Bento (172) - Spaghetti with Pepper Stars

The morning I made this bento, I woke up exhausted and told Goose he was going to have to take a Lunchable, because mommy was too tired to bento.  He looked at me with wide eyes and said "But, Mommy, I don't have any Lunchables."  (Of course, now I'm wondering if I should admit to occasionally feeding my child Lunchables on a bento blog . . . . but ::shrug:: I guess the damage has been done.  No one is perfect interwebs.  No one.  :P).  Long story short, I was overjoyed to find Olive Garden leftovers in the fridge . . . and for a five minute bento, I must admit this one came out quite nicely.

I used a small shaped veggie cutter to punch out the sweet pepper stars.  Upper right is more pepper stars and a cup of mini-mochi.  Lower right is grape/blueberry salad.  I take no credit for the spaghetti.  Olive Garden makes awesome spaghetti.  Oh!  One nice bento tip . . . lining the container with lettuce leaves nicely protected the white plastic from spaghetti stains. :)
