Pasta is a general term for foods made from an unleavened dough of wheat or buckwheat, flour and water, sometimes with other ingredients such as eggs and vegetable extracts.
Pastas include noodles in various lengths, widths and shapes, and varieties that are filled with other ingredients like ravioli and tortellini. The word pasta is also used to refer to dishes in which pasta products are a primary ingredient. It is usually served with sauce.
There are hundreds of different shapes of pasta with at least locally recognized names. Examples include spaghetti (thin rods),maccheroni (tubes or cylinders), fusilli (swirls), and lasagne (sheets). Two other noodles, gnocchi and spätzle, are sometimes considered pasta. They are both traditional in parts of Italy.
Pasta is categorized in two basic styles: dried and fresh. Dried pasta made without eggs can be stored for up to two years under ideal conditions, while fresh pasta will keep for a few days under refrigeration. Pasta is generally cooked by boiling.
Pasta is usually found in the pasta section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.

This was excellent - I had to add in a few button mushrooms because I didn't have enough portobello's but I don't think it altered the flavor too much. My whole family (including my 3 year old) loved it. I served it over spaghetti that I had whipped up earlier in my pasta machine. It was a very quick and easy dish to prepare that would easily be worthy of company...bravo!
