(CNN) -

Today is a special day for pasta lovers. 

July seventh is national macaroni day.

The kind of dough the noodles are made with is the reason why the popular pasta is macaroni; not the size and shape. 

Macaroni comes in many shapes and sizes that typically do not contain eggs. The most common type of macaroni is the elbow shaped noodle, thanks to the famous macaroni and cheese dish.

This noodle can be used countless dishes ranging from casseroles to soups and the childhood favorite, mac and cheese!
