The various shapes of pasta we see today were all influenced directly by their region and the ingredients used in the pastas. Some pasta shapes were made hollow to hold sauce within them, some were created in the noodle format so as to be coated in the sauces. The shape of pasta is perhaps one of the best examples of form following function, and the guys at Monkey Business pushed the boundaries to give the pasta form some more functions! Meet the Spaghetti Spoon, created as a part of Monkey Business’s Pasta Series that envisions popular pasta shapes as kitchen tools. The Spaghetti Spoon, as its name suggests, is a spoon that’s designed to resemble strands of al-dente spaghetti. Created from heat-resistant plastic, the spoon’s uniquely appetizing shape is perfect for scooping and transferring any sort of noodle-based pasta between saucepans or serving plates. Just don’t try biting into it!
