Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical pasta that’s a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. In its simplest form, spaghetti can be formed using no more than a rolling pin, a knife, and time. A home pasta machine simplifies the rolling, makes the cutting more uniform, and speeds up the process. Commercially made spaghetti can be dried and stored for months, but handmade spaghetti is best when cooked within a few hours. Traditionally spaghetti is served with a rich tomato sauce or a cheesy carbonara. Regardless of how you serve it, this Italian classic is fun to make and delicious!
