Spaghetti Taco's - Inspired by Nickelodeon's ICARLY

For those of you with kid's this post is going to make perfect sense. For everyone else the whole concept is going to be a little out there, but keep an open mind, it's a fun and tasty meal.

So, one of my kid's favorite shows is Nickelodeon's ICARLY. One day, my oldest asked me - "Daddy can you make Spaghetti Taco's like on ICARLY?" So I made Spaghetti Taco and here is my recipe.

1 box of thin spaghetti noddles
1 - can of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 - 8oz package of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb of ground beef
12 - 8" tortilla shells (I Like Mi Mama's)
1 Tablespoon of parsley


First fry the ground beef, finely chopping it as you go

Then heat your sauce on the stove top

Then prepare your spaghetti per the instructions on the package.

Put your noodles in a large mixing bowl and then take only 1 cup of spaghetti sauce and pour over your noodles. Then toss the spaghetti in the sauce. The idea here is to lightly coat the noodles. Then add a cup of ground beef to the spaghetti and toss again.

Take your tortilla's and fry lightly in pan in corn oil 350 degrees

Now fill your shells with your spaghetti mixture and top with cheese, and garnish with Parsley! You can also garnish with lettuce, tomatoes and black olives.

This is a really fun meal for the kids, and they taste good, believe it our not the do taste good.

By the way we tried hard corn shells - they were good too, we also tried not frying the tortillas but the made for a kind of a bland, mushing taco.

If your make them and try something different - let us know!
