What a fabulous story and testament to the power of female friendship and support ["Pasta, present & future," Act 2, March 22].

The bond these Spaghetti Dinner Girls share is amazing. They started their annual get-togethers as high school sophmores; what a perfect antivenom to bullying and cliques.

This group should have its own TV show, and we should get rid of the reality "Real Housewives" garbage and show young girls how empowering real friends can be.

Buon appetito!
