Tucson teacher and competitive eater Michelle Lesco set a world record Monday by eating a large bowl of pasta in just under 27 seconds, the Arizona Republic reports. 

Lesco, who travels the country to compete in eating competitions, including Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, New York, was attempting to break the record as part of Carbs for a Cause, an event to raise awareness for the St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix, the Republic said. 

The dish, served up to Lesco at Oregano’s Pizza Bistro in Scottsdale, included 100 grams of pasta and at least 50 grams of sauce, the Republic said.
