From Chocolate Tortellini to Stringy Pasta Ice Cream

 - Oct 30, 2013
These pasta dishes look like they should taste like a traditional Italian meal, but these creations are not quite what they seem. If you're expecting to be treated to the taste of meatballs and Marinara sauce, you'll be met with a surprise.

These novel dishes infuse pastas with unconventional flavors like beer, potato chips, snack foods and cheeseburgers. These hybrid foods are like eating two different foods at once, which would make for an interesting meal.

Some of these pasta dishes take on the appearance of noodles but are made from completely different ingredients, which is an effective way to fool the eyes even before the taste buds have time to react. Some strange pasta imitations include desserts like cupcakes and ice cream that are made to look like pasta.
