frequently or have been avoiding carbs for awhile, consider the day an excuse to indulge in every fork-twirling, sauce covered bite. From trying new recipes to taking a class, there are a variety of ways to celebrate the day and one of your favorite types of pasta.

Try new recipes

When thinking of recipes to make on National Spaghetti Day, your standard sauce and pasta dish may come to mind, but there are so many more to try as well. For a quick recipe, Spaghetti alla Corbonara takes less than 30 minutes to make and involves using delicious ingredients such as bacon, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and garlic cloves. For those who aren't big on spaghetti sauce, Lemon Spaghetti is a good alternative. Rather than cook the entire entree on the stove, consider making Baked Spaghetti, which starts on the stove but ends in the oven. You can, of course, make the standard but still delicious Spaghetti and Meatballs or Italian Sausage Spaghetti.

Buy new products

There are quite a few products to try that can help with making and eating your spaghetti even better. Twirling the spaghetti is one of the best parts of eating it, but if you're bored of the traditional method, consider the motorized Twirling Spaghetti Fork. If you're ready to make spaghetti at home, a pasta machine is going to become one of your best friends. While you're eating, you may want to sprinkle a little salt and pepper on your food, in which case, the adorable Garfield Eating Spaghetti Salt & Pepper Shaker Set is going to be a great addition to your table.

Take a class

If you want to learn to make a variety of spaghetti dishes, there are several classes you can take at The Institute of Culinary Education. One option is Pasta 101, which is a $110 class where you'll learn to make a variety of pasta dishes including Spaghetti Carbonara. There is also the $115 class Perfect Pasta Fresh & Dried where you'll learn to make several dishes including Spaghettini with Neopolitan Clam Sauce.

Wear your pasta pride

On National Spaghetti Day, show off your love of the food by wearing pasta pride. One option is to wear a spaghetti-themed shirt, such as the Peace, Love & Spaghetti shirt that comes in a variety of styles and colors. You can also wear a spaghetti and meatball necklace. If you're planning on having people over to celebrate the day with you, put out Spaghetti and Meatball soap for them to use.

With so many ways to celebrate National Spaghetti Day on January 4, you're certainly going to have your fill of the food by the end of the day.
