Look, I get it. It's important to stay healthy. So I get why there are so many recipes for spaghetti squash or spaghetti zucchini floating around. But I'll be honest: I'll always stick to real spaghetti.
I once tried the wheat spaghetti and nearly gagged. What is UP with that aftertaste? The only reason why I tried the wheat is because blogs and news programs were pressuring me into it. "Keep your family healthy! Switch to WHEAT spaghetti. You'll be surprised how similar it tastes to the other!"
I was surprised all right. Surprised by the rancid taste. Even my kids were stunned. I tried to make it seem like it wasn't so bad, because if they liked it, I could make THEM wheat spaghetti and I could have the original. But Natalie took a bite and was like, "What is that taste in my mouth? It tastes like old paper bags."
Tommy was all, "Why are these noodles brown like poo?"
My husband took one bite and calmly pushed his bowl away.
So no. Wheat spaghetti is NOT for my family. Then I noticed spaghetti squash, and I thought, "Should I?" but then I was like, "No," when I remembered the wheat spaghetti debacle. Plus there's no way I'd take the time and make spirals out of squash. I know my limits.
Nothing beats a bowl of real spaghetti. And I know technically it's not really real, because I didn't make the noodles myself, but who has time for that? I don't.
It tastes even better with parmesan cheese on top. And then stick some garlic bread on the side.
Carbs, carbs, carbs. I love you.
Do YOU still eat real spaghetti?
