Celebrate National Pasta Month w/Giovanni Rana
It’s National Pasta Month. I didn’t even know that there was a whole month dedicated to pasta but that just sounds amazing to me. To celebrate Giovanni Rana is holding a #PastaLove campaign with weekly giveaways for Giovanni Rana pasta.
National Pasta Month kicks off today, October 1st, and to celebrate Giovanni Rana, Italy’s most loved pasta maker and also now available nationally in the United States, is inviting foodies all over to show off their #PastaLove.
In celebration of National Pasta Month (October), Columbus Day (Oct 13), National Pasta Day (Oct 17), World Pasta Day (Oct 25) and Mr. Giovanni’s Birthday (Oct 15), Giovanni Rana will spread #PastaLove with an autumn-inspired Fall In Love With Pasta campaign. Each week, fans who share photos of their favorite pasta will be entered to win a week’s worth of Giovanni Rana pasta and sauce delivered to their door.

Giovanni Rana has been a renowned pasta maker in Italy for over 50 years. In 2012, the Rana family launched its first state-of-the-art factory in the US (just outside of Chicago in Bartlett, IL), which produces the retail line of pasta and sauces now distributed all over the country. The factory is home to proprietary machinery designed by Giovanni that mimics the movements used to hand-roll dough to produce an exceptionally thin pasta with a delicate bite. The fillings are created from artisanal ingredients including DOP Parmigiano Reggiano cheese imported by the wheel and DOP Genovese basil. The retail line features 15 different pastas and 4 sauces, and it introduced to the US new packaging sizes (12 or 22 oz) presented in craft-paper, stand-up pouches for the pasta and smartly-designed sauce containers. The line of filled pastas just introduced two new flavors this fall, Butternut Squash Ravioli and Italian Sausage Mezzaluna.
