The origins of macaroni, and therefore of pasta, date back in time to the historic period of ancient Romans. Apicio, Roman writer of the first century A.D., writes about a pasta prepared “to enclose pasta timbales and pies” named “Lagana”. The first historical quote concerning the cooking of pasta boiling in in water belongs to the Arabs, that probably introduced the dry pasta during the conquest of Sicily.
