“I think it’s brilliant. I think my kids would love spaghetti tacos. In fact, if I didn’t have to come to this event tonight, I was going to go home and make my kids spaghetti meatball tacos. I would put a bolognese with lots of tomatoes and mini meatballs. I think soft taco, not hard. If I wanted to do a Mexicali riff, I’d do soft tacos. You could riff and do branzino tacos with arugula salad and Tuscan olive oil and avocados and soft corn tortillas.” —Joe Bastianich at last night’s Magic Martinis & Mario event, coming out in favor of spaghetti tacos.
