We all love it. Even if someone says they don’t…they secretly do. It’s too multifaceted not to love. It comes in too many shapes and sizes not to love. There are too many sauce choices to go with it, not to love.
You can serve it as a side dish. You can serve it as the main entree. You can eat it out of a bowl. You can eat it on a plate.

Pasta is very versatile. It can be used as either a main entree or as a side dish. We would not recommend using it as both in the same meal. Example: Spaghetti and Meatballs with a side of Macaroni & Cheese would be a bad combination.

There are many different types of sauce to add to your pasta from Tomato to Alfredo.
