Vegetarian Vermicelli -Fideo Pasta bowl.


I really enjoy pasta and find that it is a staple in my families meals. There are so many varieties in many different shapes and sizes. A few of my favourites are the classic spaghetti (cord shape), penne rigate (quills), tagliatelli (ribbon pasta), farfale (bow ties), vermicelli (thin hair like pasta), Fideo Vermicelli  (cut small cord shape pasta) and rotini (spiral pasta).

Different pastas serve different purposes, some with ridges coat thick sauces better, the smoother pasta are great for creamy sauces. One of my favourite quick pasta dish is Fideo Vermicelli, it cooks in a short time and is perfect stir fried with seasonal vegetables. This is one dish that features in my meal planner every week. Its great hot or cold and packs well for lunch. In the picture below you can see the texture of this Vermicelli Fideo pasta.
