Pasta-gate of 2023? Hundreds of pounds of pasta mysteriously found in New Jersey woods

Piles of pasta were mysteriously dumped in Old Bridge, New Jersey recently.

Nearly 500 pounds of cooked pasta, or 15 wheelbarrow loads, were found near the river basin, Nina Jochnowitz tells CBS News. She says people usually dump furniture, bed frames, or construction materials, not macaroni or spaghetti. She says, “There was literally 25 feet of pasta that had been dumped.”

The town had multiple questions as to how the pasta got there and why someone would do it. They asked if it was a caterer who had a last-minute wedding cancellation, a restaurant that was cooking for a football team that never showed up.

Local Facebook group Administrator, Denise Bloom said it is all people in the town can talk about and that they are calling it the Great Pasta-gate of 2023, according to New York Times.
