October 17th is National Pasta Day and we are featuring pasta front and center! Did you know that China claims to have invented pasta, and Marco Polo brought it back to Europe from there in 1721? Thomas Jefferson fell in love with pasta when he lived in Paris in the 1780s and brought it back to the U.S. But it is Italy that truly is the home of pasta since the 13th century, and since then they have disseminated it worldwide. Today, pasta is most popular in Italy, the U.S. and Russia! Here are some of our favorite pasta-centric picks for your al dente-style celebration.
