October is World Pasta Month, clearly that means it’s time for a celebration! Did you know pasta is so popular in the United States that 24% of the global consumption of pasta is by Americans. We consume 6 billion pounds of pasta each year with the average American consuming 20 pounds of pasta annually. I can blame part of that on my sister, I think she serves pasta with almost every meal.
When you are looking for a fantastic italian dinner head no further than your local Buca Di Beppo, they offer authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. To celebrate World Pasta Month Pasta Month, Buca has rolled out a special October promotion, Create Your Own Pasta Bowl.
