Depends on the kind of pasta.
Al-dente. I'm not eating crunch sticks or mush.
It all depends on the sauce and how its made.
For something like spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino, I like serving that on a plate. I usually put big shrimp in it. Its easy to get off the plate and into your mouth. Lasagna goes on a plate.
For a sauce with ground meat, I like serving that in a pasta bowl, as I find it impossible to get all the sauce goodness into one's mouth from a plate.
First thing I thought of.
Anyway, I like spaghetti and similar pastas Al-dente, but macaroni, ziti, etc...a little softer. Anything with a stuffing should also be a bit soft. Under-cooked pasta is too chewy and pasty. I find that worse than over-cooked pasta.
What kind of pasta are you putting in a bowl?
I haven't had Kraft dinner in years...
I should get some...
As to the question at hand, does it make a difference? It's not the plate or bowl I'm eating, after all.
