Pasta is the ultimate crowd pleaser. Fulfilling, kid-friendly and oh-so-tasty, it’s a meal-time staple that, when cooked right, can make you sing with joy.
The best part about pasta is how broad and versatile it can be. It can be homey or gourmet. It can be healthy or super indulgent. The shapes and sizes are endless — ranging from bowties to penne to noodles and gnocchi — and dressing your pasta is limited only by one’s own creativity, so there’s simply no reason not to love it.
