Although not of the younger generation, my sister and I just love pasta! So every now and then we have a spaghetti night just because we love it.
Of course, we've created our own sauce with the pasta (which is wholegrain, much healthier than white one). We make a sauce with lots of onion, mushrooms, red bell peppers, a mix between fresh tomatoes and passata, minced meat and red wine. When the sauce is ready (at best after a day in the cellar) we spread it over the pasta and add grated cheese.
It's a bit of work cutting up all those vegetables, but it's worth the while!
