Done with Pasta

jhopp217 | Mar 16, 2010 04:25 PM

Has anyone else just given up eating something they've always eaten their entire life? In the past six months, I've basically given up pasta. I realized about a year ago that I was so sick of most tomato based sauces. Not that they are necesarily bad, but just all in all boring. Don't get me wrong a good ragu, bolognese, etc is amazing, but just the plain jane Sunday sauce (I refuse to call it gravy). It just seems to me that when eating any pasta dish, even my favorite penne vodke, the least delectable aspect of the dish is the actual pasta. Even fresh pasta doesn't do it for me anymore. Now I can sit and eat a delicious penne sauce, chock full of chopped up prosciutto and dunk bread, broccoli, even chicken into it and be happy, but the pasta craving is gone. Even when dining out, if I try someone else's that they are hemming and hawing about, I'll grin and say, yeah, good sauce. Is it just me or is pasta just well, pasta?
