assorted pasta (such as bow ties, wheels and spirals)
Crisco for deep frying
seasoned salt


In a large saucepan, cook the pasta in boiling, salted water until tender, yet firm, about 10 minutes. If desired, keep the various shapes of pasta separate while cooking and frying. Drain the pasta very thoroughly. Fry pasta, a few pieces at a time, in deep Crisco heated to 365°. Fry until pasta is golden, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper toweling. Immediately sprinkle generously with seasoned salt. Serve warm or cool.
