One of my favorite things about being Italian-American at Thanksgiving is the pasta course. Every year, without fail, we indulge in some of my grandmother's delicious pasta before we dig into the turkey. I actually never knew that this wasn't something that all families did until I got older, but now I know it's a fun tradition in my family. Even when I get older and have children, pasta will always be a part of Thanksgiving.
