I need this confirmed - using a spoon with your fork to eat spaghetti is an American invention and that real Italians would never think of doing.

Never used, nor did I ever see any of my Italian relatives use a spoon and fork with spaghetti. That's just absurd!!!

What Lee said. The only time we use a spoon is with pastina.

Fish and cheese?

Shellfish and cheese...hell yes!  If it's OK with Nick Stellino it's OK with me!
 
I just finished watching an episode of Jacques Pepin Heart & Soul and he put P-R on a shrimp & pasta dish, and told a story about ordering shellfish at an Italian restaurant and requesting cheese.  The angry chef came out of the kitchen wanting to know who would do such a thing, and when he found out his reaction was, "Oh, OK."

Well, he's French. It is to be expected. The French still won't admit they learned to cook from Italians.

And the Italians learned from the Chinese!

Whats Italian American, Olive garden! I've used a spoon when eating Spaghetti and meatballs. It was easier to throw the meatball at my brother with a spoon.

The Chinese invented everything...just ask Ming Tsai!
 
But seriously...why do Italians consider cheese on shellfish such a faux pas?  I'm quite convinced that Beverly Goldberg's Shrimp Parm could change their collective mind!!

I don't!!!!! Maybe because my mother is French? Or maybe because all pasta gets a dusting of parm?

My maternal grandparents came from Italy so I'm a full 1/2 Italian.  I use a spoon to twirl long pasta and put cheese on my linguine clams white.  Turn me in to the Polizia di Cucina.  I don't care.

They did a bolognese-style sauce tonight!  It was a lovely change. We had a nice cabernet to go with.
 

 



 
I wasn't in a rib mood, but now I wish I'd had one.

This is my friend's grandmother's version of pasta fazool, which we had last night. There is, of course, no single way to do this dish. Hers isn't even a soup, but a mix of penne, shells, cannellini beans, and ham shank, lightly tossed with tomato sauce.
 

 
... with more sauce on the side to add as you please.
 

 
Addictive. I could have eaten five bowls, but restrained myself to two. As with all such cooking, I felt privileged to have had it - and I told her so.

I am STUFFED.  I just had a $42 lunch, but I am droooooling over this thread.
My Pasta Fazoul looks nothing like that, but that's amazing.

My Mothers version is red sauce with onion and garlic, northern white beans and ditalini pasta, no meat.

Exactly the way my mom made it. I've tried variations with some success,even our favorite,white pasta fagiole, but your mom's and my mom's is the classic!!

Very similar recipe to mine.  I also put in spinach.  And when I don't feel like driving to Jungle Jim's to get ditalini, I use tiny shells.

I know that real Italian food is good stuff; and I have enjoyed it in a nice restaurant on occasion; but Italian-American food is pure comfort.   Lasagna, garlic bread, spaghetti and meatballs, St. Louis' own toasted ravioli, chicken parm, baked mostaccioli, sausage and peppers, oh my; I could go on and on...

Awhile back I posted this Nick Stellino clip in a different thread but I think it fits well here, too.
