WEDNESDAY was World Pasta Day.
It was brought into existence as part of the World Pasta Congress on 25 October 1995.
Pasta is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine, with the first reference dating to 1154 in Sicily.
Also commonly used to refer to the variety of pasta dishes, pasta is typically a noodle made from the unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water or eggs and formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked by boiling or baking.
Pastas may be divided into two broad categories – dried (pasta secca) and fresh (pasta fresca).
Experts from all over the world came together to discuss the glories of the noodle, with particular emphasis on the importance of spreading knowledge of the world’s panorama of pasta. The organisation uses World Pasta Day to promote the eating of pasta, along with its cultural and culinary importance.
One of the ways to celebrate World Pasta Day is preparing your favourite dish and enjoying the delicious flavours and textures that come along with your noodley favourite.
