Evening Entertainment—Spaghetti Ice Cream Watch the famous “spaghetti” ice being made—and then delight in tasting this spectacular ice cream dessert! Created in the 1960s, this scrumptious spaghetti-lookalike is made first by reimagining the pasta. Watch vanilla ice cream as it’s pressed through a potato ricer to resemble spaghetti and then placed on a bed of whipped cream, with strawberry sauce poured over it to represent tomato sauce and almonds or shaved white chocolate sprinkled on top to look like parmesan cheese. Delizioso!
