March, National Noodle Month!

March is National Noodle Month.

To celebrate, we’ve compiled a few fun facts:

- Noodles can be traced back to the Etruscans in the fourth century B.C.

- Roman mythology tells of the god Vulcan inventing a device that made strings of dough.

- Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing the first pasta maker to America in 1789 after returning from serving as ambassador to France.

- In the U.S., 84 percent of Northeasterners eat pasta on a weekly basis, compared to 70 percent of Southerners.

I just think it is very interesting. I never heard of noodle month before have you?
