I don't really see the apeal of it. All it is, is some pasta, some rotting meat, some tomato sauce, and some rubbery cheese melted over it. Most of the time it's either disgusting or really boring. It's also bitter. I must admit, pizza is pretty good, but pizza in a way is American. Also stofers lasangna is good too. Rather than that, its pretty much overrated.

I find American food bland. See you I did there?

#5 Posted by urdead18 (3630 posts) -

Why does it have to be rotting meat and rubbery cheese?

Italian food is incredible.

No. And if you think Stoufers lasagna is better than traditional home-made lasagna..then...no wait, you probably never tried traditional Italian foodand just ate at your local Olive Garden one time and just called off Italian foog all together.

Since Italy is a much older nation than America.. basically all the food origins here come from Europe anyways.. the only real traditional American foods would come from the Native Americans.. SO, that being said.. you don't know what you're talking about. And I'm convinced as long as something is from America you'd always think it's better based on your other posts. That's called ethnocentrism and it's not very beneficial to yourself and a collective society.

I'd rather have a nice jucy steak, burger, or nice rack of ribs over a plate of pasta any day.

Italy has a pretty long history. So their food range is pretty wide. I disagree.

Not really, on the other hand I think French and Mexican food are overrated.

I love Italian Cuisine. I don't see how food can be boring.

You just insulted pizza, spaghetti, and fettuccine alfredo. You are now my enemy.

#16 Posted by PistolGripPump (199 posts) -
Alright - to put this into perspective, think about the relatively cheap price of the ingredients. Say you make a sauce with beef, tomato sauce, normal noodles, and a red pepper. This not only provides a good amount of food groups, but it's a considerable amount cheaper than anything that provides comparable nutritional value. Not only this, but you can freeze the sauce and save it for later if you make a HUGE batch of it. Plus, Mario is Italian. Therefore he must eat it, which means it must be awesome. I appreciate it largely when I live on my own, I'm sure others can vouch for this?

#19 Posted by AtlanticRock (8122 posts) -

I love italian food, you need to have REAL Italian food made by REAL Italians. Their food is incredible.

My #1 will always be Haitian food, followed by Mexican & Italian.

For conversations sake we will say half Japanese, half Italian... Just so it provides some credibility towards the whole 'pro pasta' argument. :)

I was going to say you've probably just had terrible Olive Garden-ish Italian food, but hearing you sing the praises of Stouffer's frozen lasagna, I think that you just have really bad taste :(

Nah, I have Italian food and I have the fish, I am a pescetarian. In my opinion it is not bitter. Pizza is pretty boring if you ask me. A bit of bread some tomato sauce and some cheese. I don't even consider pizza italian.

Do you not have a tongue or something??? The fact that you are considering Stouffer's lasagna Italian food should have told me something was wrong, but how can you say that Italian food tastes bad? Have you ever actually had Italian food or are you judging based on the Olive Garden and Stouffer's?

For the record, pizza is Mediterranean in origin. The first pizzas predate contact with the Americas by centuries. These pizzas didn't have tomato sauce (no tomatoes), but had basically every other element of what we now know as pizza. Pizza with tomato sauce then developed in Italy before coming to America.

Again, if "Stouffer's lasagna" is what you consider Italian food, you have absolutely no idea what Italian food is.

megahaloman64

italian pizza kills america. your talking about stofers when your talking about italian food? also there is much more to their food than just pasta. have you ever been to a good Italian restaurant? and I dont mean olive garden. i mean somewhere where the main course is 25-30 dollars.

i smell a lot of ignorance and lack of knowlege. someone that actually knew enough about Italian food would not mention stoufers nor think pizza is in a way american.

go to a coulinary school and the two countries quisine that are taught the most are french and italian. there is a reason why those two countries are associated with gormet food.

go to a italian restaurant and get viel. if your opinion does not change, then you just might have terrible taste in food.

A. the portions are not " small ass" B. " quality burger for 3" you pretty much just proved that your taste in food is bad, if you think that a 3 dollar fast food burger, is "quality"
