My Aunt's Home-Made Pasta

One of my Aunts in Italy is a wonderful cook, preferring to make a lot of her food from scratch including ice cream. To be invited to a meal at her house is truly something. Not only does it taste fantastic but it looks great, too. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of any of her feasts with anti pasti of many cheeses, salamis, olives etc, or her several other courses. I only have this photo of her home-made  fettuccine being mixed with some lovely sauce, parmigiana at the ready for sprinkling.

Wow, yum! That looks good. Is mixing it on the surface instead of a bowl standard? Seems like it would be more evenly coated that way.

It's more the old fashioned way of doing it, same as eating polenta which has been spread directly on the table with the sauce on top and everyone eating from the outside and meeting in the middle - no plates involved. Sometimes people do this as a kind of 'doing it the rustic way' today.
