        Looks far, far too mushy. I’d eat cornbread with spaghetti, but I don’t think there’s a way to bake a dish with both in them and have both turn out palatably, texture wise. Probably neither.

        Properly cooked cornbread with a salty, meaty savory dish with some fat to it is great though. Just can’t be raw.

        Do it up with some BBQ sauce instead of marinara and add smoked pulled pork or beef? Hells to the yeah!!

    If I had a nickel for every time I was eating cornbread and thought, “I sure wish this cornbread were noodly…”

    I don’t think it’s gross - not like some of the horrible taste combinations I see here - but I’ve never been big on the bread/pasta combinations that pop up. One I’ve seen a lot is a mac and cheese sandwich. It’s just too much starchy stuff in one bite.

    On the other hand, I love scooping some really saucy spaghetti onto my garlic bread, and this isn’t super far from that. It doesn’t sound great, but not revolting either.

        True, but for most of them, combining starch with starch just seems like overkill, not enhancement. I love mashed potatoes and I love rice, but never really want to combine them. Same with pastas and breads.

        Maybe exceptions in moderation with enough other things. Like I’ve made Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches that have turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and gravy on sliced bread. But the potatoes and stuffing are more like a condiment, with a lot more turkey and a good amount of gravy. And even then, they’re not something I’d want regularly, and the bread is more of a convenience to hold it together.
