These are the spaghetti donuts baked by Brooklyn-based Pop Pasta and sold at the Brooklyn Makers Market. They come in a variety of flavors including Aglio e Olio, Red Sauce, Zucchini, Carbonara, and Bolognese. Come on, no Heinz ketchup and Kraft grated parmesan flavor? Five year old me is outraged.
Pop Pasta combines a popular Neapolitan dish, the spaghetti pie (frittata di spaghetti) [a leftover pasta dish mixed with egg and fried] with an American food icon, the donut. Slow food meets fast food. ...This is the perfect food to bring to picnics or to the beach, and it isn't messy like pizza! Pop Pasta is baked and you can hold it in one hand. It is perfect for lunch or for a snack, it comes in different flavors and you can eat it at room temperature or warmed up if you wish.
Wow, who knew spaghetti donuts would be 'the perfect food to bring to picnics or to the beach.' *unpacking picnic basket in scenic meadow* Dammit honey, we forgot the spaghetti donuts! Oh well, at least we remembered the wine. *proceed to make sweet, sensual love atop picnic blanket until fire ants invade anus*
Thanks to Hosie, who's already started experimenting baking lasagna croissants.
