Mark your calendars for Monday, October 17th, as we welcome you to join us in celebrating National Pasta Day! As an authentic Italian restaurant, we take pride in our pasta by using only the freshest and best quality ingredients. If you’ve been searching “food near me” in hopes of finding some hearty pasta dishes, we’ve got you covered!
The story of the original creation of pasta is still up for debate. But we can at least accurately date it back to the 12th century when it was introduced by the Arabs in Sicily. However, the pasta dishes we think of today weren’t always savory. Originally, it was sweeter as the Arabs used ingredients like raisins and cinnamon.
There are many different types of pasta we’ve come to know and love over the years. But what if we told you that there are actually over 310 varieties of pasta? Yes, that’s right, over 310. Most of us are probably used to the more common types like macaroni, linguine, spaghetti, penne, and many more. But next time you’re at the grocery store, branch out by picking a new type of pasta to try!
