Both my Barilla Linguini and Ronzoni (various pasta) boxes don't list eggs, or any part of as an ingredient.
However, both have disquilifiers stated on the boxes:
"Contains wheat ingredients and is manufactured in a facility that uses eggs."
I'm would guess when making new batches of something else, equipment is sanitized, but the statement is made. ????

Regular pasta (like spaghetti or linguine) doesn't contain eggs. But, I personally like mashed potatoes!

You could also check out a product called "Notta Pasta" (they do have a website). It's rice based &, I believe, does not contain any eggs. Comes in different pasta noodle types. We really like it - when we can find it. Sometimes it's in the pasta/noodle aisle, sometimes in the Asian aisle, sometimes in the gourmet food aisle.

I've found that ribbon noodles typically have egg. Most other pasta does not, although I've found some lasagna noodles that have eggs. The ribbon noodles that I have found are typically expensive, but they are available. I usually go for some other pasta shape instead. As others have said, most pasta does not have egg.
