Spaghetti is one of my favorite dishes, but sometimes eating the same recipe over and over can get boring. Here’s a list of 27 ways to make your family something different.
Grandpa Frank's Spaghetti Sauce
It is based on my Grandpa Frank’s amazing red sauce, or gravy or whatever you call the red stuff you put on spaghetti or pasta. My Rhode Island born, best friend who’s 100% Italian and I have had “arguments” about what this sauce is called; she always called it gravy and I called it spaghetti sauce.
Gravy for me is that brown stuff you pour over mashed potatoes, but regardless of what you call it; gather the ingredients and make it; East or West Coast!
How to cook the perfect Pasta
If you have eaten pasta and you found it boring and mushy, chances are that you ate a poorly cooked pasta. Because it is so easy to over cook pasta and therefore arrive at an unpalatable pasta dish.

Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese - an alternative recipe to traditional spaghetti bolognese
Preparing vegan spaghetti bolognese has never been easier! All you need are the right ingredients and substitutes, so make sure you have everything ready before cooking. Instead of using meat such as minced beef, you use pulses.
In this case I use adzuki beans but lentils can be used as well. You won’t even notice the difference between a traditional bolognese recipe and this vegan spaghetti bolognese. Enjoy!
Pressure Cooker Spaghetti And Homemade Meatballs Recipe
Pressure Cooker Spaghetti And Homemade Meatballs is a one-pot meal that tastes like it’s been slow cooking for hours, but comes together in about 30 minutes, give or take a few minutes depending on how fast you make the meatballs.
If you’re not familiar with the term Bolognese, it is basically a thick meaty tomato sauce. Like many terms, we in America have widely adopted this one for our meat sauce used in pasta dishes. This sauce is perfect over spaghetti or other pasta of choice. It can also be used in a lasagna dish.

One of the most classic American meals is spaghetti and garlic bread. I remember as a kid it was the only Italian food I knew, except for maybe pizza.

Easy Camping Meals - One Pot Spaghetti
There aren’t many comforts of home I miss when we’re out camping. Sure, a regular toilet would be nice. Maybe a 10 or 15 minute hot shower so I can shave my legs? (Nah… I really don’t miss that part at all!)
But I do sometimes miss good old comfort food that’s been simmering on the stove for hours. And homemade spaghetti sauce is right up there at the top of the list! But we all know by now that I’m all about easy camping meals.

Pasta with Chicken, Tomato, Mushroom and White Truffles
While traveling through the Umbria region of Italy, I came across more and more dishes using one of the prized ingredients of this area – white truffles.

Which is one reason I was so excited to plant my feet here and start eating – and cooking.
