I think that's a common misconception, Italian food has a wide variety of ingredients. They use more seafood then some other cultures. I'm pretty sure that pasta was invented in China and brought to Italy later on. Food in general is important in Italian culture, and they usually have many courses of all sorts of food especially during occaisions like Christmas.

You can thank Marco Polo for this enfatuation with pasta the Italians have. It was he who started it all back in the very late thirteenth century when he visited China and brought back the recipe for pasta and the early form of pizza.

Because, it's just a part of our culture! We love it.. most italians do anyway! It can be eaten with pretty much anything and cooked with such a wide variety of ingredients! Pasta is amazing and I have to admit that I eat it about 5 times a week... Pasta for italians is like noodles for the chinese or cod fish for the portuguese.. Not everyone likes it, but it's part of the culture and most people eat it! Long live pastaaaa hehe

They don't. Its a stereotyped view. That would be like saying all British sit around all day in suits, smoking pipes and drinking tea. Which they don't (I know as I'm half English and have lived there most of my life); or like saying all Americans are Homer Simpson - sitting around all day eating burgers and pizza. Anyway Italian food is much nicer than food in the rest of the world. All (well most) Italian food is made with really high quality ingredients (and by Italian food i mean food you get in Italy, not from a restaurant in Chicago which serves Pizza and Pasta).
