Spaghetti, those long, thin, strips of pasta, are certainly deserving of a celebration all their own. Although it was probably the Arabs who invented these delicious noodles -- it was the Italians who found so many ways to bring spaghetti to our tables -- and so many pasta shapes to our grocery store shelves.
You can find lots of terrific dishes to tantalize your taste buds in The Silver Spoon for Children: Favorite Italian Recipes. Of course, the book includes spaghetti -- but also linguine, macaroni, ravioli and tagliatelle as well as recipes with no pasta at all.
Are you hungry just thinking about all that deliciousness?
