Dried Pasta....what happens after "sell by" date?

erica | Nov 17, 2006 07:51 PM

I have a bag of cut pasta from Puglia that I purchased in Italy a few years ago. It is now past its sell-by date by (gasp..) a few years. OK..three years. What exactly happens to dried pasta when it gets old? Should I throw this out, or can I use and just cook for a longer time? It is the tri-colored pasta that I thought was so cool when I bought it and now know better..that it loses its' color when cooked....
