Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical pasta of Italian origin. Spaghetti is made of semolina or flour and water, and Italian dried spaghetti is made from durum wheat semolina, but outside of Italy it may be made with other kinds of flour. Traditionally, most spaghetti was 50 cm (20 in) long, but shorter lengths gained in popularity during the latter half of the 20th century and now spaghetti is most commonly available in 25–30 cm (10–12 in) lengths. A variety of pasta dishes are based on it, from spaghetti alla Carbonara or garlic and oil to a spaghetti with tomato sauce, meat and other sauces. Spaghetti is commonly sold in supermarkets in dried form.
Spaghetti is the plural form of the Italian word spaghetto, which is a diminutive of spago, meaning "thin string" or "twine".
I have loved spaghetti since forever! Growing up, we always had spaghetti bolognese for dinner at least once a week. My mum makes an amazing spaghetti & meatballs dish. Brownie points to her, because she's not even Italian! ;) Pasta is one of my favourite foods and spaghetti is up the top of the list as a favourite type of pasta :)
