Spaghetti is the most common thin and long rounded type of pasta.  In Italian, it is translated to”little lines.”  In 1839, the Duke of Buonvicino created “Vermicelli co le pommodore.”  This started the use of tomato sauce in cooking spaghetti.  Prior to this, tomatoes were thought of as poisonous and were not yet used for cooking.

Boiling the dried noodles and served with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese is its traditional preparation. Records show, however, that it was the Arabs, during the 5th century, who created and brought the dried noodles to other countries.  It was, however, the Italians who revolutionized it by inventing an assortment of pasta shapes.
