If only the potato was crushed and steamed; you might consider gnocchi pasta.

the difference between couscous and your ITALIAN CENTRIC definition of pasta is simply preparation. the ingredients are the same. gnocchi is made from an entirely different thing

It is pasta though! And campanelle is good, holds the sauce nicely.

no no no no, it is NOT like rice. Even if you don't consider it pasta, it's objectively closer to pasta than rice.

i know, but considering you can put what is essentially stew on top of it it functions more as a rice alternative to me

Iíve made gnocchi (though not for about ten years) and the preparation and cooking of them make them seem like pasta to me.

Plus, they have potato, but my memory is they have an equal part wheat flour. So ingredient wise itís pretty pasta-y.

If youíre not going to allow gnocchi then it seems odd that youíd allow tortellini, which is the same wheat flour base (pasta literally means paste) with other stuff added... is it the stage of preparation where the additional ingredients are added, that determine whether something is a pasta? Itís all getting a bit theoretical
