Acoording to the Ntional Calendar site: October is National Pasta Month, and October 17 recognizes National Pasta Day. 
Pasta lovers celebrate!
 
While we find noodles all over the world, pasta is a type of noodle of traditional Italian cuisine. The first reference dates to 1154 in Sicily and was first attested to in English in 1874. Typically, it is made from an unleavened dough of durum wheat flour. The flour is mixed with water or eggs and formed into sheets or various shapes. It can then be served fresh or dried to be stored for later use.  
 
Types of Pasta
Look for pasta in pasta in both savory and dessert dishes. Since it’s so versatile, pasta lends itself to sweet and every other dish on the table. Cooks feature pasta as a main dish, but they also serve up delicious hot and cold side dishes as well. And then, of course, those special desserts we can’t resist making our mouths water. 
 
Cooks originally made fresh pasta by hand. However, today, many varieties of fresh pasta are made commercially. Large-scale machines bring choices to our grocers daily. Smaller pasta machines on the market make having the freshest pasta at home even easier. 
  • Dried and fresh pasta come in several shapes and varieties.
  • There are so many kinds of pasta! According to the Encyclopedia of Pasta by Oretta Zanini De Vita, 310 specific kinds of pasta identified by over 1300 names have been documented.
  • In Italy, names of specific pasta shapes or types vary with locale.
  • Example: Cavatelli is known by 28 different names depending on the region and town.

The size and shape of pasta may determine the best sauce to pair with it. For example, serve linguine with lighter, thinner sauces to avoid breaking the noodles. A similarly shaped noodle, fettuccine, is less delicate. That’s why it carries heavier sauces like alfredo.

Our old neighbors were Italian and she made fresh pasta daily, as her husband would not eat dried pasta only fresh. Every year they made jars of gravy, her pasta was delicious and it was always a treat to be invited for dinner, but there was always so much food we waddled home.

Abby,

Noodle history throughout the world is common, the Chinese claim they were first and Marco Polo brought pasta from China to Italy.  Regardless, we enjoy it. A

Hi Abby,  Thanks for the reminder and giving us a reason to eat pasta.  We have been experimenting with veggie pasta lately.   I do like fresh made pasta best.

I love pasta, Abby... but avoid it unless I'm eating out. Don't keep it in the house, as a result.

Hi Abby – pasta is my favorite dish, but my portion control regarding pasta isn’t the best so I try to stay away from it.
