If you want to eat spaghetti with your hands and still looks like an adult, these spaghetti and meatball poppers are for you.
Spaghetti with meatballs is a classic meal, and one of my personal favorites. I remember being a kid and making a huge mess of myself while eating spaghetti. My face and hands would be covered in sauce, and noodles would be all over my clothes. But I was happy as a clam.
Unfortunately, as an adult, getting messy with your spaghetti a somewhat frowned upon. Especially if you’re out at a restaurant, or wearing nice clothing, eating spaghetti requires a certain delicacy and etiquette. But I would bet that most of us have a little nostalgia for the days when eating spaghetti with your hands wasn’t so gauche.
