Pasta is the second most popular Italian dish in India (pizza remains the first) and we can't agree to it more. It is, in fact, the only food that can give pizza a good run for money. By now, we all must have made pasta at home dozens of time. But whenever we think of making pasta, we instantly resort to store-bought packets.
