Spaghetti Western Dinner

Rantings of an Amateur Chef

Back in mid 1960’s, when westerns were in vogue, an Italian director, Sergio Leone made a little film called Fist full of Dollars. Starring Clint Eastwood, it was a box office hit. While other Westerns had been made in Europe before that point, none really were huge successes.

Originally used as a term of derision, “Spaghetti Westerns” ultimately came to define a style of the Western genre.

This fusion of European film making and American themes proved successful for some and laughable results for others. This is true in many fusion foods. I’ve seen this in some of what I’ve made: success (Irish Egg Rolls, Breakfast Lasagna) and some not as strong (they don’t make the blog). Today I offer up a true Spaghetti Western of food, Barbecue Spaghetti.

The use of pre-made pulled pork really reduces the effort for this dish.
