eggs, olive oil or water, that has been formed into a dough then made into
noodles or sheets and cooked in boiling liquid. Italy has over 350
different types of pasta shapes and sizes.
Pasta is made either by extrusion, where the ingredients
are forced through holes in a plate known as a die, or by lamination, in
which dough is kneaded, folded, rolled to thickness, then cut by slitters.

Most people today like pasta because of its easy and fast
preparation, as well as tastiness. Pastas only need to be boiled and
topped, a process that can take as little as fifteen minutes.
