Spaghetti, a long, thin, cylindrical, solid pasta, is thought to have first been made in Sicily, Italy. Like other pasta types, spaghetti is made of milled wheat and water. Traditional Italian spaghetti is made from durum wheat semolina, but elsewhere it may be made with other kinds of flour. Whatever spaghetti you choose to use, I’m sure your children will love this recipe as much as mine do.
[yumprint-recipe id=’8′] This dish is called silly spaghetti, I guess due to the fact that you place the ingredients into a casserole dish and bake it, finally serving cut into squares rather than as the traditional pile on your plate. Because you are baking the spaghetti after it has been boiled, it makes this dish perfect for using up any leftover spaghetti you may have. Simply skip the boiling part of the recipe and mix the ingredients together ready for the oven.
I like this served with garlic bread or a crispy green salad! Delicious for even the “big kids”
