It’s National Noodle Day. As an Italian, noodles – pasta – were always a huge part of my life. If you listen to The Mike & Carla Morning Show you know that I’m Italian! And if you don’t know the rules of the pasta road…then don’t even think about calling yourself an “Italian”! However, if you want to learn, then I am here to help!
The world has been making and eating noodles for at least 4,000 years. In 2005, a 4,000-year-old bowl of noodles was found in China – the earliest evidence ever found of one of the world’s most popular foods. So they were probably the first to make noodles, not the Italians. But Italy definitely has a proud noodle tradition of its own.
Someone polled 1,000 people in Italy to find out what you might be doing WRONG with pasta, according to Italians – who will certainly school you about all things Italian! Do I use a “pasta” spoon when twirling my noodles on a fork? Can I slurp my noodles up into my mouth? Can I use a piece of bread to mop up the left over sauce on my plate? All great questions people have when eating Italian…needless to say, none of us want to offend right?
There are literally dozens – possibly hundreds – of different shapes and sizes of pasta noodles. Traditional, curly, springy, fat, thin, stuffed, etc! Let’s face it, there are some great Italian restaurants in Las Vegas, so if you are going to go, why not be prepared to eat Italian like an Italian?
If you think I’m just making up a lot of this, there’s an article publish by YouGov , where you can read all about it…so if you want to be a REAL Italian, these are probably good rules to follow.
