Spaghetti recipes are always a big hit at our house. They are cold winter comfort food at their tastiest. There are literally dozens of ways to incorporate a tasty spaghetti sauce into a quick and easy weeknight dinner sensation.
One of my earliest spaghetti recipes was a combination of both beef and pork that became a tradition in my family. I’ve since tweaked it in many different ways to give us the variety we want and the full Italian flavor that we love.
Since January 4 is National Spaghetti Day, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite spaghetti recipes as well as a few from my blogger friends. There is sure to be one that will tempt your family!
