Just the word “Spaghettios” instantly conjures up fond childhood memories, and now you’ll have a way to enjoy a healthier version at home.
Truth be told, my kids have never had Spaghettios or any Chef Boyardee product. When Twinkies celebrated their 100th anniversary some years back, my kids asked what Twinkies were. I laughed because it shows you how much things change. We just don’t eat a ton of pre-packaged food, so that is largely the reason why they haven’t tried (or heard of) these items, and I cook a lot and just make most things from scratch.
So the fact that this recipe is a riff off of Spaghettios is lost on them, but not on me. I got the recipe from How Sweet Eats and made some minor tweaks. It was super simple to make and came together quickly. It also uses ingredients I already had on hand, which, given we’re still quarantined and I’m limiting my trips outside of our home, is music to my ears and hopefully yours too.
This is a great comfort food, even more so if it reminds you of your childhood. It’s packed with flavor and you’ll be enjoying it in half an hour… dig in!
