National Spaghetti Day
It’s National Spaghetti Day so time to bring out your favorite spaghetti and have a nice bowl for dinner! You could have it with a nice red sauce, a pesto or a yummy alfredo sauce to name a few.
Did you know that we saw an estimate online that there were over 300 different types of pastas? That’s just crazy right? Spaghetti is one of those and within it there are many different types too.
It’s also unclear how the pasta came to be. Did it start in China? Did it start in Italy? Who knows for sure but in the end does it really matter? Pasta is a great option if you’d like to have a meatless meal.
Spaghetti is one of the simpler pastas to make because you simply roll and cut the dough. We aren’t recommending you make it yourself but it’s one reason it is plentiful in stores.
If you want to be extra healthy there are whole wheat spaghettis and also spaghetti made from chickpeas. Both of these spaghetti are better for anyone dealing with diabetes or pre-diabetes.
There are stores that carry fresh pasta and while it might be a bit more expensive it is extra delicious. Look for different sauces there too.
Whatever type of spaghetti you choose and whatever sauce, remember that you can always add vegetables to up the nutrition. Let your creative side lead the way and eat the vegetables that you like. Add a nice salad with a homemade dressing. You’ll have a very nutritious and delicious mea.
