Pasghetti!

8-year-old gourmet fore for four

How to eat pasghetti. First pick out tomato bits with your fork and hide them under the plate—they were left over from making the sauce. Do not sprinkle grated cheese—it stinks like old socks. Mom will cut it up, but she won’t cut it up right. The pasghetti is as long as you are. When she’s not looking, use your hands. Then pretend to use a fork.

Tuscan peasants are busy harvesting spaghetti fields and picking meatballs from meatball trees. As they labor, Tuscan peasants sing this ancient Tuscan song:

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed

It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door

It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.
