Macaroni ~ Persian Style Spaghetti

Macaroni ~ Persian Style Spaghetti

Macaroni, also known as Persian Spaghetti, is a dish where Iranian and Italian cuisines come together. However, I think that most Italians would be horrified at the fact that the noodles are overcooked; yet, I think that they will certainly be fascinated by the spaghetti tahdig. To me this is definitely a comfort food. There is something truly magical about the Spaghetti Tahdig and to be honest with you the greasiness of this recipe. Traditionally Iranians either use large spaghetti or a thick noodles such bucatini.
