If I could just eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be pasta. I say this with confidence because I already eat pasta almost every day and I still look forward to it like it’s a special treat, every single time I twirl it around my fork. If you couldn’t guess, I’m more excited for National Pasta Day than I am for my own birthday. Why? Because I fully plan on eating pasta for every meal, and I look forward to the excuse to talk about my favorite dish all day. And while I’ll definitely be making a few of my own pasta dishes, I also plan on going out and taking advantage of some of the National Pasta Day deals and freebies, because while parmesan makes pasta taste better, discounts take it to the next level.

Depending on what you’re down for, there’s likely a deal that sounds like it was made for you, and your belly. From all you can eat bottomless pasta-bowl style deals, to buy one get one free deals, there’s a rad way for you to celebrate your favorite noodles and also save a little money, too. If there was every a time to get the crew together for a dinner, it’s definitely on October 17, aka National Pasta Day — so put it in the calendar!
