Pasta Emoji Ratings

A classic, nice simple sauce, would eat this no problem. Probably tastes pure and the kids would love it. 7/10

Fun, simple, but dangerously close to Mac n Cheese with that level of orange saturation. They would probably steal your labeled food from the fridge, simply shameful. Not sure what the purple spots are either, not sure if i’d eat this one. 5/10


Shameful, it appears to be a few noodles left on a plate, what a waste. Would not eat someone’s leftovers. 0/10

Elegant, simple, modern. Reminiscent of a pizza, which is a fresh new way to approach the subject. The stray noodle is a little worrying, but for the most part they’re a hardworking, well put together pasta. Would hang this up in my modern art gallery. 8/10

Not sure how to feel about this one. While the sauce is one of the best renditions I’ve seen, beautiful detail, the rest of the dish is lacking. The leaves look dangerous, like those delinquents that try to roll with the pure kids, but we’re onto them. I love the symmetry of the three noodles rising from the sauce, would eat them for sure. Not so sure about the rest. 6/10

Fake. This obviously canned pasta is trying to play itself off as genuine, unforgivable. While the taste is probably fine, a pasta you’d let your daughter hang out with, it doesn’t excuse the fact that it’s a filthy liar. would not eat for fear of my health. 2/10 

A very small noodle, good with young children, tries their best at all times. It has the perfect portion of sauce for such a tiny thing, and it deserves all it can get. I would eat this, but gently, as not to intimidate it. 9/10

Magnificent! Tasty! A real winner of a dish! The attention to detail and shading simply astonishes me. This dish is to die for, and the kind you’d bring home to your mother. Simply lovely, would definitely eat. 10/10

This is just abhorrent, not tasty at all. The choice of thick white noodles surrounded by a yellow liquid, while an interesting take, is incredibly inaccurate and tasteless. Would not eat, especially with that trident thing. 1/10

flavourless, an absolute bore of a dish. White I appreciate the detail of the cell shaded noodles, they lack charisma and courage. Would be a true pure friend, someone you can rely on, but very easily manipulated and a momma’s boy. Need’s more saturation if it want’s to roll with the big boys. 4/10. 

I feel like this is a failed attempt at what HTC excelled at. The abstract look they’re going for just doesn’t execute well at all. And that black border feel’s very threatening and hostile, as if I’m not allowed to eat it. The kind of pasta who has problems with it’s masculinity. Probably wouldn’t eat. 3/10

Why the fuck is there chocolate syrup on my pasta. 0/10

History Meme - Italian Version

[1/10] Assassinations - Strage di Capaci (Capaci’s Massacre), 23 May 1992.

On the 23rd of May 1992, on the Capaci’s junction of the highway A29, a few kilometers away from Palermo, a huge explosion killed the Italian Magistrate Giovanni Falcone, his wife Francesca Morvillo, and three of their body guards, Vito Schifani, Rocco Dicillo and Antonio Montinaro.

The attack was planned by the criminal organization Cosa Nostra, lead by the boss Totò Riina, who threw a party right after Falcone’s death.

Giovanni Falcone spent most of his life fighting the power of the Sicilian mafia. Thanks to his work, the first big trial against the mafia, known as the Maxiprocesso, could take place, between February 1986 and December 1987. The Maxiprocesso convicted 360 defendants, for a total of 2665 years of prison and 19 life sentences for the bosses.

Giovanni Falcone, along with his dear friend Paolo Borsellino, who was assassinated 57 days after Falcone, is considered a national hero and a symbol of the fight against the mafia.

“La mafia non è affatto invincibile. È un fatto umano e come tutti i fatti umani ha un inizio, e avrà anche una fine.”/”The mafia isn’t invincible. It’s a human phenomenon and thus, like all human phenomena it has a beginning, and it will also have an end.”

Bolognese sauce, in Italian as “ragù alla bolognese”, is a meat-based sauce from Bologna, customarily used to dress “tagliatelle al ragù” and to prepare “lasagne alla bolognese”. In the absence of tagliatelle, it can be used with other broad, flat pasta, such as pappardelle or fettuccine. Genuine ragù alla bolognese is a slowly cooked sauce. Ingredients include a soffritto of onion, celery and carrot, different types of minced or finely chopped beef, often alongside small amounts of fatty pork. Red wine and a small amount of tomato concentrate or tomatoes are added, the dish is then gently simmered at length to produce a thick sauce.

Outside Italy, the phrase “Bolognese sauce” often refers to a tomato-based sauce as pictured above to which mince beef or pork is added; such sauces typically bear little resemblance to ragù alla bolognese. Whereas in Italy ragù is not used with spaghetti, so-called “spaghetti bolognese” has become a popular dish in many other countries in spite of complaints against it as one of the “crimes against ragù.” 😀
