It’s National Spaghetti Day, a day of recognition for one of the most popular Italian foods enjoyed throughout the world. The word spaghetti is the Italian plural for “thin string” and relates to the shape of the noodle. There are several types of “long noodles” and three primary variations of round, long noodles. Angel hair is the thinest, spaghetti is in the middle, and bucatini is the thickest.
