Today, I can post photos!! But also I forgot to mention the Mafalde connection with Argentinean comics. There is a wonderful old comic strip named "Mafalda" that resembles Peanuts a lot but with a lefty bent. The title is also the name of its really smart 6 year-old main character. Mafalda's creator is a genius called Quino (pronounced KEY-know). I don't know if they have translated Mafalda into English but they do have the Italian version! At left, you see the package of Mafalde (plural of Mafalda) pasta.
and here, the finished dish sans parmesan.
And now, I've got to get me some lunch. Bon appetit, everybody!
