Yes, the spaghetti part was completely unintentional. I started out making a recipe I saw on Pinterest. It was just supposed to be a crock pot casserole type meal. After the allotted cooking time, I opened the crock pot to find a big sloppy mess. Sorry to the pinner whose recipe I tried, but it was more the consistency of soup than anything else. I certainly couldn’t just scoop it onto a plate and serve it.
This was now about a half hour before dinner, nothing else thawed that I could quickly cook so I had to improvise. I figured it was already a big mess…. so I decided to just add some spaghetti noodles to it and see if it sopped up some of the liquid in the “soup.”
It did and although it was touch and go for a bit, “the boys” ate it with gusto!
