Does dried pasta go stale?

I've got an open bag of dried pasta which I opened back in the mists of time and has been kicking around, open, in the cupboard ever since. I assume dried pasta doesn't go "bad", but has anyone ever eaten ancient, open dried pasta before? Will it taste musty / stale?

It's so dry, nothing much can happen. Check no weevils or flour beetles as this can be a problem if it's been in your cupboard for years.
Otherwise, just use, it's fine.

Not in my experience. I cooked with pasta two years out of date yesterday - it was fine
