Spaghetti Tacos

If you're looking for a gourmet meal you might as well move your mouse to the top right hand corner and click the x. But, if you're looking for a fun, easy recipe your kids will gobble up, you're in the right place! You will be on the top of your kids favorite people list, especially if they're a fan of the Nickelodeon show iCarly (which my girls happen to love). Spaghetti Tacos are the main character Carly's favorite meal... and they were surprising good. Miss Picky Pants Makayla even chowed down on these tasty tacos. Thank you Carrie from Carrie's Cooking and Recipes for the idea! Give them a try... you kids will be thanking you :)

SPAGHETTI TACOS
Spaghetti Noodles (cooked)
Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb ground beef (optional)
taco shells

Brown and drain ground beef. Add spaghetti sauce and heat until warm. Add noodles and fill taco shells with spaghetti mixture.

My kiddos enjoy that show, too.

This is a fun recipe unfortunately my kids really dig gourmet and turn up their noses at kid "friendly" foods! I know they're weird and want veggies and fruits!

We used to make spaghetti sandwiches on white bread when we were kids. :)

I bet my son would get such a kick out of this idea!!! I was actually toying with the idea of making spaghetti this week, so I may have to surprise him and serve his in a taco shell :)

Heidi, my daughter is obsessed with iCarly. She watches it day and night. It is so annoying because it is the same ones day after day. We even got the icarly backpack...she would get a kick out of these...

Spryte said...

But I'm not telling what's for dinner first! It will be a surprise!

This would be great for left over Spaghetti.

My husband made these for the kids and they loved them! I had one after I came home from work and I must admit that they are actually tasty!

Mary said...

LOL you are too funny!

I have never done this on a taco, but when I was younger like Annie up there, I used to pile leftover spaghetti into a slice of white bread, fold it over and eat it. Sort of the same concept. I have no idea where I got that from

What a unique idea! My daughter has just started watching iCarly, so we didn't know that was her favorite food. Now we'll have to try it for sure!

Mighty M said...

Spaghetti is one of my all-time favorite meals. Taco's is up there too - WHO KNEW you could combine them? :-) I look forward to trying this one out!

Willoughby said...

My daughter loves iCarly, too! When I told her I saw your recipe for spaghetti tacos she asked "Are you going to make them tonight?" lol

Carrie said...

Heidi, I am so glad you made these for your kids!! Weren't these just kooky and fun?!

My boys LOVE iCarly, I think they've seen every episode! The tacos weren't bad actually, I was surprised! My mother-in-law tried them with flour tortillas but didn't like them (imagine spaghetti burritos), yuck!

Krista said...

Good idea! I have an iCarly fan in this house too! I bet she'd totally love this.

Stopping by from SITS. Hmmm....I wonder if my 8 year old (picky eater extraordinaire) would try these. She loves spaghetti & iCarly. Perhaps a good intro to tacos. I'm going to try it.

P.S. I'm enjoying your music. "At Last" by Etta James was my last dance at my wedding, and was playing in the hospital nursery when my first child was born.
