Babish cutting boards, rolling pins, tiny whisks, knives and more available now:

This week, we're revisiting the fanciful mind of Seth MacFarlane (my doppelgänger before I shaved my head and grew a beard) and taking a look at Meat-Ghetti and Spag-Balls from American Dad. Is there any way to make this recipe actually work? Turns out, no - but maybe you can. Make your best version of this dish, take a picture, tag me on instagram with and the winner of my choosing will get a cutting board, rolling pin, and pair of tiny whisks!

  • Cutting boards and rolling pins were accidentally listed as out of stock briefly, they're back!


  • How about shaping homemade pasta dough directly into a ball, then using pulled brisket or something as the meatghetti?

  • It is

  • my grandma sometimes makes Leber Spätzle. Which is basically liver noodles. they are always pretty noodle like and the liver taste isnt overpowering

  • Leaving a comment cause I think that's irony

  • Dab while sneezing for food safety XD

  • *Thank you so much. I love this dumb and mad recipe idea!!!*

  • I already think I have a workaround. Knowing the spagh balls probably should have been more like dumplings, and the meat ghetti being sausage links of some kind.

  • It should be pronounced me-etti and speget- balls

  • Confused italian noises

  • Pulled pork and gnocchi.

  • Pre-chewed cat food 😆😆😆😆

  • That's Irony

  • Be quiet about big bucks or AOC gonna get you.

  • will this be on a botched ??

  • In an alternate universe this video would be about how to make spaghetti and meatballs.

  • Swagballs.

  • Spab galls

  • I dont know what irony is

  • Italians be like:MAMA MIA INTENSIFIES

  • I'm a little late to the party but if you wanna "spiralise" awkward foods try sticking a skewer through the middle and cutting the spiral with a knife, the skewer helps not to cut all the way through!

  • mama mia...

  • This episode was co-written by ysac

  • I would wrap a tomato inside the spag-ball

  • Ok now make borgir.

  • Ew.

  • I’m Italian. I just showed this to my grandma. She died.

  • irony !

  • TBH, us British call it spagball (spagbol) already

  • you don't cut the spag balls open. you grab them And bite em

  • Spag-balls 😂

  • Did you make sure to undercook it too?

  • I'm thinking you should have seared the meat before cutting it.

  • Make the Mondo Butter from Danganronpa

  • Why not cut skirt steak with dumplings.

  • I made my own i put the meatghetti into a patty form and I make my spag balls into a bun form I call it a hamburger

  • That's irony

  • I was a person that lives in next to the Italian border this is sacrilegious. You cannot change the perfection made by the Italians

  • Why not convert the spag balls into pasta chip balls and ground beef is ground beef idk what u can change for that

  • “It tastes like pre-chewed cat food” 😂😂😭 How does one know what cat food taste like especially pre chewed 🤢😂☠️

  • No one talking about how he says ore-gone-o?

  • This is horrible

  • It would be really cool if you did a version of spaghetti tacos they were introduced on the Nickelodeon show Icarly

  • I would eat the spag balls, and not the meatghetti

  • yup

  • I hate this thank you for making it

  • "spag-balls" sounds like a disease

  • @Please. My Wets

  • Ironic

  • Isnt Haley vegetarian?

  • Guys am i high or does it say meat ghetti and spag ball

  • You shouldve just used a play doh press with the meatball mix to make the meat ghetti

  • You shouldve just used a play doh press with the meatball mix to make the meat ghetti

  • balls?

  • The meat-ghetti here looks like cat food

  • That could have kept a small village alive for a year!!!!......

  • All I have to say is *delete this*

  • Sounds like gnocchi and sliced braciole to me.

  • Italians will not like this video for many reasons

  • Yes it is

  • I think it’s irony. Do you find this comment ironic?

  • I thought this was just an edit

  • italians:*loads shotgun*"i just wanna talk with him"

  • Who won

  • You should have made smaller, bite sized pasta balls

  • I almost threw up watching this video bro

  • which episode?

  • That looks disgusting

  • You should make the chocolate cake from matilda

  • Guy has a snoop dogg scale you’d buy at a smoke shop

  • I half expected Babish to make pasta dough and, instead of running it through the pasta roller, just boil the ball of dough 😂

  • Ore gano

  • Should of saved this cursed Italian dish for Halloween

  • I got a babish ad on this vid lol

  • I can do better

  • That was ironic

  • This makes me uncomfortable

  • I feel bad for saying this but this is the only time I wanted to watch you fail

  • I got an ad with Babish in it on this video. We’ve gone full circle

  • Who's got a kitchen big enough for that battleship-size board?! I live in a cupboard!

  • The spagballs need to be made from scratch like dumplings.

  • This should be illegal

  • Where is the cutting board made?

  • That's not irony

  • This is pain

  • Reminds me of Troom Troom

  • What if you baked the spag-balls and pan seared the flattened meat?! Feel like that might help with the texture and flavors

  • This is so cursed

  • I remember in Phineas and Ferb, Linda tried to make a giant Meatball with all of the Pasta ingredients in it. Maybe that could yield better results (but maybe subtract the meatball’s gigantic size)?

  • I know its just reverse spaghetti but this looks foul

  • I really got a ad with this man in it before his own video

  • Babish: *Pronounces Oregano as O-ray-gah-no* Me: *VINDICATION!*

  • Meat-Ghetti looks disgusting

  • I was thinking the spagballs could be like spaghettidough-based stuffed treats? Like, dough mixed with like cheese and tomatosauce and spices, rolled into a ball and boiled? I dunno, I'm not a chef-guy, get off my back!

  • Do moxies drink please! I don’t even know what half the stuff in there is but that would be awesome!

  • Balls

  • this hurts my soul, still love you the Babish.

  • "spag-ball" sounds like a slur

  • 3:30 Yes this is a Breaking Bad episode
