Most people assume it was the Italians who invented pasta so I looked into this using good to find that interestingly enough it was not!

I found this:

While we do think of pasta as a culturally Italian food, it is likely the descendent of ancient Asian noodles. A common belief about pasta is that it was brought to Italy from China by Marco Polo during the 13th century.

So pasta is from China!

Funny how the same ingredients are used for both noodles and pasta mainly flour and egg but the two countries use them in such different ways.  China is well known for its noodles as Italy is for its pasta!
