Spaghetti is a popular dinner choice for many because it is easy to prepare and inexpensive as well. Today, Jan. 4 is the day pasta lover’s celebrate “National Spaghetti Day”!

Imagine spaghetti having its own day in the year. It’s true. In fact the first time records in history were referenced and documented about boiled noodles it was found in the Jerusalem Talmud. That tells us that Arabs invented this dish thousands of years ago. It is known that the dried noodles were purchased from a vendor and sold in stores or in outdoor markets since the fifth century.

We are all familiar with the fact that Marco Polo brought back from China in 1274. The Chinese had made their own form of pasta that was a coil of dry noodles they preserved for over 4,000 years.

Today spaghetti is a staple in many homes and is considered more of an Italian cuisine. Pasta in all shapes and sizes has been created since spaghetti was born and enjoyed by millions of people.

The word “spaghetti” in Italian translated means “little lines” and is traditionally served with tomato sauce and sprinkled on top with Parmesan cheese. There are so many ways to enjoy spaghetti and serve it up with so many other meats, cheeses and herbs and spices.
