Pasta is a Italian food which is similar to noodles or staple food . Usually I use penne pasta which is cylindrical in shape.
There are different varieties to cook pasta. It only depends on the sauce we use. We can use red sauce, green pesto sauce. These sauce can be prepared at home else we get in market.
