A day worth celebrating (Picture: Getty Images)
There’s only one thing better than pasta, and that’s free pasta.
In October 1995, culinary experts from all around the globe gathered for the World Pasta Congress (yes, that’s a real thing), and decided to set a date dedicated to celebrating the cultural impact of pasta and its consumption.
From then on, October 25 was named World Pasta Day, and we can all agree, it’s a day worth celebrating.
And if you’re wondering just how to mark the big day on Wednesday, how about pasta for breakfast?
Pasta Evangelists are taking over the London Underground and serving popular dishes to commuters — and it won’t cost you a penne.
The pasta delivery service will be popping up at five stations, offering commuters free pasta.

Between 11:30am and 1:30pm on Wednesday, they’ll be giving 1,000 portions of some of their most beloved dishes, at Camden Town, Tooting (they haven’t specified which of the Tooting branches), Farringdon, Clapham Junction and Fulham Broadway.
Dishes on offer will include their beef shin ragu, arrabbiatta, wild mushroom pasta, and their classic carbonara.
And as part of this Italian-style rebrand, the stations are, of course, having a rebrand. Camden Town will become Camdenlloni Town, Tooting turns into Tootelloni, Farringdon is Farfallingdon, Clapham Junction is renamed to Claphamellini, and Fulham Broadway transforms to Fusilli.
So, what are you waiting for? Come and spaghet-it!
It won’t cost you a penne.
