Donofrio, who works for New York–based Italian food market Eataly (take us there now), shoots lots of pictures on his iPhone for the pasta lovers of Instagram to drool over.

He certainly produces pasta that's beautiful to look at — but only for so long, as we totally want to eat it all, too.

Check out some of his most mouthwatering posts.

"It's become my number one passion in life," Donofrio wrote. "To me it's just a different form of artistic expression."

"There are hundreds and hundreds of different kinds of shapes and options — you can do anything with it," he said. "I love pushing the boundaries."

Donofrio's skills have been described as "elevating pasta to art."
