It’s 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. Did you
know that a typical Italian person eats over sixty pounds of pasta per
year? In comparison, 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 topped with a scrumptious sauce!
I eat pasta almost every day.
We are BIG pasta eaters.
Pasta is awesome
