So I learned that no/の is used as a possesive noun. For example, Kimi no/君の = "Your" in English. I also learned that it can be used to connect nouns together. So, say kookoo no sensei/高校の先生, means "high school teacher". However, I saw someone say "Pasuta o taberu no ga suki desu/パスタを食べるのが好きです" to mean "I like to eat pasta." So this really confuses me. From what I know, the particle "ga/が" marks the ability of doing something, like "I can eat sushi" while "o/を" is used to say "I eat sushi." So the sentence "Pasuta o taberu no ga suki desu/パスタを食べるのが好きです" really confuses me. Could someone please break it down and explain it for me? (In romaji/ローマ字, as much as you can)
taberu no ga
would mean 'to eat' because you can add 'no ga' to the 'ru' form of a verb and it would mean 'to do the verb'. This is used like an accusative, meaning that if you want to say 'I like eating' you would say
watashi wa taberu no ga suki desu
This is an alternate use of the 'no' particle quite common in advanced sentences.
Also, keep in mind that when you use the 'no ga' combination, the noun which you like to eat must have the 'wo' particle on it as it would be dative.
