History of World Pasta Day...
Although the invention of pasta is attributed to the Chinese, it can not be denied that it is Italian pasta that is the most popular type of pasta today. Therefore, it is not surprising that the first World Pasta Congress was held in Italy. It was held in Rome on October 25, 1995. Experts from all over the world came together to discuss all the benefits of this wonderful product, focusing on its cultural and culinary importance. Also, to promote the eating of pasta, the World Pasta Day was established. As a result we are pleased to celebrate it annually on October 25.
One of the best ways to celebrate World Pasta Day is to prepare yourself your favorite pasta dish and enjoy its wonderful taste, aroma, and texture. Of course, you can share this pleasure with your your friends, having arranged a pasta party to exchange recipes, try new tastes, invent new sauces. And don’t worry too much about possible slight carbohydrate overload. Scientists in recent years have revised their previous statements în the negative role of pasta on our health and now say it is not only nutritious, but also healthy food.
