Does spaghetti give you quick energy?
Pasta does not give you quick energy. Pasta is made up of complex carbohydrates that provide slow-release energy. However, it is important to note that while pasta may be low in sources of quick energy, there is a significant amount of sugar in spaghetti sauce. Sugar is a simple carbohydrate, which means it provides quick energy. Assuming "spaghetti" is a combination of both pasta and spaghetti sauce, I would say it is a source of both quick and slow-releasing energy.
