National Spaghetti Day

National Spaghetti Day Did you know that tomorrow is National Spaghetti Day? This tried and true favorite for busy cooks and picky eaters can seem pretty dull at times, but there are excellent ways to dress up this family favorite. It’s all in what you add to the plate. If you’ve got adventurous eaters at your table, or if you want to teach little ones to expand their palates, try grilling some radicchio and laying it on a bed of traditional spaghetti. The bitterness of the bright purple leaf gets tamed by the heat, and pairs very well with Parmesan cheese and other salty foods. So add a little color to spaghetti tonight, and enjoy the complex flavors that add punch to plain old spaghetti sauce. Get creative and use your imagination.
