Usually made from semolina flour, this long, thin, cylindrical pasta of Italian and Sicilian origin has been a worldwide favorite for ages. There are various pasta dishes based on spaghetti, and the sauce is what differentiates most of them. Some examples include spaghetti ala Carbonara, garlic, and oil, tomato sauce, meat sauce, bolognese, Alfredo sauce, clam sauce, and many more. In March 2010, the world record for the largest bowl of spaghetti was set when a Buca di Beppo in Huntington Beach neighbor, Garden Grove, filled a swimming pool with more than 13,780 pounds of pasta!
Spaghetti is a fun, communal dish because it's oftentimes so much to eat that you need to share it with other people. Check out these places in Huntington Beach where you can gather 'round a table and share a big pile of pasta.
