Happy National Spaghetti Day!
January 4 is National Spaghetti Day! Spaghetti is a food beloved my many people of all ages. The cylindrical pasta comes from Italy and Sicily and is typically made from semolina flour. Learn more about spaghetti and National Spaghetti Day by reading on!
Spaghetti has been around for centuries, but there is a debate related to its actual origins. Some say spaghetti got its start in Jerusalem, while others believe it was first created in Sicily. What we do know is that it was first manufactured and exported from Norman, Sicily during the 14th and 15th centuries. During this time, Sicilians dried their pasta to make it easier to ship when exploring new lands. Today, pasta is still dried to make it easier to sell and faster to prepare.
Spaghetti has its place in American pop culture. In March of 2010, a world record for the largest bowl of spaghetti was set when Garden Grove California Buca di Beppo, a restaurant, filled a swimming pool with over 13,780 pounds of pasta. You may also be familiar with the song “On Top of Spaghetti.” This fun children’s song is about a runaway meatball, which was sitting on top of a bowl of spaghetti. Speaking of meatballs, nothing pairs better with spaghetti than meatballs.
