the pic above..From red juicy beef to medium done tender beef.Sedappp!!!

Fettuccine or Spaghetti?

It'll be a lot easier if you only have to choose between these two types of pasta..But do you know that there are hundred types of pasta today? More that 600 pasta shapes worldwide!!! It is said that new ones are made in Italy annually. Cool huh?

I had my Iftar with my friends at UNO last Friday. I was asked to choose between Fettuccine & Spaghetti...
That question gave me the idea to write about this post.Oh well actually i wanted to write about types of pasta few months ago..tapi cam x semangat plak...deswaiiii...

Here are some of the well-known Tipi di Pasta...

Spaghetti : It's one of the oldest and the most popular type of pasta today..This long, thin,
                   round strands of  pasta is delicious to be eaten with bolognese sauce.

Fettuccine : Derived from fettucce (string) has a flat shape and wide.It can be green, black
                    or yellow depending on the ingredients used.

Farfalle : The name means butterfly in Italian so does it's shape.There are some serrations
                present on each side. This is ideal for main courses like salad and is served with 
                creamy sauce.

Vermicelli : It is a short, round, thin pasta strands - thinner form of spaghetti. It can be 
                    served with meat and seafood.

Conchiglioni : Seashell-shaped pasta. It is perfect for salads, soups, delicious cream or
                        sumptuous tomato sauces as the shape is good for catching dribbly sauces.

Fusilli : It has a shape like spiral. It can be cooked with cream tomato sauce and peas.
             It is great for catching cream and vegetable sauces

Cannelloni : It has a shape like a pipe. One can cook it with meat and cheese.

Linguine : Narrow, long flat pasta that means little tongues in Italian. 

Macaroni : This is very popular like spaghetti. It has curve pipe shape and can be 
                     cooked for baked dishes and for soups

Lasagne : Lasagna is one sheet of flat pasta whereas lasagne refers to several such
                 sheets.They are ripple-edged strips, about 2-1/4-inches wide and 10-inches long.

Spätzle : Derived from a German word, spaetzle are very small noodles (or dumplings)
               that are rolled or squeezed through a colander. 

Tortellini : A small stuffed pasta that looks like little hats. It is usually stuffed with a mixture
                  of cheese, meat and vegetables

Campanelle : Flattened bell-shaped pasta with a frilly edge on one end

Penne rigate : Diagonally cut, tubular-shaped pasta with ridged surface

Caccavelle : This big boy pasta is currently the world's largest pasta shape. One 
                      caccavella' measures approximately 11cm across at its widest point.

Ravioli : Arguably the most well-known type of stuffed pasta, ravioli (plural) are
                usually square with slightly ruffled edges.They are normally filled with 
                meat or spinach.
