Pasta is a popular food. In "Cousin Malleo", Malleo cooks pasta for Mario and Luigi . Unfortunatly Mario mistakes it for pizza. As Malleo puts it on the table Mario walks up to it saying "It's so beautiful." And then Mario screams out "OH, PIZZA!" and SLAMS his face into it. As the trio walk out of the kitchen Luigi says "Oh, Malleo, that was the best pasta I've ever had. Too bad Mario just had to wreck it with his big fat face." Mario exclaims that his big fat face made it better. Malleo takes that as an offence to all the Italians and it is illegal.
