National Pasta Day

Monday October 17, 2016 is National Pasta Day and Giammarco’s Italian Restaurant in Westerville Ohio is the best place to celebrate the planets most beloved food.

Pasta is Latin for “dough” and according to the National Pasta Association (2016), there are over 600 different shapes of pasta and the average American consumes over 15 pounds a year. Pasta is healthy, versatile and easy to prepare. At Giammarco’s we have over 18 different pasta selections including our award winning lasagna.tn_480_57fca8a8317cd4c50d9e95c1255ece21-png

There is strong evidence that pasta was made as early as 400 B.C. in Italy by an ancient Italian civilization known as the Etruscans. So, sorry Marco Polo, pasta was in Italy long before you had it in China. Although Marco Polo did not introduce pasta to Italy the Chinese have records of pasta being eaten as early as 5,000 B.C. (National Pasta Association, 2016).

It is believed that Thomas Jefferson was one of the first Americans to introduce macaroni to North America in 1789 after serving as our ambassador to France. In 1848 America’s first pasta factory opened up in Brooklyn NY and Americans purchase over 1.3 million pounds of pasta per year. That is enough to wrap the earth in spaghetti 9 times! (NPA, 2016)

Giammarco’s is proud of its pasta and even more proud of its rich Italian heritage. Family recipes, quality ingredients and the love of cooking is the secret the popularity of Giammarco’s and the amazing pasta creations.
