What is LC Hump Day Pasta?
LC Hump Day Pasta (#LCHumpDayPasta) is a little something we cooked up to help you on the night of the week that you feel least like cooking. Wednesday was traditionally Prince Spaghetti Day (for those of you old enough to remember). We’ve revamped and updated that to Hump Day and included every type of pasta there is.

So if you make one of our or your favorite pastas and post it on social media, use the #LCHumpDayPasta hashtag, and get even more great ideas for the week.
