Shots for everyone, I’m buyin’ 😳! Okay, all kidding aside, I don’t do shots. At least not the kind they’re serving up at the local tavern tonight.

Pull up a stool, and I’ll tell you a story about how these “Repurposed Thrift Store Shot Glasses: Pasta Shots” came to the table!

When I was a little redhead, I remember stealing my mom’s freshly strained hot spaghetti noodles from the colander when she wasn’t looking πŸ˜‰. We had one of those big stainless steel cone shaped strainers. Do you remember those back in the 70’s? Still to this day, I have a thing for stealing, I mean eating steaming hot noodles fresh from the strainer. It doesn’t matter what shape, they all make me happy.

So, continuing on with the noodle story πŸ˜†…I was recently watching one of my favorite shows where they were celebrating with “Pasta Shots”. It was actually meant to be a joke on the show, but I thought to myself, wait a minute! That sounds like fun. I didn’t get a real good look at the “Pasta Shots” in the show, but I quickly managed to think up my own version. Ta dah…”Thrift Store Shot Glasses: Pasta Shots” was officially created, and stealing from the strainer is no longer required!

Before I go any further, I want to make it pasta clear that these are not bloody Mary’s and don’t have any alcohol.

These cute pasta shots would be fun for kids, adults, heck even grandma would love them. They are meant to be a fun appetizer for any event you feel comfortable sharing them.

How to make Pasta Shots

Both versions of the pasta shots were very simple to create. If you don’t have shot glasses I promise your local thrift store does.

After you clean the shot glasses, simply add your favorite tomato sauce (after you heated it up) to the shot glass with a small spoon. Here’s my favorite tomato sauce recipe, or my favorite store bought tomato sauce in a jar.

I used ziti noodles (cooked al dente in salted water) to slide on to a shish kabab stick that I cut in half with wire cutters. Keep in mind you may have to cut off a few threads left over from the shish kabob skewer bamboo stick.

Lastly, for the meatballs, I used my chicken meatball recipe, but used lean ground beef this time in place of the ground chicken. I also made my meatballs very small so they would fit into the shot glass.

These pasta shots can be served hot, warm, or even room temperature. Just make sure you cover them with plastic wrap if your guests aren’t arriving right away so the noodles won’t dry out.

    Hi Julie:
    What a cute idea. Maybe you could put thin pieces of asiago or any Italian cheese in between the noodles.
    Your imagination astounds me!!

    Cheers, Bette
