‘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
