It's National Spaghetti Day

Get out the pasta and pick your favorite sauce.  It's National Spaghetti Day!

I like my spaghetti best when it's piled atop mashed potatoes.  #CarbOverload

I had no idea that there was a national spaghetti day that is cool because I love it. I live it the traditional way with meat balls and red sauce.
