Pasta Tidbit

As common of a staple this is in our American diet today it was not the case in the 19th Century. Yes, Thomas Jefferson did bring home to the white house a pasta maker in the 1789, but it wasn't until the Italian Immigrants came to America in the 1880's to 1900 that pasta became intertwined in our American diets.

In Northern Italy in 1824 the Agnese family opened the very first pasta factory.

The first written record of a tomato sauce recipe is 1839.
