Truth be told, in 1279 a.d., a will drafted by Ponzio Bastone was discovered handing down a capacity container of macceroni when Marco Polo was still in the Far East. 

Early Romans utilized an extremely basic flour and water mixture. Pasta is the Italian word for dough. 

Thomas Jefferson acquainted pasta with the Americas after first tasting it in Naples, Italy. He was the American Ambassador to France at the time. In 1789, he brought the primary pasta machine, alongside boxes of macaroni, back to the United States. 

Pasta turned into a typical North American nourishment in the late nineteenth century with the surge in Italian movement.
