I am a big fan of the classic dish, Spaghetti and Meatballs. Noticed I said dish? That is because it is the perfect form factor for serving Spaghetti and Meatballs. Okay, so dish can be a pretty wide term. So a plate or maybe a bowl? Oh or one of those things that is halfway between a bowl and a plate? A powl? Those would all work very well for Spaghetti and Meatballs.
But in this retro ad for Chef Boyardee, we see the strangest attempt to class up this pasta dish since my ill-fated spaghetti gun. They put a heaping helping of Spaghetti and Meatballs in a parfait glass! Which is concept sounds interesting and it is interesting to look at, but I think if it does anything, it makes the food inside look less appetizing.
So this weekend, if you are trying to spice up a powl of Spaghetti and Meatballs, why not do something like add some cheese or red pepper and lay off experimenting with glassware. If someone had figured out a better way to serve this stuff, they would have done it a long time ago.
