Fans of flour products are eagerly awaiting National Noodle Ring Day. This day gives you permission to indulge in your favorite dish, even if you are on a strict diet. There are many recipes and it is not hard to choose the right one – the main ingredient being noodles, of course. The rest of the ingredients are up to your imagination to experiment with.
The creator of National Noodle Ring Day is yet to be found; however, similar recipes were already around in the 1900s. Researchers believe that this dish first originated in Pennsylvania and the recipe was simple – pasta mixed with milk, cheese, eggs and baked. There were no pre-made products back then, so it is best to make the noodles yourself if you want to replicate the original recipe. In fact, the first pasta factory opened in New York at the end of the 19th century, where the products were dried on the roofs of houses.
The Jewish people also have a version of the dish – Kugel noodles – which is still a traditional dish. According to the original recipe, eggs and goose fat were added, but now many people like to experiment with other ingredients such as ketchup, mushrooms, vegetables, poultry and cream. The mixture is then placed in a ring mold and baked until tender.
- Italians have a love for pasta in their blood. Every year, the population of the country consumes so much pasta that its length is equivalent to the diameter of the planet multiplied by 10,000 times.
- Colored noodles are a sight to behold – tomatoes are added to make red noodles and spinach is added to make green noodles.
- Researchers discovered an amazing find in China dating back to the second millennium BC – a vessel with pasta.
- In the Middle Ages, the Pope controlled the quality of products.
