Turning Flat Sheets Of Pasta Into (Nearly) Instant Meals

June 1, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston have developed a type of pasta comprising flat sheets of edible gelatin and starch. When submerged in water, they instantly expand into 3D structures, including pasta shapes like macaroni, rigatoni and rotini. While the idea of shape-shifting sheets of pasta is fun, there is a practical idea behind it. Even when packed perfectly, the researchers found, 67 percent of a box of pasta is air. Shipping and packaging costs could be saved if the product were shipped flat to consumers who would then turn the sheets into a meal.  [Image Credit: ©   Michael Indresano Production / MIT]
