Not Your Typical Psghetti {RECIPE}

Can we be honest for a second?
I'm kinda spoiled.
No, not in all aspects of life.
In fact, I'm referring to one very particular aspect of life:

You see, my g-momma can make spaghetti like no other, and therefore nothing else even comes close.
So, I avoid it.
I don't eat it, and I certainly don't attempt to cook it.

Until now.

You see, I found a recipe on pinterest that is oh my stars good....
and very nontraditional.
And while I'm usually a fan of tradition, this is just too good to resist.

Here's a glimpse of what I'm talking about:

Why yes, as a matter of fact, those are french fried onions you see there.

Here's the low down:

*Brown one pound of hamburger meat, turkey, or sausage-- whichever you prefer.

*Boil 8 oz. of spaghetti noodles (or whatever noodles you so choose). I used wheat noodles, but you can use whatever you little heart desires.

*In a skillet, mix your meat (which you have cooked and drained prior to this part), a large jar of the spaghetti sauce of your choice, and a package of cream cheese cut into small squares ( I used fat free, and it was awe-some). I also added a bit of onion powder, a little Italian spices, and a dash of garlic powder. You can also throw in some real onions or peppers or mushrooms if you like. Cook this until the cream cheese is melted.

*Then in a large Pyrex, mix your noodles with your meat mixture. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Then top with french fried onions and shredded Parmesan cheese and bake for another five.

OH MY WORD it is so stinkin' good.
I kid you not, I will most certainly be making this one again very, very soon.

Here's hoping your Tuesday is off the charts amazing.
