The History of Spaghetti

Spaghetti can be traced all the way back to the 1st century, at least the noodles can. It is now believed that pasta was invented in Asia thousands of years ago and made it to Italy during the Arabian conquest of Sicily in the 8th century. Pasta, which means “paste” in Italian, would become a popular commodity among the poor and would be experimented by cooks in Italy for generations. Eventually, it became a dish popular enough for even those in the middle class.

In the 18th century, Thomas Jefferson would popularize macaroni in the U.S. but it was Italian immigrants during the 18th and 19th centuries that brought spaghetti into the U.S.A. Once in the States this dish would continue to evolve. Today, spaghetti is a popular dish in the United States and is enjoyed by millions of people every day.

Unfortunately, while the history is spaghetti is fairly well known, no one really knows when National Spaghetti Day was invented or who invented it. It’s just one of those mysteries that’s unlikely to be solved anytime soon.
