Stop your pursuit in its tracks when you come across Swanton Street Diner after searching for “food near me.” We’ll tell you why! October 17th celebrates National Pasta Day, and we’re here to do the same. We do more than just your typical diner food that you know and love. That’s right, we do pasta too.
History of Pasta
Did you know there are over 310 different types of pasta? That’s a lot of pasta to account for over the years, especially when it dates back to 1154 in Sicily. This dish is commonly made from an unleavened dough of wheat flour that’s mixed with eggs and water. It’s then made into sheets or different shapes. Pasta can be served hot or cold, making it a versatile food, whether an entree or side dish!
What Will You Get on October 17th?
As we said before, Swanton Street Diner knows how to make a mean pasta dish. If you’re curious about our selection of pasta entrees, here we list a few of our favorites from our House Specialties!
