National Pasta Day

Taking place during National Pasta Month, World Pasta Day is celebrated at restaurants, which may offer specials on the day. Many other locations, such as senior centers and churches, may host pasta parties and all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinners. Pasta is made with flour, salt, water, and eggs. It comes in many shapes, like ribbons, cords, and tubes, and can be prepared in myriad ways, with different cooking techniques and in many recipes. It can be tossed with butter, cheese, seasonings, and sauces of tomato, seafood, and cream. Some pasta may be stuffed with meat, cheese, or spinach. Pasta is used in dishes like spaghetti, fettuccine Alfredo, macaroni and cheese, lasagna, and penne and pesto, and in soups and casseroles.

How to Observe National Pasta Day

Check for specials at restaurants. Some national chains known for pasta, such as Fazoli's and Olive Garden, have offered specials on the day. You could also check for pasta parties and all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinners, or you could make and eat your own pasta dish.
