comment What meats can I serve medium rare and why?
@rumtscho Trichina spiralis worms are not specific to pigs, they can also live in humans, bear, rodents, and horses. The majority of known trichinosis cases in the US over the past 5 years have been due to consumptions of undercooked game (mostly bear), not pig.

comment Looking for a specific type of pasta to go with pesto
@MarkE The problem with using thin noodles with thicker sauces is that you lose the textural difference. One pasta that has become more commonly available in supermarkets that has a substantial texture and works well with pesto is orecchiette.

comment Looking for a specific type of pasta to go with pesto
@Alex MarkE is right in about surface area. Angel hair pasta has a surface area to volume ratio of about 4.5 whereas a wide flat noodle like Tagliatelle is more in the 2.8 range. Thicker pastas have even lower ratios.

comment What causes dutch oven flavor?
Can you be more specific/descriptive about the flavor you are interested in? Do you taste it in all types of food cooked in your dutch oven? Do you taste it in foods baked in the dutch oven?

comment What causes dutch oven flavor?
The item in the picture you have posted is called a cauldron in the US and would be used mostly for stewing. In addition to the differences noted by @saltface, a dutch oven/camp oven has a flat bottom which makes it a little more versatile, useful for braising, stewing, frying, and baking.
