Spaghetti actually originated in China and Marco Polo first introduced it to Venice, Italy. Spaghetti was originally made from rice flour (China) and later made from hard wheat after arriving in Italy. Marinara sauce was developed in southern Italy and many of the spaghetti sauces we enjoy today are derived from marinara sauces.
My mom would have a box of spaghetti on the counter along with a package of ground beef and tomatoes and I remember staring at it as I knew just in a few minutes she would be plating some delicious goodness at the dinner table. I would rush to the refrigerator in anticipation of grabbing a container of parmesan cheese and of course, it was there and I headed back to the dinner table for everyone to share. Grated parmesan cheese was the final accompaniment to an already spectacular dish.
