Okie dokie, so we ate our last can of spaghettio's about a month ago. The kids have been begging me for spaghettio's for lunch for a while now, so I finally decided to try out a homemade spaghettio's recipe I found here: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/08/19/homemade-spaghetti-os/
Here it is below!
Homemade Spaghetti Os
15oz no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 tbsp milk of choice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp to 1 tsp salt, depending on your preference
2-3 tsp butter-type spread (I used real butter)
3-4 tablespoons nutritional yeast or grated Parmesan cheese (I used 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese)
2 tbsp sweetener of choice (I used sugar in the raw)
1 cup uncooked tiny pasta of choice (If using a larger pasta, such as elbows, increase to 2 cups)
a small saucepan, stir together all ingredients except the pasta. Bring
to a boil, then lower and cook on low until the butter spread melts
2. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil.
Once boiling, throw in the pasta and cook until desired texture is
reached. Drain, then pat dry with a towel.
3.Pour the pasta into the
sauce, and stir to combine. Serve.
4. Before reheating any leftovers, stir
and add a little milk if needed.
I used little star noodles that I thought were super cute. And I did not pat dry the noodles with a towel....I just drained them and all was well.
This recipe was a win! It was super easy to make, one of my top cooking criteria, and the kids loved it. So no more canned spaghettio's for us!
