National Pasta Day

Farfalle PastaOctober 17 is National Pasta Day!

National Pasta Day celebrates a type of food familiar to a variety of cultures and countries: pasta! A versatile food that you can eat with a variety of meats, vegetables, sauces and other ingredients, pasta can be made dry or fresh and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. If that’s not enough, pasta (whole wheat, in particular) is also a good source of fiber, iron, B vitamins, folic acid and other nutrients. No wonder pasta gets its own holiday!

Learn more about pasta and  find pasta cooking tips and recipes  at the National Pasta Association’s website ilovepasta.org.

Celebrate National Pasta Day by learning how to cook pasta perfectly and trying out some new pasta recipes. Or you can stick to traditional pasta dishes, like spaghetti or mac n’ cheese.
