The ideal setting for serving traditional Italian cuisine is at the family dinner table. Even though homemade pasta is the best, some home cooks still choose dry spaghetti because it is more practical.
To prepare a quick and simple supper, just make a brief trip to the grocery shop. However, concerns regarding the quality and food safety of an increasing number of global brands are being voiced.
