‘Newsjack’ alert for writers: National Pasta Day is fast approaching.
According to the National Pasta Day website:
“Marco Polo did not discover pasta in Asia and take it to Italy. Early Romans used a very simple flour and water dough: pasta is Italian for ‘dough.’”
Interestingly, Thomas Jefferson introduced pasta to the United States when he transported a pasta machine – along with crates of macaroni – from Naples.

The Husband and I are eating out on the 17th to celebrate.
But … today … maybe the restaurant needs a quick blurb written about this event?

Happy National Pasta Day
Kathie! I’ve been trying my best to go gluten free, but after reading your article, all I can think about is a big bowl of ribbon pasta with some spicy bolognese sauce. At the end of this day, I may be forced to give in!
Sorry about that, but it’s nice to know the blog ‘gets’ to people :->
What a fun holiday – and a great time to try restaurant gluten-free pasta (’cause IIII can never seem to make it come out right!).
