It’s National Spaghetti day!  Most people immediately think of the long noodles with a tomato and meat sauce, but the word refers simply to the pasta!

Spaghetti is from the Italian word that means “thin string” or “twine”.  A perfect name for the long, thin noodles!  Americans have eaten the stuff for over 100 years!

Well this is a perfect day to share our Pasta of the Month:

  • 6 oz. dry whole wheat spaghetti (about 3 cups cooked)
  • 1 bunch of spinach, washed and stems removed
  • 6-8 oz. cooked chicken breast
  • 1 ½ oz. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
