Etymology: From pasta, from pasta, from παστά, from παστός
Pasta is a type of noodle and is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine, with the first reference dating to 1154 in Sicily. It is also commonly used to refer to the variety of pasta dishes. Typically pasta is made from an unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water and formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked and served in any number of dishes. It can be made with flour from other cereals or grains, and eggs may be used instead of water. Pastas may be divided into two broad categories, dried and fresh. Chicken eggs frequently dominate as the source of the liquid component in fresh pasta. Most dried pasta is commercially produced via an extrusion process. Fresh pasta was traditionally produced by hand, sometimes with the aid of simple machines, but today many varieties of fresh pasta are also commercially produced by large scale machines, and the products are broadly available in supermarkets. Both dried and fresh pasta come in a number of shapes and varieties, with 310 specific forms known variably by over 1300 names having been recently documented. In Italy the names of specific pasta shapes or types often vary with locale. For example the form cavatelli is known by 28 different names depending on region and town. Common forms of pasta include long shapes, short shapes, tubes, flat shapes and sheets, miniature soup shapes, filled or stuffed, and specialty or decorative shapes.
A type of food.
Pasta is very tasty and fulfilling food.

There's no shame in just doing the small things every day to just get you through those moments... you don't have to feel like you're setting yourself up to knock down the biggest thing you could possibly imagine, for me it's been little things. Instead of trying to write a whole song, just try and think about one line. I haven't done a lot of cooking, maybe I can learn to make pasta today and see if I can look up how to boil water and do that. And all those little baby steps lead to realizing that you're accomplishing quite a bit.
But they left in the cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves that make it taste so unique. And they still served it over pasta.
Since I was a kid I was Massimo Bottura -- I was escaping from my older brother under the table in the kitchen and from down there, where my grandmother was defending me, in the meantime she was rolling pasta, i was looking at the world from another point of view. It's what we do in Osteria Francescana every day.
It was black bean pasta with almonds and turmeric chunks and I was like' I'm not eating that, it's disgusting,'.
