March is National Noodle Month!

In a salute to the ultimate comfort food, the National Pasta Association, (yes, this is an actual registered nonprofit organization), has named the month of March, "National Noodle Month". Did you know... Noodles were first made by 13th Century bakers who fashioned their dough into symbolic shapes such as birds, stars and words. Noodles contain eggs; almost all other dry pasta shapes do not. By US Federal Law, a "noodle" must contain at least 5.5% egg solids (...at least Congress could agree on something!) Noodle consumption increases 20% during the colder winter months. Consumption also spikes each year during the Lenten season when many people prepare meatless meals for this religious occasion. Have a cold, a broken heart or the wintertime blues? Noodles are the ultimate cure-all!
