National Spaghetti Day
On January 4th, you will have the opportunity to select your sauce and add it to the long, thin cylindrical pasta of Italian and Sicilian origins. This pasta has been a worldwide favorite for decades and loved by millions of people, mainly made from semolina flour.
There are several pasta dishes based on spaghetti, but the sauce determines the majority of them. Spaghetti ala Carbonara, garlic and oil, tomato sauce, meat sauce, bolognese, Alfredo sauce, clam sauce, or other sauces are among the examples that include spaghetti ala Carbonara, garlic and oil, spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, meat sauce, or other sauces. In addition, we also offer spaghetti dishes topped with grated hard cheeses such as Pecorino Romano, Parmesan, and Grana Padano.
During the 19th century, Spaghetti Italienne (which is said to have consisted of noodles cooked past al dente and a mild tomato sauce flavored with commonly found spices and vegetables such as cloves, bay leaves, and garlic) was sold in American restaurants until Spaghetti Italienne (which is said to have consisted of noodles cooked past al dente and a mild tomato sauce flavored with commonly found spices and vegetables such as cloves, bay leaves, and garlic). Decades later, cooks added oregano and basil to many dishes.
The origins of spaghetti are being debated. However, we do know that we've been eating pasta for many, many years. There are records in the Jerusalem Talmud of itrium, a kind of boiled dough that is commonly available in Palestine from the 3rd to 5th centuries AD. Itriyaas are described as string-like shapes made of semolina and dried before baking in a 9th-century Arab dictionary. In a 1154 essay for Norman King of Sicily, he mentions itriya as being produced and exported from Norman Sicily. Due to its convenient storage, dried pasta became popular in the 14th and 15th centuries. When exploring the New World, people dried pasta in ships. Pasta is still popular around the world a century after the voyages of discovery. (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia) (Wikipedia).
On top of spaghetti
The world record for the largest bowl of spaghetti was set in March 2009 and then reset in March 2010 when a Garden Grove California Buca di Beppo restaurant successfully packed a swimming pool with more than 13,780 pounds of pasta.
"On Top of Old Smoky," the fun children's song "On Top of Spaghetti," was written and originally performed by folk singer Tom Glazer with the Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus in 1963.
"On top of spaghetti, on top of spaghetti, there is a snail." All covered with cheese, but all covered with cheese. I'd forgotten my bad meatballs because I was starving. When someone sneezed, someone coughed.
It rolled off the table, rolling it off the table. And now to the floor. And then there was my poor meatball. Rolled out of the door."
