A bizarre recipe that creates a "honeycomb pasta cake" is going viral on TikTok, with viewers not quite sure what to think about it.
Anna Rothfuss, from the US, appeared to be the first person to reveal the unconventional cooking method on her TikTok account @bananalovesyoutoo earlier this year.
Hundreds of others have since tried their luck, including Adrianna Delatorre.
In her video, seen more than 30 million times, she places the paccheri pasta in an upright position inside a cake baking tray, assembling it similar to the shape of a honeycomb.
She then cuts the string cheese up into pasta tube-length pieces and slides them in one by one before pouring the tomato sauce on top.
As the recipe is based on the a traditional spaghetti bolognese, Anna then adds the minced meat and tops it with grated cheese.
She pops it in the oven to bake until the cheese is completely melted.
Anna serves her pasta by slicing a portion out like a cake, saying: "Honeycomb pasta, so good."
But she was quickly flooded with a torrent of negative comments from viewers, who called it "a pain to the eyes".
One Italian chef reviewed the video and jokingly said: "Even the sauce name is asking and begging not to use it.
"Use the ragu sauce, or a meat sauce instead."
Another wrote: "I adore Italian food, this is definitely not that!"
"Urgh it makes me sick," a third added.
But some said it actually looked good and was similar to lasagna.
"Well it's not an Italian dish but I think it has potential to be delicious," a viewer suggested and a second commented: "I made it, it was amazing. One of the best I've ever made."
In other cooking news, a food show host came up with a salad recipe mixing popcorns in dressing sauces.
Viewers were shocked when Food Network presenter Molly Yeh started adding mayonnaise into a bowl of salted popcorns and mixing with greens.
She described the dish as a "crunch on crunch on crunch".
