“A pasta dish for the family that makes the best of canned food” – this is how the “BBC” announces its latest recipe idea. But the shot clearly backfires, because the recipe is “Spaghetti Hawaii.” Not only does the recipe get 1.5 stars underground on the site itself, but the recipe is also a topic of conversation on Twitter.
War against Italy?
For “fast food” you should cook onions, garlic, ham, cream and pineapple cubes in the sun. The pineapple juice is then added to the sauce before it is mixed with the spaghetti. “Definitely a declaration of war against Italy,” wrote one Twitter user:
Another user comments that this war started in 1957 with spaghetti sticks:
Historian here: * In fact * The BBC-Italian War began on April 1, 1957, with the Spaghetti Panorama Tree.

The reactions to the preparation of the special recipe are certainly clear:
Maybe not so bad after all
For many Italians, the heart bleeds even at Pizza Hawaii. And now spaghetti with pineapple? What seems strange at first may be worth a try. Hawaiian pizza, which was accidentally invented in Canada in 1962, is one of the most popular dishes ordered in eastern Switzerland.
Toast Hawaii, a classic from Germany, is also very popular. The dish has been known in Switzerland since the 1950s and in 2013 was one of the ten most googled recipes. Whether Spaghetti Hawaii will make it that far remains a mystery.
The idea of fruit and pasta is not new
However, one thing is clear: “BBC” was not the first to come up with the idea of mixing pineapple and ham with pasta. There are tons of similar recipes on portals like “Chefkoch”, “Kochbar” or “Gutekueche”. Among them are unusual creations mixed with peas, tomatoes or chicken. And the rating of up to five stars shows that the unique idea has at least a few fans.
Will you try Spaghetti Hawaii?
Begum! I love pineapple and also Pizza Hawaii is absolutely delicious.
I do not know. Hawaiian pizza and Hawaiian toast aren’t my thing either.
At all! There is no fruit in my diet.
