Pasta: Your Suppertime Superstar

Pasta is one of the most versatile foods you will ever find. What other dinner fare can be featured in a soup on Monday night, a salad on Tuesday night, a casserole on Wednesday night, with a hearty sauce on Thursday night, and with shrimp or clams on Friday night? And, no one will be tempted to say, “What? Pasta again tonight??” because of the seemingly endless varieties available and the numerous flavors and foods it pairs so well with. Pasta is happy to introduce itself as an appetizer, take center stage as the main course, linger contentedly as a side dish, or be completely disguised by a host of other more dramatic ingredients. It is usually served steaming hot, but is just as delicious cooked and then chilled in a salad. It can be dressed to the nines or served simply with melted butter and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Even the pickiest eaters usually find pasta to be a palate-pleasing winner, and kids usually enjoy the variety of fun shapes it comes in.
