For straightforward pasta you can't get any simpler—or any better—than spaghetti.
Many people regard this as the original long pasta, and it certainly is what many people imagine when they think of classical Italian dishes. Whether spaghetti is the sidekick or the star, it is simply delicious either way. So let it be a regular on your table. Make a dish of Chicken-Spaghetti Casserole, or serve a hearty plate of Country-Style Spaghetti. The latter dish certainly lives up to its name, packed as it is with dozens of Italian-style meatballs.
You'll also want some spaghetti on hand for your tetrazzini cook-offs: it fits the bill and fills the palate in Turkey Tetrazzini or Chicken Marsala Tetrazzini. If you'd like some spaghetti a little lighter, try a whole-grain version in Sweet Chili-Lime Noodles with Vegetables or some Tomato-Herb Pasta. Regardless of how you prefer your spaghetti—whole-grain or plain, in a casserole or twirled on a fork—you can't beat its versatility and its taste. Enjoy some spaghetti today.
