When I was a kid, spaghetti came in a can. Then I married an Italian - and discovered a whole new world of pasta.
If you can boil water in a saucepan you can cook pasta. If you can cook pasta you will never go hungry, and you’ll be able to impress your mates (buddies) with your culinary skills.
When I was introduced to cooking pasta my wife’s family was still making their own pasta sauce. These days, there are so many varieties of pasta sauce available in the supermarket or speciality Italian food stores, you can enjoy the wide world of pasta without having to know anything about making specialty sauces. You don’t even have to like tomatoes. There are plenty of other sauces to choose from. My only advice is buy the small jar - it usually holds enough sauce for two or three serves - unless you’re entertaining.
