If you really want to make a friend,
go to someone's house and eat with him...
the people who give you their food give you their heart.

The abstract ‘pasta’ winds its way from stylized racks of drying pasta in the Harris/D’Amato’s yard to platters in the Louthen’s. Tendrils of pasta lines wander up the trees that lead from one family’s home to the other.
