Greek pasta is closely related to the traditional cuisine and has a strong local character.

Italians are not the only people who love pasta. The Greeks use pasta frequently in their cuisine and serve it with different sauces and with different meat and vegetable dishes. The pastas most used, aside from regular spaghetti, are long macaroni, manestra, hilopites and elbow macaroni. Italian-made pasta may have the reputation for the best quality, but excellent quality pasta is made in Greece, also. The best pasta is made from hard, durum wheat that is yellow in color and has a shiny texture. The Greeks are fond of pasta. They enjoy a fine light spaghetti with a mild butter sauce as well as one well spiked with garlic butter sauce—macaroni and Feta cheese or their delightful Mizi- thra (cottage cheese) sprinkled with a tablespoon or two of Parmesan. Tiny bits of pasta are used as a filler in sauces to adorn squid and fish. When the Greeks make their own macaroni,they make it in squares.
