One of my husband’s all-time favorite pasta dishes is spaghetti. I make it for him at least two times a month. Spaghetti is one of the most popular meals to make in a household. I’m willing to bet you make it in your home as well.

Garlic bread or cheesy bread is very good to dip into your spaghetti. Once you are done, a slice of the bread can soak up the remaining sauce leftover.

I love to pair my spaghetti with a salad. Sometimes I make a spinach salad with carrots and tomatoes and other times I make a spinach salad with strawberries, blueberries, and almonds. It depends on what I have in the fridge.

Here is my recipe for spaghetti.
