*Pasta* is a type of noodle and is a staple food^[1] of traditional Italian
cuisine, with the first reference dating to 1154 in Sicily.^[2] It is also
commonly used to refer to the variety of pasta dishes. Typically pasta is
made from an unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water and
formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked and served in any number
of dishes. It can be made with flour from other cereals or grains, and eggs
may be used instead of water. Pastas may be divided into two broad
categories, dried (/pasta secca/) and fresh (/pasta fresca/). Chicken eggs
frequently dominate as the source of the liquid component in fresh
pasta.^[/citation needed/]

Most dried pasta is commercially produced via an extrusion process. Fresh
pasta was traditionally produced by hand, sometimes with the aid of simple
machines,^[3] but today many varieties of fresh pasta are also commercially
produced by large scale machines, and the products are widely available in
supermarkets.

Both dried and fresh pasta come in a number of shapes and varieties, with
310 specific forms known variably by over 1300 names having been recently
documented.^[4] In Italy the names of specific pasta shapes or types often
vary with locale. For example the form /cavatelli/ is known by 28 different
names depending on region and town. Common forms of pasta include long
shapes, short shapes, tubes, flat shapes and sheets, miniature soup shapes,
filled or stuffed
