World Pasta Day – Our Gluten Free Favorites
By: Suzanne Wolke
Did you know October 25th was declared World Pasta Day by the World Pasta Congress in 1995!? The goal of this international holiday is to emphasize the fact that pasta is a global food and is enjoyed throughout every continent in world. Now we’re happy to participate in this celebration – but as long as that bowl of noodles is gluten free! Luckily there are some great gluten free, ready-made options available to help bring your Italian-inspired dish to light. And if you’re really ambitious, we’ve even found some recipes that will help you make your own home-made pasta (now if that’s not authentically Italian we don’t know what is) in the comfort of your own kitchen!
