Italian Food Survey: Favorite Pastas, Is Home Cooking Better?

It's Italian Food week, and some of the biggest debates over pasta, wine and celeb chefs are going to get settled right here. We surveyed 1,468 avid diners about their Italian eating habits and discovered that grandma's cooking may not always be the best. The results in the slideshow will answer all your questions: which Boot-cuisine celeb is the most popular? Which pasta is the most comforting? How much is too much to spend on a dish at a restaurant. Click through to see the winners and losers of our first ever Italian Food Survey, and sound off about the results in the comments.
