So, life has been spaghetti o's free for a few months, and I just couldn't take it anymore. My little boy is one of the pickiest eaters ever, and spaghetti o's are one of the only things he will actually ask for.
Do you know how easy it is to duplicate spaghetti o's? Ridiculously easy! All you need is some tiny shaped pasta, tomato sauce, a little salt, and Italian seasoning.
I like to slightly undercook the pasta, so that when I add the tomato sauce and spices, they have a little time to really get infused and the pasta can absorb some of the sauce.
Homemade spaghetti o's may not be as fast and easy as opening up and heating a can, but its pretty close. As you can see, I didn't use actual "O's." Instead I used alphabet shaped pasta. My little guy is learning to read and write his ABC's, so I like to use every opportunity to help that along.
I'm so happy to have one of our favorite foods back in the afternoon rotation. And really, what's better than homemade?
