Nothing screams physics like particles and... pasta? Two physicists turned to a bowl of noodles to help explain the complex shapes that ring-shaped polymers can adopt. The researchers have created a brand new ring-shaped pasta called anelloni, named after the Italian word for, well, "ring."
While it's easy to separate a single strand of spaghetti, that's definitely not the case with anelloni. When cooked, the physicist-invented pasta becomes "hugely tangled up," making it nearly impossible to "extract a single piece of pasta."
There's no word on what sauce the noodles best pairs with, but who knows, your local Olive Garden may soon be slinging bowls of anelloni alfredo.
