View Full Version : Angel Hair & Marinara///Saladacco
09-20-2008, 01:16 AM
Can I just say...
I just tried the angel hair pasta and marinara recipe from Alissa's book. OMG, it was so good!!! And it filled me Right up (something I've had a hard time doing). Felt so satisfying - almost guiltily so! Love it, love it, highly recommend it!
Just wish I had a saladacco. Been all over town looking for one, to no avail. I'll have to buy one online, I suppose. I read some pretty horrendous reviews about the Joyce Chen one, though. Any experiences with different saladaccos, including the one in Alissa's store?
Look at that! You put up a pic.
I have the Joyce Chen one. I got it from Alissa, and I am very happy with it. I'm not sure if she always/still sells that particular one. In any case, I use it to make thinly slice cucumber salads, the famous zucchini pasta, and just to put a prettier touch on my salads.
I will say, there are some specifics that must be followed for it to work properly. And if they're followed, no problemo. I haven't seen them, but the bad reviews may be related to the small learning curve. :p

Eva - my mom surprised me with a joyce chen spiral slicer!! So sweet! So I tried it out last night, but failed miserably! There was no instruction sheet in the box - not sure if it usually has one - but I put it together and tried to make squash spaghetti... I saw the switch from slice to pasta, but either way, I couldn't make the pasta! It came out with little grooves, but none of them were separated into strands. I tried pushing down really hard, and not at all, all to no avail. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have a dud? I really want this to work!
(By the way, the pad thai ended up being great, anyway. The texture was off, but I added lots of spice to Alissa's sauce recipe - basil, cayenne, and some almond mylk. Plus my first mung beans sprouted, so I used those! It was so yum. I'm proud. :) )
LOL, yeah... it doesn't come with the instructions. So silly. Hmmm, trying to think. The tiny little thing that cuts the veggies (sorry for the horrific description here), you have to turn it and lock it in place one way or the other depending on what you want. It may not be locked in place?
