You weren't supposed to tell us what it was in the title! We were supposed to guess. :(

Now I have to guess something silly like a noodle or something.

spiral pasta? I like the composition.

Clearly that's pasta. One thing that's fun is to not have your screen maximized and scroll up and down slowly while looking at this photo. Maybe that's just me, heh.

The lighting is a little flat, but for some reason it works. I like the little specks within the pasta too.
