Make a yummy Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Flying Spaghetti Monster! Yum!

Flying Spaghetti Monster! Yum!

So… I decided to make a FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monster) out of a radical combination: Spaghetti and meatballs.  No, these aren’t just stacks of spaghetti, with meatballs on top, these are true meatball creatures… suitable for your own Flying Spaghetti Monster, or whatever you’d like to create!

I used a technique similar to the one I used for the Halloween Cephalopods (thanks to Filth Wizardry for the idea!).


  • Frozen Swedish Meatballs (I used the ones from Ikea), 2 per monster. (Defrosted)
  • Thin Spaghetti, dry.
  • Several tubular noodles (I had some elbows on hand, but this would probably work better with a larger type.)*
  • Green peas for eyeballs.


  1. Fill your largest pot with water and place on stove  to boil.
  2. Stab a long noodle into your meatball.  Stab a second meatball on to your noodle.
  3. Repeat so they are stuck together.
  4. Continue stabbing your 2 meatballs with 1/2 to 1/3 length dry spaghetti noodles (see pic).  Leave some open areas for the meatballs to show.
  5. Insert a tubular noodle into each meatball to serve as an eyestalk.
  6. Place in boiling water until noodles are soft.
  7. Remove, cool, and insert a pea (or a piece of a pea) in each eyestalk for the eyeball.

Organize on a plate, and enjoy!  Add sauce as desired…

Caveat:  I did have issues with the eye stalk noodles falling off.  Perhaps they would have worked better with a larger diameter noodle.  I’ll also be experimenting on alternate eye stalks!

    The plan was to use just normal spaghetti sauce. Although my 4 yr old, who ended up eating these, just liked to eat them plain!

    When yoս share a computer with several other websіtеs you are basіcally shɑring the
    ѕɑme system resources so if the machine only has 1 GB of RAM if
    you install a sϲript which uses 500 MΒ of RAM the otɦer 50 sites which might be shаring
    tҺe same environment will bе affected because your site is
    already consuming half of the sƴstem resοurces. Unlike phоne video confeгencing

    One must bеar in mind that a shared hosting plan utilizes all the CΡU time, memory and disk space.
    You have a place where you can test yоur web projects, ɑ place to store all the
    multimedia files that are played at netwߋrk-enabled players in your home,
    and a separate machine tо run a torrent client. Αll your crucial
