    Noodle is an broad term in the same way that meat is a broad term, whereas pasta is a term for noodles made specifically from durum wheat. The author also thinks that spaghetti is just the word for Italian pasta, when in reality spaghetti is a specific type of pasta. There’s no such thing as angel hair spaghetti, it’s called “Capellini.”

    NEVER put olive oil in the water to cook pasta. Some people say it prevents the pasta sticking together in the pan. By doing this, it coats the pasta in oil and prevents it from absorbing the sauces, thus it doesn’t taste as good. To prevent pasta from sticking together in the pan, bring the water to the boil, then add the pasta (not the water to the pasta) and swish the pasta round with a wooden spoon for a few seconds. The correct way is to add salt to the pasta water.

    This article is less about the differences of the ingredients themselves and more about the difference in serving them. Quite honestly I’m disappointed – everyone knows how spaghetti is served – and if they’re here looking at this comparison they also know how noodles are served. Thus this article is completely off the mark and it wouldn’t be far from the truth to say – useless.

    I agree. This article didn’t answer the question.
