Pasta is my favorite type of food. I love it because it is easy to make, and when made the right way it is usually delicious. It goes well with chicken, which is my favorite protein. You can flavor it the way you like with many varieties of sauces. If you like spicy then you can season it with spicy pasta sauce or if you don't you can have a mild and sweet sauce.
Pasta originates from the Shang dynasty in China betweeen 1700 and 1100 BC. Not from Italy as everyone thinks or associates it with. Now however it is a key staple in Italian cusine since 1154 in Sicily.
