National Pasta Day

Caboodles of noodles! Pasta comes in all shapes and sizes. Virtually every culture has its own variations.

The first recorded mention of pasta is credited to Sicily back in 1154. While we can find pasta and noodles all over the world, it truly is associated most strongly with Italian cuisine.

Whether you make it yourself or buy it fresh or dried… or you enjoy it at someone else’s table or in a restaurant, don’t count the calories today. Enjoy it hot or cold… in an appetizer or dessert… as a side dish or entrée. Indulge in just a few bites or a big bowl.

Sure, you could go for zero carb types, such as those made from the Konjac root vegetable… or go low-carb by diving straight into zucchini zoodles. Or you could indulge in a cheese-filled pasta topped with a favorite sauce, cheese, and herbs. Pasta lovers celebrate! Anyway YOU want it!
