So it turns out jokes are not our thing, but food is! And today is World Pasta Day and you don’t want to miss it. World Pasta Day was first celebrated in 1995. On this day we don’t only pay tribute to the ever-popular noodle but also the millions of families that enjoy them. Pasta and all similar forms of it are consumed on every continent, making it one of the popular foods around.
