With National Spaghetti Day (Sunday, January 4th) right around the corner, Chef CJ Bivona has shared with Hamptons.com the recipe for Nonna's Fried Pasta, a dish that has sentimental value for the Executive Chef at Upper East Side Italian favorite Petaluma.

"My fried pasta dish is very near and dear to me," expressed Bivonna. "It's a dish that my grandmother would make for me during the time I spent with her while she was watching me as a young child."

1. Sweat out onions and carrots together; add celery 10 to 12 minutes after.
2. Cook until celery is translucent, reduce heat.

4. Fry with a little olive oil on high.
5. Take the pasta cake out of the container onto the frying pan.
