Spagetti Spiders

That's what my girls called them anyway. I'm sure you've seen some version of this on the web somewhere, I know I have. I've seen it on facebook, other blogs, and probably pinterest too. I decided to give it a try because lets face it, we could always use a fun kiddo friendly meal on those days that the kitchen is less then appealing.

These were super simple to put together. I used:

Fettuccine noodles
Ball Park all beef franks

I took the hot dogs and cut off the ends then cut the hot dog in thirds.

I took 4 fettuccine and stuck it through each piece of hot dog (think spider or octopus)
 - I made a couple of 'baby' ones because my youngest is obsessed with baby everything.

Once it cooks it looks like this. Sorry for the crappy picture.

We served ours tossed with a little bit of butter then parmesean and shredded cheese.
Since we were going for kid friendly, we paired it with cottage cheese and watermelon.

The girls ate them with their fingers and I let them.....just this once. ;)

  1. You have convinced me to give this a try. It looks like a fun meal. This might make meal time more appealing for my little one. Thanks for sharing.
