HAPPY NATIONAL PASTA DAY!

Today is National Pasta Day, so hopefully you’re carbo-loading for a marathon tomorrow.  Marathons on random Wednesdays in October are totally a thing.

Anyway, a website called National Today ran a survey about our pasta eating habits in honor of the day.  And here’s what they found . . .

1.  75% of us eat pasta at least once a week . . . and about 5% eat it DAILY.

2.  Only 2.8% of us never eat pasta.

3.  The most popular pasta dish is cavatappi with mussels and fish sauce.  Just kidding.  It’s spaghetti, obviously.

4.  And the most popular sauce is marinara . . . it got 52% of the vote.  Alfredo sauce came in second, at 44%.

5.  Thanks to that love of Alfredo sauce, two-thirds of people say they’d rather eat fettuccini Alfredo than mac and cheese.  And nine out of ten people prefer lasagna to baked ziti.
