Spaghetti is a type of pasta that originated in Italy and staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. Many people think that there is no difference between noodles and spaghetti; both are the same, as they both look identical, and both have the same taste. But let me clear this that both noodles and spaghetti are very much different from each other.
Spaghetti is a thin, long, cylindrical pasta which is generally eaten with a fork and is thicker than typical noodles. It is not added to soup and usually served with sauce. On the other hand, Noodles are mainly eaten with chopsticks and can be served with soup also.
Twirling long strands of spaghetti around a folk is one of my guilty pleasures. Every time I eat a plate of spaghetti, I get some sweet “guilt” satisfaction no matter where or why.
