    It is possible to get food poisoning from pasta. Once it is cooked, pasta is a food poisoning risk even after reheating from heat resistant toxins formed by Bacillus cereus bacteria. Symptoms can include stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, seldom vomiting, but no fever and can be deadly if untreated.
