OMG! OMG! This was definitely one of the throwback meals I have been anxious to recreate. See…my Sister loved, loved, loved Spaghetti O’s Pasta growing up…I swear she would eat them on a daily basis…I still think she has a few cans in her pantry now…I’ll be sure to check the next time I visit. Talk about simple…you can make this in about 10 minutes…your kids are going to love them…what a great idea for a meal, snack or even put some in a thermos for their lunch! I hope this recipe also brings back great childhood memories for you too!

Probably the most difficult part of this recipe, is locating the pasta rings. You will probably not find them readily available in the grocery store…click here to purchase the ones I used or you can substitute with alphabets, ditalini or any smaller pasta…however…using the rings really makes this recipe authentic! Love throwback recipes as much as I do? Click here!

Boil water for the pasta…do NOT forget to salt. As soon as you drop the pasta…start the sauce. In a saucepan, on medium heat, add in the tomato sauce, paste, cream, and garlic powder.

Whisk until combined and heated. Slowly…and I mean very, very, slowly, whisk in the Parmesan cheese. If you dump the cheese in all at once, it will clump up…you do NOT want this…just keep whisking, adding, whisking, etc. Once all of the cheese is incorporated, whisk in the pasta water…just take directly from the pot. Check to make sure the pasta is fully cooked…add the pasta to the sauce with a slotted spoon directly from the pot…it is ok and quite beneficial to the sauce that a bit more of the pasta water is incorporated. Coat the pasta with the sauce and serve! ENJOY these homemade Spaghetti O’s Pasta, more so now, than you did as a child!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
