Today is National Pasta Day, so hopefully you're carbo-loading for a marathon tomorrow. Marathons on random Wednesdays in October are totally a thing.


National Today ran a survey about our pasta eating habits in honor of the day. Here's what they found:

  1. 75% of us eat pasta at least once a week and about 5% eat it daily.
  2. Only 2.8% of us never eat pasta.
  3. The most popular pasta dish is cavatappi with mussels and fish sauce. Just kidding, it's spaghetti, obviously.
  4. The most popular sauce is marinara, it got 52% of the vote. Alfredo sauce came in second, at 44%.
  5. Two-thirds of people say they'd rather eat fettuccini Alfredo than mac and cheese. Nine out of ten people prefer lasagna to baked ziti.
