A quick side note here, please, posters: does it make a difference if the pasta has been boiled in chicken (or beef) broth; does the two-hour rule still hold? Thanks.

The two-hour rule applies to all cooked foods.

That was fast. Thanks, GG. I didn't go look at that link; maybe I should have.

I got the FDA ServSafe certificate a couple years ago when I was in culinary school (had to withdraw for medical reasons).

Just a quick follow-up to my original question : I was eating at my uncle's house and he had some left-over pasta that I took back. However, the pasta in question had been left out for longer than 2 hours, but in a plastic sealed container. I can't remember exactly how long it was left out (it had been there before I arrived) maybe about 3-4 hours. Is it still safe to eat?

I suggest you use the information provided by: Food Safety Home | CDC

Many folks like to push the limits and what might be fine for them could make you very sick. Best to stick with the professionals.
