Excerpt from passage

Italy is a peninsula in southern Europe. Two large islands, Sicily and Sardinia, are also part of Italy. Inside the borders of Italy, there are two separate countries! One is Vatican City and the other is San Marino. Both of these tiny countries have their own governments.

Italians love to cook and eat! In Italy, the largest meal of the day is eaten at what we would call lunch time. Almost every meal in Italy includes pasta. The type of pasta depends on what part of Italy you are in. In the north, flat pasta with cream sauce is the most popular. In the south, macaroni with tomato sauce is the favorite. Cheese, pork, and veal are also popular foods in Italy. The adults usually drink wine with every meal except breakfast.
