5 Practical Uses For Uncooked Spaghetti Noodles

You can do a whole lot more with spaghetti noodles than just pair them with a delicious meat sauce and slurp them up! Check out our 5 surprisingly practical uses for your uncooked pasta noodles.

1. Cake Transport

Sure, cakes and pies are great. But getting them from A to B can be kind of tricky. By the time you get to your destination, your baked goods usually look a little worse for the wear. To prevent your beautiful cakes from being destroyed, stick a few dry spaghetti noodles into it and cover with aluminum foil. No matter the distance, your cake will arrive looking perfect.

2. Knife Block

Storing knives in drawers can actually be a safety hazard. It's so easy to cut yourself when they're just lying in there with your other kitchen utensils. That's why you should store them in a separate knife block. But you don't have to run to the store to get one. Just use a tall vessel or container and fill it with dry spaghetti noodles. Voila – your very own knife block.

3. Skewer

Wooden skewers are one of those things that everyone should have in their kitchen but no one actually does. So, the next time you want to put some veggies or meat on a skewer, gently slide them onto dry spaghetti noodles and cook them in a pan or on a grill. Genius, right?

4. Cake Tester

When you're trying to find out if your cake's done, you're going to want to use a skewer. But, as previously established, no one really has those. And spaghetti noodles do the trick just fine!

5. Wall Decoration

You can also use dry spaghetti noodles to create fun wall decorations. Stick the noodles into a styrofoam ball, spray paint the balls and part of the spaghetti noodles, and jazz up your walls or ceiling.

Who would have thought spaghetti noodles could be so versatile? Besides being a beloved food, these noodles make for great helpers around the house. Stick 'em in some cake, hang 'em on a wall, or use 'em to store your knives. These useful home hacks are sure to relieve you of any problems in the kitchen!
