I love spaghetti and my grandmother made the best meatballs and spaghetti sauce. Fortunately, she taught me and three or four times a year, I prepare an enormous batch. I don’t love to cook, but I do appreciate great food; it takes two days to make the meatballs and prepare the sauce (I cook the sauce for about 6-8 hours).
Celebrate National Spaghetti Day this Saturday, January 4th either at home or one my favorite Italian restaurants in and around Los Angeles:
1) Celestino in Pasadena
2) il Pastaio (I meet my girlfriend from Rome here once a year – it’s our annual luncheon spot)
3) Drago in Downtown Los Angeles – Downtown is closer than you think, I have another girlfriend who works Downtown and this is another great spot for us to meet
4) Café Sole in La Canada
5) Trattoria Amici at Glendale’s Americana at Brand
