Btw, i just found out on friday that it's not just me!
I was in the supermarket, and i saw that the aisle with all the different
types of pasta, and pasta sauces, and similar stuff was labled
_macaroni_.  So then i looked at the boxes, and every one of the
different types of pasta made by the companies "San Giorgio" and
"Ronzoni" had something along the lines of 'an enriched macaroni product'
written in small letters on the carton, somewheres near the name of the
actual type of pasta itself.
