Why exactly aren't you supposed to breaki spaghetti?

mom's

do you break penne? what about fusilli? no? so why would you break spaghetti?
>>
>>7326138
because fusilli and penne fit easily in the pot

shut up

is this bait? are you baiting me? you can't possibly be this retarded
>>7326154
"no"

why not just mash them with a hammer before putting them in the pot you pleb?

Yeah, they're two different types of noodles.

>>
>>7326179
What's the drawback?
>>
>>7326104

Because it takes extra effort. Boil water, tip spaghetti in pot.Stir after 2 mins. Leave to boil. Drain when ready. Eat.

Personally, it makes no difference. It' still coming out as a brown log and still tastes like pasta.
>>
I do it. Makes it easier to eat. Dunno what all these losers are whining about
>>
"Supposed to" is a matter of opinion.

I don't find it practical one way or another. If you cook the pasta correctly, they all have the same consistency.
>>
>>7326104
it won't twirl around on the fork and make that perfectly cohesive bite of pasta. you'll just have strands of scraggly noodles hanging off of your fork, ruining the texture.

spaghetti will soften quickly enough so you can just stir and press it down into the water without over/undercooking half of it
>>
>>7326356
Eating noodles with a fork. Not using chop sticks as Guanyin intended. Shameful.

Just get a spiralizer and eat zucchini noodles like a normal person.
>>
>>7326104
Because it's considered aesthetically pleasing. That's why it's made that length to begin with.

why use a fork when you can use a spoon and get a nice big blob of sauce and finely cut pasta?

next you'll be telling me you're not supposed to mix the pasta and sauce in the pot

hi.
>>
>>7327071
because a messy blob of pasta doesn't have as good of a texture as a cohesive twirling of long noodle strands

>next you'll be telling me you're not supposed to mix the pasta and sauce in the pot
of course you should do this, that's completely unrelated

Pic related, its you

Literal autism.

buy shorter pasta you idiot
>>
>>7326104

Okay, look, I realise I'm coming into this when the retard camps are both already in full swing, but there is an actual reason not to break spaghetti, linguine, &c.

When you snap it like in OP's pic you will tend to cause shock fracturing near the breakage point, or even cause multiple breakages. This results in small pieces of pasta adhering to the base of the pan more easily, which leads to more dissolved starch which leads to stickier pasta. If making a pasta sauce which benefits from a starchier surface this can be perfectly fine; most spaghetti sauces do not benefit from starchy surfaces though (especially in America, which most people on here probably are), so in general, breaking you pasta reduces the quality of your final dish.
>>
>>7326104
>Why exactly aren't you supposed to breaki spaghetti?
Because if you put spaghetti into boiling water and wait around a minute it will soften and fit into the pot anyhow. Basically, it's an autistic thing. If you like your spaghetti half size then go ahead and break it. I personally like it that way from time to time
>>
>>7326760
Holy shit, what a waste of money and storage space. But if you can afford and store it knock yourself out I guess.
>>
>>7326104
If sphaghetti was engineered to be eaten at half a length, it would be sold at a half a lengt you goddamn moron

I hate you. Die
>>
>>7327480
"no"
>>
if they were meant to be eaten in half, they'd fucking come in half.
>>
>>7326104
IT'S FUCKING EASIER TO EAT WHEN CUT IN HALF.

WHICH AUTSITS WILL THINK THAT MEANS YOU'RE A "BABY" IF YOU NEED IT SHORTER.

>>7327687
Why not buy corkscrew pasta if you're too fucking stupid/lazy to handle spaghetti?
I think that's actually a little cheaper too.
>>
>>7327738

They're called spirals you imbecile.

I actually break my spaghetti up into tiny little pieces.

Don't knock it until you try it, shit is way better.

What if he meant fusilli though
>>
You people are all morons, I'm not wasting a shit ton of money and water getting a pot large enough for a single serving of fucking spaghetti. maybe if you feed a full family like italians do you can afford to be a stuck up italian about it. as it stands I find it hard to believe any of you fucks have more than 1 child at best. more than half of you are probably cooking only for yourself as well.

When I worked as a lab tech for a university I would get boxes of these and rainbow rotini I would separate out all the green and yellow ones then I would use a green marker to give half of the yellow ones a strip. I would then take them outside and spread them out randomly on a lawn. The students would then act as "predators" and see how many of each pasta "worm" they could eat. We would then calculate the change in phenotype over the next generation to demonstrate natural selection. Needless to say after staining my hands green coloring hundreds of these things I can no longer eat them.

I had a professor demonstrate this but with candy.

Candy professor was rad.

And all that was left was fucking banana laffy taffy
>>
I guess this is the right thread to ask, would there be any benefit to slow cooking pasta in the oven?
>>
>>7326104
Because then it won't be long and flopping all over the place and flicking sauce in your face and just generally making a mess.
>>
>>7328862
It's Murrica baiting, because only Americans collapse the definitions like this.

why? who cares. it tastes the same, lad.

Why not break spaghetti too? You chop and cut and halve and trim most of your food anyway. That's like saying chopping asparagus or bread or sausage is wrong.
>>
>>7327506
I'd say they leave it up to you.
>>
>>7329738
>>7329780

The texture is different.

I'd say if you prefer the shorter noodles for some reason then why not break them.
