We love Italian food. Maybe it’s because D.J. grew up on it and shared his family recipes that are absolutely mouthwateringly delicious, or maybe it’s because Italian food is my favorite. I’m not sure why, but I know that it’s some of the best stuff in the world, and this National Spaghetti Day, we will be celebrating with a big, heaping bowl of hearty homemade spaghetti with Grandma’s Spaghetti Sauce!
