Today I am sharing recipes along with other blogging friends that are suitable for back to school. For this recipe, it is essentially a DIY spaghetti o’s recipe like the type that children love that come in the can.

And while this one uses a canned soup to flavor it, making it this way gives you a greater amount of control in how much sauce goes on it vs. how much  pasta,  as well as if you want to add your own meat (such as vegetarian crumbles).

I know my daughter liked the canned stuff when she was little and when I came across the anelli pasta I knew I  wanted to work this out. So this is the first edition of it, and later  on, I will work out  how I want the sauce using fresh  tomatoes or normal canned tomato sauce.

But if you like something semi-convenient for now, this is perfect for you.

Join me tomorrow when I share my recipe which is another clone for the Campbell’s type bean and bacon soup.  That one is essentially from scratch  although I used canned beans in it, although cooking your own beans from dried is not really a big deal. For school  it is perfect to put  in a thermos,  and should be one that kids enjoy.

Until tomorrow-

  1. My Little Miss is a pasta fanatic. I have never given her the canned stuff but my kids, like yours, loved it when they were young. I think I will make this for her lunch tomorrow as a special treat. Thanks Sue.

  2. I remember a time when all my daughter would eat was this type of food from a can. Well, she would also eat fish sticks! I love to cook, so this period in her life was a struggle for me. This recipe would have been a favorite for her!
