Pasta is rather comfortable food that can be eaten every day and it won’t be dull. Moreover, the most Italians stay hungry if the meal is without it. There are simple dishes like spaghetti with olive oil, chili, and garlic. But there are interesting multicomponent recipes with delicious products like lasagna, casserole and others. All of them are extremely tasty, healthy, and nutritious. And the pleasant advantage of pasta is a quick cooking process.
Once again you can use almost any sauces to serve with pasta and you won’t go wrong. We recommend using light sauces like tomato with long pasta and heavy sauces with short shapes. It is a meal in itself and you do not have to create something unusual in order to enjoy pasta. Besides, its different shapes can introduce a wide variety in daily menu. There are more than 600 shapes in Italy.
