Lots of Italian Pasta

I'm in upstate New York and went to Price Chopper today. Did you know Rachel Ray started doing demos in Price Chopper? She's long gone and there were no demos today.

For fun I looked at dried pasta available in the pasta aisle. I took notes because there was so much available. Here's a partial list: tubetti, orecchietti, penne rigate, ziti, acini de pepe, melone, fusili bucati, gemelli, tri colore radiatore, orzo, cavatapi, campanelle, rotini, trumpets, stars, small shells, farfelle. Four different brands were available including types of organic, whole wheat and whole grain.

In addition there were several brands of sauces, tomatoes and beans. And in the deli they had lots of mozzarella, pecorino Romano, pasmesano and provoloe. I'm going to take some pasta home and experiment.
