Noodles & Snoodles

According to Google the word present in Italian is presente.  I think I can handle that one.  It’s pretty easy.  Or should I say easye?

For this presente you’ll need

  • A colander
  • dish towel(s)
  • box of noodles
  • jar of sauce
  • Italian seasonings
  • cooking utensils (optional)

The colander takes the place of a basket and the dish towels take the place of tissue paper!  Super simple!  Don’t forget your free download below!  Or belowe.

Note: After receiving a few emails about my incorrect Italian I have created a new gift tag.  This is Pasta Night 2.0.  Thanks for helping out my poor language skills!  : )

    “presente” means the present as in the here and now, “regalo” means present as in gift… just so you know :) love the post!

    Very cute idea, just an FYI–Bon is French, appetito is Italian. The Italian phrase is Buon Appetito.

    Apparently I should just leave the foreign languages to people who know what they are doing! There is a reason I studied sign language in high school, I didn’t have to speak it! Thanks for the clarifications, I will just stick to making corny gift baskets!

    Some see the rose, some see the thorns…see this as a “sign” Sweetie. Lovely Rose of a gift! I love it as something to give and I would certainly love it as a gift received.

  6. I think you need one more step in the instructions. Like, say, put the pasta back in the pan before adding the sauce. :) My hubby added the sauce while the noodles were still in the strainer right after we got married and left it there until we were ready to eat. Yeah…. :D

    presente… has a double meaning.. it means present as in gift and also as in here now.

    Love the idea. Can see it as a wedding shower gift or anniverary gift.

  10. Both words may deal with gift giving, presente, present means gifts, or objects given free without expecting something for return.
