About Spaghetti:

Spaghetti pasta is incredibly thin, cylindrical pasta that holds onto sauce really well. It's commonly made fresh with eggs and flour, but the dried versions are made with durum wheat and last for far longer.

Traditionally, spaghetti is cooked just to the point of being al dente, which literally means 'to the tooth' and tends to refer to pasta that still has a bite. It's cooked in vigorously boiling, salted water, and takes from between 3 minutes to cook (fresh pasta) and 10 minutes to cook (dried pasta).

The Italians then toss the spaghetti into their pasta sauce, using a little bit of the pasta cooking water to enable the sauce to adhere to the pasta more. The spaghetti can then be topped with basil or parmesan cheese, but can also be eaten with just a sauce. However, in England, the most common way of serving pasta is with the spaghetti arranged around a plate, with the sauce over the top. We dare you — try serving your pasta the Italian way when you make one of our delicious recipes above, and you'll be pleasantly surprised!
