Spaghettieis (German pronunciation: [ʃpaˈɡɛtiˌaɪs]) is a German ice cream made to look like a plate of spaghetti. It was created by Dario Fontanella in the late 1960s in Mannheim, Germany. In the dish, vanilla ice cream is extruded through a modified Spätzle press or potato ricer, giving it the appearance of spaghetti. It is then placed over whipped cream and topped with strawberry sauce (to simulate tomato sauce) and either coconut flakes, grated almonds, or white chocolate shavings to represent the parmesan cheese. Although it is not well known outside Germany, it can be found at some gelaterias and specialty ice cream parlors, at special events and at some hotels and restaurants around the world.
