    Building a hut (or similar structure) out of pizza, it's possible, but from pasta? No, I don't like that thought at all.

    and its rotten at that, tastes like plastic

    Ironically the only thing worse than the pizza is the pasta. Good luck digging themselves out of that hole ...

    They're quick off the mark, I see.

    My local "Pizza Hut" is already a "Pasta Hut".

    Am I missing something, or does this completely kill their delivery business? I mean, i can see meself ringing out fora pizza, but can't imagine phoning for a quick Spaghetti Carbonara of a Friday evening. Delivery/Takeaway only really works when it's something that's a pain in the hole to do yourself, and pasta isn't.

    Well it aint too hard to put a frozen pizza in the oven.

    Will they still be doing pizzas then?

    Am i missing something, or have you got that the wrong way round?

    Spaghetti Carbonara's a pain in the hole to do yourself. Pizza isn't. And there's very few places you can get a good pasta delivered.

    Eh?
    Are you trying to make your own pasta or something?

    Spaghetti carbonara is one of the easist things in the world. Now if you had said, making your own tortellini I would have understood...

    I agree, I know loads of pizza takeaways but don't think I know anywhere I'd get a good pasta one. This new venture could be a succcess I think. And pizza is handier to make at home than pasta.

    But did pizza hut in belfast even deliver? I know the one on the dublin road was collection only

    For years, I've thought that there would be money to be made selling pasta late in the evenings from a special takeaway.

    You'd only need a selection of pasta types and sauces prepared and kept hot. Splish splosh: ladle them into a polystyrene dish; add a plastic spork; hand them to the punter.

    Six pasta shapes and six sauce/filling flavours give 36 combinations and the illusion of a wide choice.

    people late in the evenings dont want pasta. its usually drunk chavs wanting a kebab hence the 20000 kebab shops in botanic area
  21. avatar DontPetABurningDog
    Any of yer standard pasta dishes are handy as hell to do, barring you're making your own pasta. Sure carbonara's only eggs, cheese and a bit o' bacon with some spaghetti. Fry up the bacon, then toss in slightly wet boiled pasta, two well beaten eggs, a dab of butter and a good gobbet of pecorino, and swirl it about a bit. Grind on a bit of black pepper.

    Even handier. Some well shredded garlic and chili, lightly sweated in light olive oil, bung in the cooked spaghetti (or linguine, better in this job, I reckon) and a bit of good oil and mix it up a bit. Even the most handless creater could have it boxed off in ten minutes.

    Making a half decent pizza's going to take the thick end of an hour, by the time the dough proves and all.

    It's about having decent fresh stuff, cooked lightly and quickly, and served without delay. All things which won't be happening in Pasta Hut.

    Diversifying from overprized pizza into overpriced pasta... as long as there's Little Italy, I'll continue to get my pseudo-Italian takeaway from the same place I always did.

    pizza hut has never ITALIAN pizza. it was just a pizza.
