    14 Times The US Committed Crimes Against Pasta

    If I had a penne for every time someone ruined pasta...

    1. Everyone has made some questionable pasta choices. I get it...

    Maybe you put ketchup on your pasta. Will I judge you for it? Yes. Is it an abomination? Not necessarily.

    2. But sometimes people take it WAY. TOO. FAR.

    Like these rings of pasta glued into unsettling doughnut shapes.

    3. Like, wayyy too far...

    Or these strands of spaghetti threaded through sliced hot dogs...

    4. Just look at these deep-fried mac 'n' cheese bites coated in crushed Cheetos and then REFORMED INTO A DAMN CHEETO SHAPE.

    5. Or how about these noodles being used as a sandwich filling?

    This is just wrong...

    6. Or even worse, how about some spaghetti noodles STAINED WITH FOOD DYE?

    That's spaghetti, people. RAINBOW. SPAGHETTI.

    7. Why would you do this to pasta?!

    8. Whose idea was it to stuff a bread bowl with EVEN MORE CARBS?

    This is truly an affront to penne!

    9. Treating pasta this way is a damn crime....

    What did pasta ever do to deserve this kind of treatment?

    10. Pasta stuffed into a taco shell?

    Yep. That happened...

    11. Pasta stuffed into bagels and burger buns?

    Yep, that happened, too..

    12. Or what about this sad interpretation of pasta e fagioli?

    Pasta e fagioli is an Italian masterpiece, NOT a plate of watery ramen topped with canned beans.

    13. Lasagna? Yep, we ruined that too...


    Because not everything is better deep-fried, ESPECIALLY not pasta.

    14. One more. I promise it's almost over...

    I'm so sorry, Italy.
