Step 2: What tools you'll need

What tools you'll need.

Large bowl

Saran wrap

1 cup measuring cup

1/2 cup measuring cup

1/4 teaspoon

1/8 teaspoon

small plate

Chopsticks

Again let me say CHOPSTICKS

These are hearty treats and little skewers will not hold up.

Step 3: Making the Spagetti "Pops"

3 cups cooked pasta
2 eggs
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
½ cup Grated Parmesan
½ tsp Crushed Red Pepper
½ tsp Onion Flakes
½ tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp oregano

Take all the for mentioned ingredients (except for the bread crumbs) and mix them in a large bowl until well combined.

It's a good idea to try and mix eggs and ricotta in bowl first.

Then fold in pasta.

Add spices, and cheese.

Again do not add the bread crumbs yet!

Step 4: Forming the Pops

With the Chopsticks use a twirling motion to wrap the pasta around the chopstick.

Try and wind the pasta as tightly as possible (IT'S OKAY TO USE YOUR HANDS JUST WASH THEM)

Spread bread crumbs on a small plate.

Roll pasta pop in the bread crumbs and wrap tightly in saran wrap.

Repeat till pops are all wrapped.

NOW FREEZE

Step 5: Time to COOK

Heat approximately one cup of oil over medium high heat.

Always heat pan before adding oil.

Once oil starts to ripple and little wisps of smoke appear, add the pops!

Cook to a lite brown on each side, making sure to hold the pop up in the pan as to cook the end. 

This secures the pop on the stick.

Remove pops and place on tinfoil or baking sheet into a preheated oven (325-350)

Cook for another 8 minutes, turning twice.

Remove and let cool.

Just tried it with angel-hair pasta and a lemon butter (kinda similar to an alfredo) dipping sauce. Noms. (Only way I've EVER gotten my 4 year old to try lemon butter sauce. Thanks!)

ONE CUP!

Does it seem like too much? I guess it depends on the pan you use, The larger the better, a shallow amount of oil. No deep frying, lol.
Its waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much!! maximum of a few tablespoons
