In today’s carb-fearing, grain-demonizing, gluten-free world, pasta may just be one of the most vilified foods of all. It’s shunned, avoided, and—when actually consumed—often accompanied by a side of guilt. “Why is there so much shame around PASTA,” writer Lauren Duca recently tweeted. Hers was a rhetorical question, of course, but it garnered thousands of likes. The shame, it seems, is real.
Which is silly. Because as we all know, pasta is damn delicious. One of life’s small pleasures!
