“While stationed in Germany, there was a little Italian Ice Cream Shop we loved to go to that served spaghetti ice. Basically it's vanilla ice cream, extruded through a press to resemble pasta noodles, topped with strawberry sauce (the spaghetti sauce), and sprinkled with a little coconut (the parmesan cheese). To make this, you need a ricer--a two handled press to extrude the ice-cream through. There is something about that process that makes the ice cream taste different--sort of like what Diary Queen does to their soft-serve ice cream. Serve this to guest after a nice Italian dinner--they will be so impressed.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Process the strawberries and sugar in a mixer or food processor. Pulse until nearly smooth, but leave a few chunks. This is best done at least a couple of hours before serving to give the strawberries a chance to absorb the sugar.
  2. Press the ice cream through a ricer into a clear glass bowl to make the "pasta". This is not easy. It takes a little time and some muscle power, but it’s worth it.
  3. Top the ice cream (pasta) with the strawberry sauce (spaghetti sauce).
  4. Sprinkle with coconut (the cheese topping).
  5. Serve immediately.
