I like them both, but I suppose pasta would have to win out because I'm not very good at cooking rice, and my family prefers pasta because of the variety of things I do with it. I tend to like my rice plain with soy sauce, but I make tons of different sauces for my pastas!

I like both, but I think I like pasta a little better over rice. We usually eat at least one dish of each every week with our dinner. Sometimes I make homemade dishes, but sometimes I "cheat" and use Rice A Roni or Pasta Roni.

I usually prefer pasta, it is so good-tasting with a lot of other things, but what can I do about "risotto"? I think it is one of my favourite meals...

I love both but prefer my mom's homemade pasta. It's so delicious and the perfect texture.

all meal serving of rice in our family . .. . rice the staple food that be serve together with other dish made from either pork , fish , chicken , beef & vegetables . though we cook pasta sometimes but still we have rice servings for main meal then we can eat pasta alone with bread only for snacks or when diet means light meal.

I like both rice and pasta. Rice is our staple diet and we have rice atleast for 2 meals in a day. Pasta I began to eat only after coming to the US where there are authentic Italian restaurants.

I prefer rice, probably because I am more used to it. Although I am very fond of pasta, especially spaghetti. I just like rice better.

Why compare the two? Both are for different type od meal... Rice is for hard meals and pasta is for lighht ones.. I will go for both.. I am a good eater of rice... In 3 major meals, While spaghetti and pasta for special meals...
