The most basic pasta dishes only require pastamastery to create, offering quick and easy access to solid food options by cooking dry noodles with one other ingredient. These all take only 1 adventure to cook (without the chef-in-the-box or another method of free crafting). Although these are generally weaker than more advanced dishes, those also require more skills, adventures and resources to cook. This makes these dishes perfect for aspiring adventurers with few to no skills learned, ensuring reasonable adventure and substat gains for little investment. They are primarily Good quality food dishes, while the best three dishes with the highest level requirements are Awesome quality.

The 4 fullness dishes primarily have ingredients easily found in early locations such as The Bat Hole and Cobb's Knob, making them easy to access early on. They give an average of 12 adventures (3 per fullness), and offer 20-30 substats in a targeted stat per dish consumed. Covering 12 of one's typical 15 fullness, one will need some other foods or a smaller pasta dish to supplement this diet. Interestingly, the dishes with a lower level requirement are the ones with slightly better substat yields (20-30 vs 20-25). The one exception of these, pr0n m4nic0tti, is an old recipe made from an ingredient only obtainable after completing the level 9 quest, and offers slightly worse adventure yields than the other comparable pasta dishes listed here.

The better basic pasta dishes are cooked with ingredients found during the level 7 and level 9 quests, and at 5 fullness, three of these can fully cover your diet for the day. Pasta cooked with ingredients found from The Cyrpt yield 16-19 adventures (3.5 adventures per fullness) and 20-30 substats gains for a targeted stat, while pasta that uses ingredients from The Highlands yield 18-22 adventures (4 adventure per fullness) and 25-30 substats gains for one stat. An interesting exception is the ghuol guolash, which can be potentially obtained directly from the gluttonous ghuol in The Cyrpt without the need to cook them, or even have Pastamastery at all.

The 3 fullness noodles are largely old & defunct recipes, offering mediocre adventures & stat gains (often less than 3 adventures per fullness), while having primary ingredients that are generally out of the way and inconvenient to obtain. While a couple dishes like delicious noodles and painful penne pasta have ingredients easily acquired from npc stores, their gains remain inferior to more recently implemented dishes, from which the ingredients are likely to be obtained while questing anyway.

Advanced Dishes

Advanced reagent dishes require sauces made with the Advanced Saucecrafting skill and scrumptious reagents.

There are a variety of saucey noodle dishes that can be made, the ingredients for most come from a variety of adventuring location, of varying stats as well as availability. They will all require 2 adventures to cook (without the chef-in-the-box or another method of free crafting).

The 4 fullness dishes are made with ingredients found in the Copse of the Deep Fat Friars, and are easiest to acquire thanks to their convenience. They offer low, balanced stat gains but the lowest adventure gains (3.125 per fullness).

The 5 fullness dishes are made with ingredients from Mt. McLargeHuge. They offer medium stat gains towards a single stat and moderate adventure gains (3.7 per fullness), but the ingredients are available somewhat later and generally aren't convenient to acquire (particularly since any goat cheese is likely used for the Mt. McLargeHuge Quest). Three of these will fill your stomach with ease (four with Stomach of Steel).

There are some 6 [[fullness] dishes that have somewhat unusual availability (primarily Cobb's Knob Kitchens, which is rather out of the way), but offer the strongest stat and adventure gains (4.08 per fullness) with a fairly low level requirement. Those with access to the Degrassi Knoll Mushroom Fields can grow multiple Knob mushrooms by the second day of an ascension, offering a convenient way to cook one of the two dishes en mass. You will need other foods to supplement this diet, however, due to the inevitable leftover stomach space.

As these are all saucy foods, they benefit from the Saucemaven skill; with this skill learned, they will yield an additional 5 adventures as a Pastamancer or Sauceror, while other classes will get an additional 3 adventures.

One exception is the spaghetti con calaveras, which has the same yields as the other 6 fullness dishes, but requires learning the recipe from the April Shower. Those with access to the Gno-Mart can purchase a marzipan skull to cook this with relative ease.

Another exception is the haunted Hell ramen, an improved Hell ramen that also provides a useful buff. Those with access to the Voting Booth are sometimes able to fight the angry ghosts that drop the necessary ghostly ectoplasm to make this dish.

Lo Mein Dishes

Lo mein dishes require a stir-fry (a basic component cooked with a secret blend of herbs and spices), and unlike hi mein dishes, don't require MSG to be prepared.

Lo meins are the lower tier of the two meins. They can be cooked using Pastamastery by cooking dry noodles with a first-tier stir fry (the base ingredient cooked with a secret blend of herbs and spices). With access to the Mushroom Fields, the mushroom lo meins are superior to most non-savory pasta dishes, especially since the mushrooms only cost 30-50 meat (and a day). It does, however, require two adventures to cook instead of one (without the chef-in-the-box or another method of free crafting), as well as access to spices for the base stir-fry.

Other Uses

History

  • Prior to rollover on June 14th 2006, dry noodles could also be used with the standard "cook" command to make chow mein dishes. However, since rollover on that day, chow mein dishes require access to The Wok of Ages in The League of Chef-Magi.
  • After February 25, 2008, lo mein dishes no longer required The Wok of Ages to cook.
  • Prior to an update July 7, 2015, dry noodles were used for Transcendental Noodlecraft dishes.
