Spaghetti tacos? Of course! It doesn’t get much more kid friendly than that! When I was a child, “kid friendly” meant a smaller portion of what Mom & Dad were having. Not today though. There seems to be an entire sub culture of recipes geared at just the young (not usually just the young at heart).
Just because they are young, doesn’t mean they can’t eat healthy. Spaghetti tacos at our house feature whole wheat spaghetti, ground corn taco shells, and fresh tomato sauce. And cheese of course. Lots of cheese. Watch for a new Kid Friendly recipe every Wacky Wednesday. Same bat channel, same bat time. Or something like that.
OAE (Oh, and enjoy)
- 2 2/3 cups frozen mashed potatoes
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1/2 (8-ounce) container soft cream cheese
- 3 green onions, sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 flat-bottomed ice cream cones (optional)
Prepare potatoes with milk according to package directions, stirring with a wire whisk. Stir in cream cheese, green onions, salt, and pepper. Let stand 5 minutes or until cool enough to mound. To serve, spoon mashed potatoes into ice cream cones, if you’d like.
