Hey Pesto!

Does anybody else think that there could be a market for shorter spaghetti?

Can't you just snap it in 3 before cooking it, like everyone else? Great blog by the way.

Just use a long fish kettle to cook standard length spaghetti.

If you don't like long spaghetti, why buy spaghtetti in the first plae? Maccaroni are similar and very much shortr.....or try tagliatelle.

Slurping is half the fun.

A few years ago I was on a business trip to Italy. One evening, I had spaghetti to eat (=dribble everywhere and generally throw about the restaurant)

The next day I told my Italian colleagues I thought the restaurant had served me extra long spaghetti because I was English. They misunderstood and thought I meant that the spaghetti was one long piece.

This could open the floodgates for a range of shorter food. When cooking for one I find that half a leek often goes to waste. And I could probably handle a whole leg of lamb if crossed with a dachshund.

Yes there would be a market for it. If people are daft enough to pay extra for ready-chopped mushrooms and grated cheese and other pre-prapared veg then you're onto a surefire winner.
Give it a sexy name and watch the money come rolling in!

I normally prepare diet spaghetti by snapping ordinary spaghetti in half before putting it in the saucepan.

Because it's half the length, it's only half the calories.

And because it's only half the calories, I can have twice as much!

Aw, I don't think there's a market, no. Snap the spaghetti or use the smaller shapes.
