A Facebook user has been mocked for her unique take on spaghetti bolognese.
Gwen W uploaded her version of the classic Italian dish to the Rate My Plate group on the social media site after the pasta had been dyed a bright blue colour.
Some of the verdicts were brutal, with one poster suggesting that it "looks like Shrek's dinner".
Another user added: "Every once in a while, a creative person takes a chance to create something beautiful and shares it with the world. This is not one of those times."
A third verdict read: "If COVID-19 was a meal."
However, one comment did provide a more sympathetic assessment of Gwen's efforts.
It said: "Love it my nephew used to always have his pasta coloured, only way he would eat it."
