I saw this and knew at once I had to try it. I loved Spaghettios and Chef Boyardee as a kid and even into adulthood. I only stopped eating them when I had to watch my sodium. So when I saw this recipe for Homemade Spaghettios I had to give it a go.
Ingredients for sauce.
Sauteing veggies. This was one of the reasons I wanted to try this recipe. I was intrigued by the use of veggies in the sauce.
Cute pasta! Wish I could have found the real rings.
Everything simmering together before blending.
Finished product. Outcome? Not Spaghettios. Tasty? Yes. I added some diced chicken instead of the meatballs in the recipe. Will I make again? Probably not. As I thought about the memory of the taste of Spaghettios, I remember the sauce pretty much tasted like Campbell's tomato soup. I would like to test the theory, but as I said, I have to avoid the sodium so I might try it down the road one day.
Don't let my opinion keep you from trying this. It would be a great meal for kids I think with the fun pasta and sneaking some veggies in with the sauce. And making the meatballs in the original recipe would make them fun too!
