How long has dried pasta been around?

My wife just read a recipe (not sure in which cookbook), that was dated to have originated, or been based on a recipe from 1840 which called for dry ziti to be covered with olive oil for 20 minutes, then tomatos and several other ingredients then baked.

Maybe the recipe has just been updated for modern usage, but it led me to wonder how long dried pasta has been around.
