Spaghetti doughnuts are the latest food trend

It looks like there’s a new food trend and this time, it doesn’t involve adding glitter to your food or any mythical unicorns at all.

Instead, the new creation combines two of the greatest comfort foods - spaghetti and ring doughnuts.

The unusual but intriguing creation, called the spaghetti doughnut, comes from New York-based eaterie Pop Pasta and is a savoury take on the sweet and delectable doughnut, made out of fried pasta.

On the website it says: "Pop Pasta combines a popular Neapolitan dish, the spaghetti pie (frittata di spaghetti) with an American food icon, the doughnut. Slow food meets fast food.

"In the Neapolitan tradition the spaghetti pie is a dish prepared with pasta leftovers combined with eggs and cheese and then fried. Traditionally the spaghetti are formed into large round pies and cut into slices.

"This is the perfect food to bring to picnics or to the beach, and it isn't messy like pizza!

"Pop Pasta is baked and you can hold it in one hand. It is perfect for lunch or for a snack, it comes in different flavours and you can eat it at room temperature or warmed up if you wish. The Pop Pasta spaghetti doughnut is a combination of tradition, innovation, originality and quality."

#SpaghettiDonut for later! @pop_pasta has some really awesome people running it!!

At present the restaurant offers five different flavours including Aglio E Olio Pop - which is an infusion of parmigiano, eggs, olive oil, garlic and red pepper - there's the red sauce pop - which includes parmigiano, eggs, tomato purée and olive oil - and the Zucchini Pop with zucchini.

There's also a Carbonara Pop for lovers of the creamy sauce and Bolognese Pop too.
