October 17th is National Pasta Day and living in Rockford, Illinois is one of the best places to celebrate! We are so blessed to have a plethora of amazing Italian Restaurants right in our own backyard.

It's no surprise in a world where there's a day for everything that something like pasta would eventually have their own too. Everybody likes pasta. It's a world-wide favorite for many! It's not hard to see why either. It comes in several different types like spaghetti, lasagna, rotini, and tortellini. Pasta can also be a main or side dish. Not to mention it's good for you! This holiday is so popular that it has it's own website.

Grab a fork and celebrate at some of these great local restaurants!
