A New England resident fought for her right to express her beliefs, and won.

Lindsay Miller, claiming to be a "Pastafarian," has been given the OK by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles to wear a colander on her head in her driver's license photo.

The Lowell resident says she "absolutely loves the history and the story" of Pastafarians, whose website says has existed in secrecy for hundreds of years and entered the mainstream in 2005.
