Slurp, slurp, nom. Delicious!

A word of caution before we start: though boiled pasta is probably okay to give to most rodents and is, in fact, a treat for many, check with your local pet store or vet first if you’re not sure about whether it’s a good idea to feed your own mice, hamster or guinea pig with Italy’s finest export. That said, pet rodents can be quite fussy and might reject what’s not going to be good for them in any case.
