Did you know …

The three most popular kinds of pasta’ are Penne, Spaghetti, and Macaroni.
Pasta can be served in multiple ways. It can be mixed with a sauce, it can be stirred into soups or stews, and it can also be baked.
Dried pasta doubles in size when cooked and is often served with thick, hearty sauces.
The traditional Italian way of cooking pasta is known as ‘al dente’.
Most pasta falls under two categories, either dry or fresh.
