The long,tangled history of spaghetti
  Few people today would argue that spaghetti is a staple food of Italy. However, the origins of spaghetti are a matter of debate. You are probably saying to yourself, “Surely, spaghetti is from Italy,” but do you know that for sure? Let’s see if we can untangle this plate of historical noodles.

  The most famous rumor has to do with the Italian explorer Marco Polo and his travels throughout Asia in the 13th century. He brought noodles from China back to Italy and wrote about a number of noodle dishes in his journals. Because of these records, spaghetti has been said to be based on these noodles.

 However, studies have proven otherwise. According to scholars, when the Arabs took control of Sicily around the 7th century, they introduced a noodle dish similar to spaghetti to the area. It was recorded that people in the area were eating food made from flour in the form of strings. Even after the Arabs left the area, their influence carried on. By the 12th century, the spaghetti industry had become big business. So, the dish had already been around long before Marco Polo.

義大利麵錯綜複雜的悠久歷史
  在今日很少有人會爭辯說義大利麵不是義大利的主食。然而,義大利麵的起源仍有爭議。你可能會對自己說:「當然,義大利麵是來自義大利吧。」但你確定嗎?讓我們來看看是否能解開這碟歷史悠久的麵條的身世之謎吧。
  最著名的傳聞與義大利探險家馬可.波羅及其在十三世紀遊歷亞洲有關。他將中國的麵條帶回義大利,並在他的日誌中記載許多麵食。由於這些記錄,據說義大利麵就是基於這些麵條而生的。
  然而,研究證實並非如此。據學者表示,當阿拉伯人在七世紀左右掌控西西里島時,他們將類似義大利麵的麵食引進當地。記載顯示該地區的人們吃用麵粉製成的線狀食物。即使阿拉伯人離開該地區後,他們的影響力仍延續。到了十二世紀,義大利麵產業已成一大生意。由此可見,這道菜餚早在馬可.波羅之前就已存在了。
