Thomas Jefferson introduced pasta to the Americas after first tasting it in Naples, Italy.  He was the American Ambassador to France at the time.  In 1789, he brought the first pasta machine, along with crates of macaroni, back to the United States.

Pasta became a common North American food in the late 19th century with the surge in Italian immigration.

According to the International Pasta Organization, there are more than 600 different shapes of pasta produced throughout the world. Dry pasta are made with just wheat and water.  Fresh pasta adds an egg to the dough.

If you miss National Pasta Day, don't worry - it's only just over a week until World Pasta Day on October 25th!
