More About This Recipe
  • Spaghetti is easily one of the most well-known Italian traditions that kitchens across America have adopted and adapted. “Spaghetti” is actually the name of the noodle in the dish, but the term has become interchangeable with the recipe name for thin, cylindrical pasta, tomato-based sauce and ground beef or meatballs. There is much debate about where spaghetti originated from, but the widely accepted theory is that it became mainstay in Sicily, Italy. However, Italians have many different interpretations of spaghetti recipes including spaghetti alla puttanesca which includes a red sauce with capers, olives, anchovies and garlic or spaghetti Bolognese which is a meat-based sauce. Spaghetti was introduced to the United States during the early- to mid- 20th century when Italian immigrants began arriving to America. The immigrants brought their own family traditions and secret sauce recipes that had been handed down for generations, and several of those creations can be found in restaurants around the world today. Making pasta at home is totally worth it and if you’re looking to change up the classic recipes, browse through our genius pasta twists that include baked spaghetti, chicken spaghetti and even spaghetti tacos!
