About pasta

We have penne, linguine, cavatelli
Cooked al dente or alla Bolognese
Maybe farfalle, or mostaccioli
With butter and parmesan cheese

I like spaghetti alla carbonoara
Um, the bacon or ham in the cream
Don't have meat? then marinara
Watch when draining… Hot Steam

Baked ziti, filling and delicious
Lasagna, with sausage and ricotta
Most pasta dishes are nutritious
Just enjoy but don't eat a lotta

Gnocchi is the hard one to pronounce
A small potato and flour dumpling
Couscous, Moroccan, I must announce
Is too small for folding or rumpling

Pasta, pasta, comes in many forms
Did I forget udon and rice noodles?
Pasta, a favorite food in college dorms
Your next meal, try oodles and oodles
