At the World Pasta Congress held in Rome on the 25th day of October in 1995, pasta makers from around the world enthusiastically agreed that pasta—a healthy, delicious, popular, sustainable and convenient food—deserved annual worldwide recognition.
Every year since 1998, in countries around the globe, World Pasta Day has been celebrated on October 25th.
This celebration of World Pasta Day draws increasing attention to the merits and benefits of pasta—its great taste, its healthfulness and its simple convenience—for people everywhere. Join families, chefs and restaurants around the world every year on October 25th and celebrate World Pasta Day by trying a new recipe or two, or an old family-favorite, with your friends and family. And don’t forget that the magical merits of pasta—taste, health sustainability and convenience—are worthy of celebration all year long!
