Pasta is a classic. Whether spaghetti, penne or ravioli, few homes go more than a week without a pasta dish. According to the International Pasta Organisation, over 13 million tons of pasta are produced every year around the world. As you might guess, Italy ranks highest in pasta production and consumption per capita, but the United States is second in production at 2 million tons, and highest overall consumption at 2.7 million tons. That amounts to 63 servings of pasta a year per person.
