Sicilia

If one wanted to study the history of Europe you could do no better than study the history of the invaders who have passed through conquered Sicily.  Greeks, Arabs, Romans, Norman and Spanish have all left their marks nowhere more visibly than in the food. Dried pasta probably entered the Italian diet here (forget stories of Marco Polo) dried pasta was an Arab invention and it was from Sicily that  the habit of using pasta spread north.
