Here in Italy Spaghetti are often served with a tomato sauce, which may vary: to a simple basil and tomato base, herbs and other ingredients may be added.
Fun fact: most people around the world can’t cook our famous “pasta al dente”. Pasta should be cooked in a large pot of boiling salted water, at a rolling boil, following the cooking time reported on the package, and drained when still a little firm, not mushy.
