Pasta is a dish loved by countless people across the globe. Whether it's a Fusili or a Penne, Spaghetti or Macaroni - there are so many pasta shapes cooked in a number of different styles. Coming to spaghetti, it's probably one of the most favourite pasta recipes loved by people of all age groups. From Aglio Olio-style or even when eaten with meatballs, there's no beating a delicious bowl of Spaghetti. However, the Italian-style recipe is quite different from the ones we make in our home, and a viral video shows exactly why. This viral video shows why you may have been making spaghetti wrong your entire life. Take a look:
Shared on Instagram by blogger @lifewithlilie, the video has received over 18.8 million views and 707k likes. In the viral video, we see her with a bundle of spaghetti in her hand. She is about to break the spaghetti in her hand into two halves, as is commonly done in many households. However, a voice in the background prompts her not to - one of Michael Scott's famous voiceovers from the hit sitcom 'The Office'.
"Do you break your spaghetti or keep it whole? I grew up in a Haitian household so we break it in half to make it fit into the pot lol. My Italian husband says it's a sacrilege," she explained in the caption.
Several users poured in their reactions and comments to the viral video. Netizens were divided into two groups - one who believed that spaghetti could be broken into two while others who said it was a complete no-no. "Yes break!! With kids, I've considered breaking into fourths," revealed one user while another said, "I never break it unless I'm making it for my son."
