Pasta is a very simple thing too cook, most of the time at least, I have had some unfortunate pasta experiences, lol.The first thing I learned to cook was a salad. Lots and lots of russians salads. There are many and they come in a different variety and some of them are not so simple to pull off. Then I learned how to make potato latkes. I used to love to be in the kitchen with my mom trying to help her in anyway. I just picked it up naturally and can now cook any of the dishes I used to eat any times as a kid.

i love to cook but unfortunately i suck at it. hahaha. the first thing i learned to cook was rice and that was before rice cookers became popular in my town. i used to end up with lots of burned rice at the bottom of the pot

Curry chicken was my first learned dish. That time I cooked it for my "husband to be" at my rented place. Have improved and cooked a lot of variety of goof since we got married. And glad that he is enjoying my cooking.

I first learned to cook different dishes of eggs. Scrambled eggs, sunny side up and omelet. I learned it from school in our Home Economics class. It was pretty easy obviously lol! After learning, i did practice more at home. I can say i perfected it now. But that's just it. Other than frying, there's nothing else i can cook. I can't cook soup dishes or anything that takes a lot to prepare.

I think the first thing I learned to make was gravy, and Chili. My grandma said you'll always have something to eat, if you can make those at least..lol. I have to admit I still have a problem with gravy, sometimes its hard to tell how much liquid you need to put in it, it either comes out too thick or too thin, she never measured anything of course...haha.
