World Pasta Day is celebrated every year on October 25. This day is specially created for the people who love to eat carbs daily. Every age of people loves to have pasta, yeah… but selecting their favorite sauce is up to them.

Pasta is a very versatile food and it comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be served cold or hot, as the main dish, side dish or accompanied with a salad.  Pasta is also a universal food that is served worldwide.

Let it be warm steaming spaghetti in a rich red sauce, black olives, and mushrooms, or a rich Chicken Fettuccine in a creamy garlic white sauce that will just blow your mind to go and grab it. Did you know that there are over 600 shapes of pasta and their names are descriptive of their shapes? Yes, that’s true every shape has a name and makes a lot of difference in look and taste. Spaghetti -‘cord’, vermicelli-like little worms, rotini - spirals, fusili like of spindles, tortellini -little cakes, linguini as in - little tongues, conchiglie shaped as shells, fettucine turned to be small ribbons, penne - quills and capellini as fine hairs. These are the savory little goodies which are essential to any pantry.

However, the Italian food made it famous, and it was only a gateway drug of pasta. While the Chinese Chow Mein and German Spaetzle are just a couple of other ways the world has taken pasta and fallen in love with this delicious dish.
