You could probably knit an egg into  noodles ;-)

Smoked trout on toasted english muffins and dressed with homemade hollandaise sauce.

Much more decadent than anticipated.

I walked in Kilwin's Chocolate Shop in Blowing Rock. $25/lb for most of the stuff. Really good, and out of my tightwad league.

Is there any reason why someone would choose to eat pasta made partially from soft wheat (and partially durum)?

I mean someone who has a clue.

Cost.  It's cheaper to manufacture.

Secondly, if it is a high end manufacturer, they can manipulate the texture of the pasta.  Different wheats have different amounts of gluten and other proteins.  The can control the way the pasta cooks. 


I would imagine it might affect the taste too, but I would never be able to tell.

right, it could be cheaper, but is there any situation in which it would be considered acceptable as a food item?

at the risk of bringing up painful memories (of raspberry)

I was thinking of making some sort of strawberry filling for between two layers of vanilla cake. 

Any suggestions? (I have frozen strawberries, if that makes a difference)

Changing the wheat structure of pasta can also alter things like carb content, fiber content, etc. A couple of weeks ago I was over at Aahz's house and we experimented with cooking with a "high fiber" pasta. It cooked up really sticky; we had to rinse it in order to get it to behave like regular pasta in a dish.

There's a local brand of pasta that's made with partial soft wheat and partial durum.

They have a second line called "perfecto."  The perfecto line is 100% durum.

I find the regular completely inedible, and wonder why they persist in selling it, when the price differential is pretty small.

Different tastes.....I grew up on soft tastless pasta smothered in sickly sweet tomato sauce.  There are a lot of people that think it's supposed to be that way.  Now I know better.  I'm not supposed to eat pasta either.  Low carb thing.  That didn't stop me from having taco's and potatoe ole's at Taco Johns though.  No need to be a fanatic.

IMO, frozen strawberries make a better filling.  The freezing process breaks down the cell walls.

I love for recipes.

tril : The regualr pasta is crap - like comparing a Big Mac to a steak. We only use whole wheat pasta ourselves.

We find the taste better (after the whole wheat pasta the regular stuff seems to leave an after taste) a lot more healthier, and

heck, I'll be blunt, a lot less gassier - the regular pasta give us a lt more gas.

I've only had whole wheat pasta once or twice. Maybe next time I buy, I'll try it.

the soft wheat stuff is total crap though. it turns to mush in minutes.

Good quality 100% whole wheat will keep al dente much better.  Try Barilla.

Who's eating all the snacks before they go back to work? I know I am. I'm allowed to buy donuts for someone else, and oranges and fruit for me. Still, I could go on Draper's lose it quick diet: only tuna and water for three days. I'm not sure if 'lose it quick' refers to bodyfat or my mind.
