Pasta Industry Outlook:

Pasta, a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine, is a type of noodle typically made from an unleavened dough of wheat flour mixed with water or eggs. It is formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked by boiling or baking. Pasta is a versatile food, integral to many culinary traditions around the world, and it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, each suited to different kinds of dishes. The two broad categories of pasta are dried (pasta secca) and fresh (pasta fresca). Dried pasta, made without eggs, can be stored for longer periods and is a common pantry staple. Fresh pasta, often made with eggs, has a shorter shelf life and a tender, more delicate texture. There are over 300 specific forms of pasta, each with a unique name and often associated with regions of Italy. Examples include spaghetti, penne, lasagne, and ravioli.

Pasta's versatility is reflected in the countless ways it can be prepared, from simple dishes with light sauces to more elaborate preparations involving various ingredients like meats, vegetables, cheeses, and herbs. It's a popular choice due to its ease of cooking, ability to blend well with other flavors, and nutritional value, providing carbohydrates and, when made with eggs, protein.
