Octellini

Octopus shapes + tortellini = Octellini

It's tortellini, but with Octellini each stuffed pasta shell is modelled to look like a miniature octopus, complete with dangling tentacles.

Also available as an unstuffed, hard shelled version, that only really looks like an octopus stranded out of water after it is cooked and served up.

       edit - now with shorter name   

       [bigsleep] - it's my nature... how can I help myself? It could have been worse - fish themed and flavoured chocolate liqueurs anyone? See - I spared you that one as a complete idea.

       [+] I like it, but have a few questions:   

       Is it stuffed with octopus, to match the shape?   

       Are the tentacles stuffed, or only the body?   

       Is it available in a ten limbed squid version?
goldbb, Jan 11 2010
  

       It's vegetarian only. Tentacles could be stuffed. Squid version - just for you.

       I wonder how you'd actually make it. Injection-mold?
RayfordSteele, Jan 11 2010
  

       Die cut would be wasteful regarding materials, but injection molding requirements would influence the recipe, perhaps unfavorably.   

       How about hand crafting each piece individually? Collectors would sort through boxes for a prime piece by a revered craftsperson.   

       Collectors would be referred to as pastafarians.

       Pastafarians? Isn't that already the name used for believers in the Flying Spaghetti Monster?   

       Each box should come with a little plastic deep-sea diver & treasure chest.

       I understand a deep-see diver is a waterproof remote-control closed-circuit television camera mounted with powerful spotlights.

       No, it's an emissary from the Pope, in neoprene and SCUBA gear.

       Thanks for the lovely corrections! What I meant, of course, was a small, transparent packet of salty sauce for the pasta, shaped like a bitchy opera singer.

       Too late. The JW's have already been there.
