preferred pasta sauce:
honestly personally we like to have a mixture of at least two of the (serious) option. pesto goes well with either red sauce or white sauce, and red and white mix together well too. and then you can just mix all three of them if you want that too!
honestly i feel like alfredo sauce plus soy sauce might actually be possible to make work, but you'd need to know what you're doing and get the mixture just right
okay who voted ketchup and was that a serious answer or a joke
it's fine if it was a serious answer, i just included that as a joke and wasn't expecting anyone to actually pick it
@Felthry of the choices here, good ol red
@Galuade this implies you'd pick something not listed here; what would you go with? (we'd go with a mixture, but i didn't want to make the poll super long)
@Felthry one of the chains has this jalapeno white sauce that is 👌
@Felthry I dont really know what kind of sauce it is other than "its white and a little bit spicy" but mmmmmmm
@Galuade ooh, that does sound promising
my guess would be an alfredo base with jalapeño and probably also other seasonings, probably garlic at least
@Felthry looking at whats in alfredo sauce and yeah you're probably right
https://beesbuzz.biz/food/3512-Sous-vide-black-garlic is how I went about fermenting garlic over the course of 45 days or so.
@Felthry When I was a kid I didn't like tomato sauce, so I would have spaghetti with just butter on it and it was fucking great. Nowadays I usually do some sort of tomato sauce mix plus hamburger and a bit of garlic/onion, or I have this spinach spaghetti that I mix in olive oil and add garlic and other seasonings and it turns out great. Both are nice for different palates
@Felthry Oh and also I always put butter on as well if I'm doing tomato sauce pasta. Salted butter flavor is an addiction lol
@Felthry I voted pesto... but in complete honesty, I've grown to prefer curry as a sauce.
@JulieSqveakaroo Interesting idea! Like a garam masala based sauce or something? or just, actual curry, meat and vegetables and all?
Some tikka masala, or some spinach paneer over noodles is great!
@Felthry On the topic of seemingly-joking-but-actually-serious answers, I know people who say mayo on pasta is really good. Never tried it myself, though!
@Felthry ...honestly, been trying to figure out what our answer to this is and i'm not sure we really... have one? its been so long since we've even really had any pasta, actually, let alone a situation where there was a choice of sauce (like making it)
@Felthry voted for "red sauce" but serious answer is "chili" - 🦊
