Around 500 pounds of cooked pasta was mysteriously found near river basin in a New Jersey town in the United States.

A local politician Nina Jochnowitz — who ran for city council in Old Bridge — shared photos to Facebook showing the mounds of cooked pasta dumped near the river.

In the footage, an estimated 500 pounds of cooked spaghetti, elbow macaroni and ziti can be seen dumped in mounds across a 25-foot area, United Press International (UPI) reported.

Jochnowitz said she reached out to the town administrator and the Old Bridge Department of Public Works. She said public works employees hauled the noodles away two days later.

However, the origin of misplaced macaroni remains a mystery.
