It seems there is a “day” for everything, these days! And on Sunday this weekend, it was  “World Pasta Day“. Did you celebrate pasta in some way?

Did you know there are over 600 shapes of pasta? wOw… +600!!! I’m thinking any shape will do for most of us—as long as it tastes good… Anyone who enjoys crafting with pasta will care more about its shape/detail… Especially those talented cooks who like to make homemade pasta from scratch! Speaking of which… Here is a recipe for Fresh “Knitting Needle” Pasta with Goat Sauce—from My Calabria by Rosetta Costantino and Janet Fletcher. Recipe includes tips for using an actual knitting needle in the traditional pasta-making technique!

Plus of course, pasta’s long shelf life makes it a good choice for food hampers/donations 🙂

    • Yep! According to the website, pasta shares its special day with 4 other days, as well… LoL … I enjoyed finding the knitting/pasta links for this post, though 🙂 ♥ ❤

    • Goodness yes, Jean… pass d’ pasta… one shape at a time, please!
      This pasta post was inspired by the crafting video (see link at the end of this post), which I’d shared on the blog’s fb page. One fb reader asked what kind of pasta it was… Then suddenly, it was World Pasta Day and time to craft a pasta party! 😉 ♥ ❤
