I bet one thing we can all agree on is that pasta is frickin’ awesome. 

From ravioli to spaghetti to fettuccine and everything in between, there’s something to love for everyone. 

And while I like ‘em all, lasagna is my absolute favorite. My mom used to make it for me every year for my birthday growing up and I looked forward to chowing down on it just about as much as getting gifts.

This Sunday (October 17) just so happens to be National Pasta Day, which means we pretty much have to indulge our carb cravings by treating ourselves to some pasta. 

For the occasion, the jewelry website Shane Co. decided to crunch the numbers using Google trends data to figure out just what was the favorite type of pasta in each state. 

The results of the study show that those of us here in Texas prefer the good old standard that is spaghetti. No surprise there. I mean, you can’t wrong with spaghetti. Not only is it a tasty treat that’s sure to please the entire family, it’s one of the easiest dishes to make. 

Overall, researchers found that Fettuccine Alfredo is the most popular in the United States, followed by gnocchi and spaghetti.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
