Pasta O’s and Noodle Ring Day

Today is National Noodle Ring Day. It’s my first share for this particular day. And I gotta tell you, this is a stretch. The only thing “ring” about this dish is that Ring Pasta was used.

Spaghetti with Italian Sausage Beef Meatballs

You know me, if it’s Thursday, then it’s Tuscan Thursday. That means anything Italian will do. And as luck would have it, today is also National Herbs and Spice Day. You can’t very well cook Italian without herbs and spices.

Baked Spaghetti Casserole

Have you ever noticed that something happens when you bake pasta? Take Rigatoni – cook up the pasta, pile on the sauce and cheese and it’s great. Take those same ingredients, mix it all together in a casserole dish and bake it – totally different taste and texture.

Spaghetti is such a versatile pasta. It makes for a great pasta salad, or a pasta side or a pasta main dish. It’s all up to you, and how you like your pasta served.
