Actor Robert Pattinson’s Hand-Held Pasta Sandwich! A Chef Made It! Here’s The Recipe! “What The Friday!?!?!”

Talk About A Headline!

When I saw this, I had to read it twice:

“Fire and nausea: I made Robert Pattinson’s ungodly pasta recipe”

First of all, why did the Actor have an “ungodly” pasta recipe, and secondly, what made it so?

For this “What The Friday” edition, I am about to show you THIS!

What A Food Mashup! A Pasta Sandwich

Yes, it’s a pasta sandwich you can hold! And it’s real!

The actor revealed his idea for pasta ‘you can hold in your hand’ in an interview, and wait until you see what’s in it!

It is called “Piccolini Cuscino”, the “little pillow”, and was revealed by the actor in a GQ interview this week!

According to the article, the Actor’s fascination with this culinary experiment began began when he asked himself two simple questions: “[What if] pasta really had the same kind of fast-food credentials as burgers and pizzas” and “How do you make a pasta which you can hold in your hand?” His invention would be called the “Piccolini Cuscino,” he told GQ. In Italian, it means “Little Pillow.”

In the article, Pattinson makes the piccolini cuscino while talking to the interviewer, and the writer notes that the Actor continually burns his hands, sets a latex glove on fire and blows up his microwave!

The Wacky Recipe Revealed!

Here is the best part: the recipe!

Get ready to mashup pasta with sliced cheese, sugar, and cornflakes!

The Actor-turned-Culinary Wizard says he came up with his recipe when trying to think of a way to make pasta have “fast-food credentials”, and even pitched it to the restaurateur Lele Massimini. “I was trying to figure out how to capitalize in this area of the market,” he tells GQ. “And I was trying to think: how do you make a pasta which you can hold in your hand?”

So next up, an enterprising Writer from The Guardian made it! Here’s his first take on the result:

Mamma mia. The first thing that hits you when you eat piccolini cuscino is the sugar. And not just the taste of it, but the crunch. The grains have barely dissolved at all, and why would they? How does Pattinson not mention this? How is he OK with it?

The six slices of cheese have congealed into a semi-melted base. The recipe seems to suggest that you eat piccolini cuscino with the bun on the bottom and sugary, cheesy cornflakes on top. But then why burn PC into the bun on the other side, if that’s going on the bottom where no one can see it?

If there’s one saving grace of the bizarre concoction, it’s that the mix of ingredients can only be so disgusting. It’s almost impossible to ruin pasta, tomato sauce, bread and cheese although, thanks to all the sugar, it comes pretty close. But it’s not as terrible as I thought it would be. It’s edible. I’m able to eat a few mouthfuls.


Here’s what Pattinson’s piccolini cuscino includes:

One “filthy” box of cornflakes
A lighter
Nine packs of pre-sliced cheese
“Just any sauce”
The top half of a bun
Lots of sugar

And the final result:

Want to make it yourself? I do!

Here is the entire article, with step-by-step directions, thanks to The Guardian:

Of course, taking common foods and “tweaking them” is nothing new…rmemeber this?

Yes, this is “Cheese Tea” – talk about a unique mashup, but many swear by it! Would you try it?

  1. Anything involving a fistful.of pasta in a sloppy sauce is alright by me. Thanks for the coffebreak.

  2. Hand held pasta is a great idea! I wonder if it would work if I made mac and cheese and put it in my waffle maker. It works with hash browns. 🙂


  3. Wow John, you finally found something I’m not interested in trying.

    Neither of these has any hope of tasting decent. Cheese tea rates right down there with lettuces flavored jello and that pasta challenge could be solved with almost any eatable pasta dish and a single tortilla. Add a favorite cheese and use a microwave (correctly) to melt it all together if needed.

    On the other hand, I once did up a corn flake batter for some abalone steaks from a dive trip I did with my father, so I applauded to see that someone else finally used them for something other than breakfast.

    Fun stuff John.
    Stay safe and keep ’em coming.


  4. I have a crush on Robert Pattinson since the Twilight days(like many women out there). But I am not quite sure about his invention piccolini cuscino 🙂

  7. This looks like my homemade killer Mac and Cheese, when we bake the leftovers. They’re so good, and very different than the first round. But, cornflakes and sugar and sliced cheese? Hmmm….

    • I know, right? Is your killer mac’n’cheese handheld? I’d love the recipe either way!

      Liked by 1 person

      • My killer mac&cheese is creamy on the first go-round. Leftovers can be handheld. Win-win! Recipe is easy (remember, I’m the non-cook.) Cook a box of pasta with a little less time than it calls for, bow ties are my favorite, but shells or rotini work well. Grocery stores have a bagged shredded cheese blend, Swiss and cheddar. After draining the cooked pasta, I put it in the casserole dish and mix in two (or three) tablespoons of butter. Then I add one and a half bags of the shredded cheese blend and mix as thoroughly as I can. I then mix and slowly add a quarter to a half cup of milk. This all takes elbow grease. And quantities of butter or milk or cheese can vary. It’s like grandma’s cooking, nothing is set in stone. The type of cooked pasta can dictate a little more of something. Adding cooked and chopped ham or kielbasa or bacon is a yummy addition. I bake it at least 30 minutes, maybe 40. So good!


  8. let us know how it turns out, and yes to cheese and pasta and bread, not sure about the sugar element, but i’d be happy to try a bite –

  9. I doubt I could stomach cheese tea. But I would try eating a ‘little pillow’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  11. Bread and pasta seems a bit overkill to me, John, but I see no reason why it can’t work. A bit like a chip butty. I like all tea, and cheese could be interesting.
