Who’s Hungry? This “Twilight” Actor Is!
This day began when I read this headline:
“Fire and nausea: I made Robert Pattinson’s ungodly pasta recipe”
What – WHAT!?!?!?!
First of all, why did the Actor have an “ungodly” pasta recipe, and secondly, what made it so “ungodly”?
Well, it IS “What The Friday”, so I have to show you THIS!
The Mystery Of Robert Pattinson’s “Little Pillow” Revealed!
Yes, it’s pasta – served in a unique 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 as his favorite meal!
According to an interview the “Twilight” star gave last year, the Actor’s fascination with this culinary experiment 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!
Is this how Julia Child got her start?
The Wacky Recipe Revealed!
Here is the best part: the recipe!
Get ready to mashup pasta with sliced cheese, sugar, and cornflakes!
Giving Pasta “Fast Food” Credentials!
As with all great food creations, it’s begins with an idea.
In this case, 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?”
How indeed…well. here’s how!
Of course, this recipe had to be put to the test!
So next up, an enterprising Writer from UK’s newspaper 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.
You Want The Recipe? Of Course You Do!
Here’s what goes into Pattinson’s “Piccolini Cuscino”:
One “filthy” box of cornflakes
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!

Of course, I don’t want to offend the next “Batman”, but Robert Pattinson should know that you don’t make a “pasta sandwich”, you want a “pasta pie”:
And the great film “Big Night” shows you exactly how to make it – and I do too!
