Samantha's Dessert Island Food: Pasta. Ok, I'm not sure how I'm going to cook pasta on a desert island, but I'll find a way because I seriously can't go even a few days without eating pasta! I love the texture and find it's best when still a little chewy. I love spaghetti that sticks together and is even still a little crunchy. And you can pair with it anything!
