NATIONAL MACARONI DAY
Each year on July 7th, pasta lovers across the nation dig into one of their favorite noodles on National Macaroni Day.
Made with durum wheat, macaroni is a large variety of dry pasta which typically does not contain eggs. While many people think the shape gives macaroni its name, its the kind of dough from which the noodles are made. However, elbow macaroni is the most common form found in the United States. The noodle is formed into shells, spirals, straight and many other shapes, too.
Macaroni is used in many different dishes from casseroles and hot dishes to soups and salads.
