Have you heard about Spaghetti Pie? Well, if not, now is the time for you to hear about it. Spaghetti Pie for dinner, anyone? “We’d love to!” Great! It’s good to know that I'm not alone in this one. Spaghetti and Pie rolled into one? Well… I can't wait! However, we have to. *uuh’s* I know you're all excited but would it be more exciting if we fill our minds with spaghetti and pie information first? “Hmm… that’s a great idea! Why wouldn't we?” Right! So, what are we waiting? Let’s start, people! *winks*
Well, spaghetti's first? Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical, and solid pasta. The word ‘spaghetti’ is a plural form of ‘spaghetto’ that is an Italian word. It comes from the word ‘spago’ which means ‘thin string’ or ‘twine' and it is from ground grain and water. So, where is this delicious stuff invented? Invented in China, some say that Marco Polo brought the idea with him to Italy; a spaghetti made from either rice flour or hard wheat flour. However, others also claim that spaghetti is from Ancient Greece. Tomato sauce is the most commonly used spaghetti dressing. And here’s a trivia, guys! The longest spaghetti strand of pasta is achieved by LAWSON INC. in Japan on October 20, 2010, and it is 12,388 feet and 5 inches long.
Let’s go to pies! Yey! Pie is a “baked dish that is made up of a pastry dough casing that covers or completely contains a filling of various sweet or savoury ingredients.” There are two types of pies: the sweet and savoury. Some examples of sweet pies are apple, banoffee, custard, and lemon pie. For savoury pies, we have egg, meat, fish, mushroom, and pot pie. Pie’s origins originated by the Greeks who are known to have invented pastry shells. So… the largest pie? Well, 17 catering students from Stratford-upon-Avon College in the United Kingdom have made the largest pie weighing 10.54 tons on April 12, 1998. 10 tons, people. 10 tons.
So, what now guys? Are you up for the challenge? *winks* The largest and longest spaghetti pie ever? “Nah, we're good. We just want to try this spaghetti pie and live happily ever after.” Yes, me too.
