    Don't be silly.  There's far more to Italian food than that.  There are a huge number of sauces for pasta that don't involve tomatoes, and in any case, pasta is normally lunch and doesn't feature at dinner.  Plus pasta is more of a southern Italian thing.  In the north they eat more rice - ever heard of risotto?

    And what's all the capital letters for?

    Gee--in countries where tomatoes and pasta are not usual ingredients, do people know how to cook?

    It's called cuisine because it is a whole world of cooking. No, it's not just spaghetti. Come to think of it, maybe 90% of the pasta I've eaten IN Italy was not tomato based.

    Yes unlike many Americans who are barely proficient in putting 2 slices of 

    Wonder bread in-between peanut butter and jelly. What a gourmet lifestyle.

    Aside from what others have answered, think of all that wonderful fish.

      So, a thumb-down? You mean there isn't fish all round the Italian coast?

    I should think so because pasta was brought from China and tomatoes are a New World fruit, so there was a time when Italian cuisine had neither ingredient. Ancient Roman cookery would've had neither.
