Sometimes a good ol’ standby recipe just needs a facelift to make it amazing again. That’s what this recipe does to spaghetti. Years ago, spaghetti was a weekly occurrence at our dinner table. It was easy, cheap and pretty much everybody liked it- until I served it so much everyone got sick of it. And then our kids started sports and the spaghetti feeds began.
They begged me to stop making spaghetti. That’s where this sneaky recipes comes into play. It’s spaghetti, but it isn’t. They love it. I love it. Everyone wins!
