Spaghetti is a long, thin, solid, cylindrical noodle pasta. It is long – like a string (hence the name, as spago means string) – round in cross-section. Originally, spaghetti was served like any other kind of pasta, with only olive oil and cheese. Only at the beginning of the 18th century did spaghetti begin to be served with tomato sauce. Today, spaghetti may be served with meat sauce, seafood, vegetables, cheeses or sausages.
