Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical pasta, which was first created in 1842 by Antonio Viviani in Naples. Although the original cut was approximately 50 centimetres in length, modern day Spaghetti has been reduced to 25 centimetres.

Spaghetti is the plural form of the Italian word spaghetto, which is the diminutive of spago, meaning “thin string” or “twine.”

Today, Spaghetti is a symbol of Italy everywhere. No one can resist its delicate, elegant shape and the fascination of twirling it around a fork. As Spaghetti is one of the most versatile shapes, it pairs well with any type of sauce.
