Pasta is made from flour mixed with eggs or water, formed into various shapes and then cooked by boiling or baking. From research we conducted, we found that nearly two thirds of British families are consuming pasta at least once a week – that’s so much spaghetti it’s the same distance it takes to travel to the moon and back!
