This Pasta Measuring Tool uses humor as a way to indicate how much food is needed in one sitting.

If you have ever heard the phase, "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse," then you automatically know where the inspiration for this tool came from. Designer Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson has created a great way to determine how much pasta is needed for dinner.

There is a hole cut out for a child, a woman and a man. You fit the dry pasta inside the cutout, and that will determine how much is needed. In case you are starving, there is the horse cutout option. This makes four portions, so it is perfect if you are cooking for a family.

This pasta measuring tool is a great way to reduce waste, all the while using humor.
