FridayQ: Tasty

Posted on Friday, April 29th, 2005

Dave!Your favorite sweet food? When did you last have it? My grandmother's apple pie, and I had it about three weeks ago.

Your favorite salty food? When did you last have it? French fries, which I had two days ago.

Your favorite sour food? When did you last have it? Green apples, which I had last summer.

FQ EDIBLE: What's the best thing you've ever tasted? The most horrible thing you've ever tasted? The best thing would have to be Pasta Salvi from Salvi's Bistro in Columbus Ohio... I still fantasize about it, and would probably weigh 700 pounds if I lived anywhere in the vicinity of Columbus. The worst would have to be natto (which is also the strangest), a Japanese delicacy that is nothing less than torture to the uninitiated.

Everything is tasty at the FridayQ.

    Best pizza joint? Favorite beer? Have these been covered in the past?

  2. Dave2 says:

    Indeed they have! Best pizza is at “David’s Pizza” in Spokane, Washington. Best bottle of beer is “Pyramid Hefeweizen” out of Seattle (though I like their “Pale Ale” as well).

    I gotta ask — what were you doing in Columubus?

  4. Dave2 says:

    My work takes me around the globe. I was in Columbus for a class on EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) that I needed to take. I’ve actually been there several times for one reason or another.

    I also make trips to Columbus just for the Pasta Salvi. I just found this haven’t tried it yet.

    Pasta Salvi (like BG Salvi’s)
    12 oz noodles (preferably Amish-style), uncooked
    1 (12-oz jar) Alfredo sauce or white sauce
    salt and fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
    vegetable oil for deep frying
    bread crumbs (preferably Panko Japanese-style)

    Prepare noodles as directed on package; drain.

    Mix cooked noodles with Alfredo sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Spread evenly in an 8×8-inch square dish and refrigerate till quite firm.

    TO COOK:
    Heat oil for deep frying. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish.

    Cut the firm noodle mixture into 2-inch squares and roll each square in the bread crumbs.

    Deep-fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain and serve warm.

    Servings: 12

    I tried this recipe this past summer… it didn’t taste at all like Pasta Salvi (they put scallions and other stuff in theirs) AND it fell apart in the fryer. Kind of a bummer. I hope you have better luck!
