Spaghetti is a long, thin form of pasta.
It works great with both tomato, cream and oil sauces.
It isn’t so great for pasta salads or baked dishes, or with sauces with large pieces of food in them.
½ pound (225g) uncooked = 2 ½ cups broken uncooked pieces = 4 ½ cups cooked
1 cup of spaghetti (unbroken, standing upright in cup) = 30 oz = 850g
Literature & Lore
“You must not break spaghetti in half to fit into your [pot]. Ever. Not only is it bad luck, but more practically, the short strands will splatter sauce all over your shirt as you try to twirl them around your fork.” Pazzaglia, Laura. Hip Pressure Cooking. New York: St Martin’s Griffin. 2014. Page 129.
In Italian, spaghetti means “little strings”.
