Izzy Hot Pasta
They say Italians have style, food and pasta but how much of that is true. Arabs were enjoying noodles centuries before Marco Polo imported pasta from china in the time of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). Chinese had been consuming noodles as early as 3000 B.C. In Greek mythology, it is believed that the god Hephaestus invented a device that made strings of dough. This was the earliest reference to a pasta maker. I think it does not matter who originated this delicious and healthy food but i do believe no one made use of this food better then the Italians.
The benefits of pasta are not only to your body but it is one of the least intensive foods to produce. Pasta is more energy dense than fruits and vegetables, which are harder to grow, transport and store year-round. As the planet continues to move toward climate uncertainty, food choices will need to make the best use of the earth’s precious resources. A 2010 report on Sustainable Diets and Biodiversity from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization recognized the Mediterranean Diet as a sustainable diet, due to its biocultural diversity. Indeed, pasta is a key harbor of this diversity, as it is used as a canvas for a number of different seasonal ingredients.
