National Pasta Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Pasta Day - Today is National Pasta Day!

Linguine, fettuccine, spaghetti, tortellini, ziti—the list of pastas is endless!

Pasta is typically thought of as an Italian dish, but there is evidence that people living in Asia in 2000 BC made noodles with millet!

Pasta can be made dry (pasta secca) or fresh (pasta fresca). There are over 350 varieties of dried pasta in Italy.

The highest quality of dried pasta is made with pure durum semolina flour and water.

A typical Italian person eats over sixty pounds of pasta per year, while Americans only eat around twenty pounds of pasta per person per year.

To celebrate National Pasta Day, enjoy a delightful dish of your favorite type of pasta!
