Multilingual alphagetti?

I recently bought a little packet of alphabet pasta imported from Greece. Although practically everything on the packet was written in Greek (save the list of ingredients, which were also in English), the pasta itself was the Roman alphabet, not the Greek one! I suppose this may make sense for export purposes (though if it were primarily aimed at an export market, wouldn't they have translated all the information on the packet into English and perhaps another language or two?), but it did start me musing about alphagetti.

Have people seen pasta in alphabets other than the Roman alphabet? (and should one capitalise the "roman" there??) How about other sorts of scripts... which characters might be selected for Chinese charactergetti, I wonder?
