You could get excellent effects by using tri-colour spaghetti. Tartans for scottish ex-pats (ie most scottish people!) for burns night!

(Thanks for the spelling pointers zippyanna)

       Would this be something I could have in the home? Could I create spaghetti sheets to match the tablecloth? Seasonal sheets with pumpkins, holly, flags? Ravighetti?

       say what?

       Yep, I'm visualising something like a knitting machine that you could put patterns into.

       It would work best with fresh pasta, though; dried would usually crack & cooked isn't very strong.   

       OTOH, it could be combined with one of the many machines that make pasta-making easier.   

       I think Play-Doh, etc., had similar contraptions when I was young.   

       (I've been seeing striped ravioli a lot lately. Black & yellow, for one thing. Is this new?)

       Yes, it's made out of wasps.

       Spaghetti baskets to keep the meatballs from rolling away! Have some fresh bread to go with your pasta.

       dare99, to correct the title spelling, simply insert an 'h' between the 'g' and the 'e'. Much, much easier for you to do it than the owner of this web site to do so. Though she will if she sees it, jutta has better things to do.

       Oops missed one. I have become lazy from years of spell checked documents (can you get a browser spell checker?).
dare99, Jan 22 2002
  

       I doubt it, but you can compose your posts in a word processor, check them there, and then paste them in.

       You STILL missed one! (You got the subtext, but missed the title...)
mwburden, Jan 22 2002
  

       This could spawn a whole new art form.
phoenix, Jan 22 2002
  

       What? The mispellings or the pasta?   

       [dare99] you should weave up an example and post a photo. Maybe you could make a pasta quilt.

       Haggis, neeps and Black Watch tartan linguini. Hmmm....

       You'll get a tighter weave with angel hair.
waugsqueke, Jan 22 2002
  

       Works for me.

       Paglio e fieno tessere (straw and hay weave)
bristolz, Jan 22 2002
  

       Why stop at simple weaving?
With Spaghetti Macrame, you could not only weave a tartan, but you could created an individual woven 'basket of pasta for each person in the shape of a small scotsman in kilt complete with Sporan.
The mind boggles at the opportunties, particularly for a suitable woven receptacle for puttanesca sauce...

       Kilted sausages anyone?
mcscotland, Jan 25 2002
  

       what do you have against lasagna noodles?
rebekkahshiri, Jan 25 2002
  

       Nothing at all, just thought that woven spaghetti would leed to an interesting texture, to say nothing of the artistic endevours come up with here

       [goff] in re: Spaghetti Macrame - with meatballs instead of beads?
