Pasta is very versatile. One of the main reasons why I like pasta is because there are so many types of pasta. They come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes even varies by color. As they come in different types, there are many dishes that can be made using pasta. So the possiblities are endless.
Pasta is one of America’s favorite foods. In 2000, 1.3 million pounds of pasta were sold in American grocery stores. If you lined up 1.3 million pounds of 16 oz. spaghetti packages, it could circle the Earth’s equator almost nine times! -http://www.ilovepasta.org/public/fun-facts
