Must-Try Spaghetti Recipes
When it comes to pasta, it doesn’t get much better (and easier!) than spaghetti and meatballs. After all, how many other pasta dishes hold the distinction of having their very own jingle? And just like that song, we can’t resist spaghetti all covered with cheese. When you’re short on time and fresh out of ideas, a one-pot wonder of spaghetti can be the perfect solution on busy weeknights. But, as you’ll see with our collection of family-friendly spaghetti recipes, spaghetti dishes can be so much more than pasta noodles drenched in store-bought jars of tomato sauce. No, these recipes go beyond meatballs and marinara. From kid-friendly classics for picky eaters to more grown-up versions for those who crave something a little more innovative, there’s something here for everyone. What are you waiting for? Find your favorite and give it a twirl for old times sake.
