Spaghetti Tacos and Cinnamon Sugar Spaghetti Squash

My kids wanted me to make Spaghetti Tacos, which is something they saw on an episode of iCarly (which is one of their favorite T.V. shows). Carly's brother Spencer, who is an eccentric artist and her caretaker, makes spaghetti tacos for dinner one night. My kids really really want me to make this.

There is something about loading carbs onto more carbs that isn't too appealing. But, the things we do for our kids.

12 oz spaghetti noodles - cooked and drained
26 oz spaghetti sauce (your choice)
1 (.7oz ) pkg dry italian seasoning mix
1 lb ground beef browned and drained
crunchy taco shells
parmesan cheese or shredded cheese for topping

Brown ground beef in a pot and drain. While draining, boil spaghetti in the same pot 9-11 minutes or until done. Drain.

Add the beef back into the pot and add Italian seasoning mix and stir into meat well. Add sauce and mix into meat followed by the spaghetti and simmer until warm.

Bake taco shells at 325 degrees for 5-6 minutes or until warm.

Spoon spaghetti mix into the taco shells, top with desired toppings and enjoy :)

This was copied from a website for Nickelodeon's iCarly Spaghetti Taco Recipe. I hope you enjoy your tacos.


We enjoyed these, my kids loved them. This is a good idea to use with your leftover spaghetti. We will most likely make these again. My husband said he had definitely not ever had something like that before. I like to shake things up a little bit :)

I also made another spaghetti squash. This time I used brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. My kids said it was good. My husband said it tasted like carmel cinnamon apple. I thought it was really a nice flavor. I kept thinking it would make a nice alternative to an apple pie filling or to use as a filler with the apple pie filling.
