Pizzeria offers 'pasta straws.' Matt O'Donnell reports during Action News Mornings on July 16, 2018.

More and more companies have, or are considering, banning plastic straws to reduce plastic waste.

A pizzeria in Wisconsin already has an interesting alternative.

Frank's Pizza Palace in Appleton has been offering uncooked pasta straws for the past 30 years.

Owner Jeannie Pierri-Brice says the long ziti is ordered from Bari, Italy.

Pierri-Brice says many children end up eating the straws before their pizza arrives.
