    I feel like the amateur was trying to make herself seem like an expert, and I appreciate that, but then the other guys come in like doing all these fancy techniques.

    I was taught to add the oil because it was supposed to prevent sticking. But then I DID always wonder why the sauce went right thru the spaghetti. glad I watched the video then.

    My spaghetti and meatball recipe:
    1) Put pre-made pasta in boiling water with salt
    2) take it out and put canned tomato sauce
    3) put pre-made meatballs heated up
    There you go!

    Level 5 in Italy there is no such a thing as pasta&meatballs as well as pineapple in pizzas or flying unicorns... we would have a good plate of pasta and a second one of meatballs with a delicious tomato sauce... possibly with no orange flavour...

    I absolutely adore the look of Lorenzo's meatballs. His dish, to me, was the most beautiful, and I think I just developed a massive crush on him. He is SO handsome and his smile and laughter makes me smile and laugh. My favorite out of all three chefs (considering the flavors and texture of the sauce and noodles) would have probably been Frank's. The only thing that gave me pause about Frank's meatballs was the veal. I don't know about that. I've never tasted it before so I can't really speak on it. I really liked listening to Ms. Estella's explanations as she cooked because they had a lot to do with her mother. That was sweet.

    Water boils less fast if you salt it becasue it increases the boiling point..

    • Nornocci Mandarine
      Nornocci Mandarine 2 days ago

      My thought was that pasta doesn't "care" about whether the water is boiling or not, it just needs to be at the boiling temperature. If you add salt, or not, it will reach 100 degrees Celcius at the same time.

    Is no one going to mention the fact that the level 2 cook, Lorenzo, stuck in a whole chunk of Parmesan cheese into his sauce and didn't even bother to cut it up or shred it so that it would actually dissolve into the sauce? And it was still there at the end!

    I say to bring it up a notch to make your own freshly made pomodoro tomato sauce, no cans. When we came from Europe (my family and I) anything canned was rarely if every used. Boil the tomatoes to get the skin off (i still do that) and make your own sauce.
