People are constantly claiming that on-screen beauties stick to several diets, restricting themselves from eating a lot of delicious things. Of course, that is partly true since, in an effort to look perfect, many are starving and don’t allow themselves any culinary excesses. However, Sophia Loren wasn’t one of them. She loved to eat! She adored food so much that even published a book with her favorite dishes.

Like any Italian, Sophia loved pasta. It was her favorite dish. Even in her interviews, she used to say:

Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.

  4. Add nutmeg.
