Spaghetti O's

 I'm not afraid to admit that I like easy quick meals every now and then (especially when my husband has been out of town for 5 days). My mother in law bought me some of these pasta noodles at the store when she was visiting for the holidays and told me I could use them to make home-made spaghetti-Os. If you didn't know already the Spaghetti-Os you buy in the can are packed with dairy, so that's why I had to share this idea! Tastes exactly like the canned stuff (but with way less preservatives and sodium and no milk) If your family eats 2 cans of tomato soup when you make it, then double the recipe using 2 cans and 2 cups noodles- simple as that. Yes, I know I could always make my own tomato soup, but sometimes I just don't have that kind of time. If you want to try making tomato soup from scratch there are a lot of recipes out there like this one that will do the trick...or you can use a can- nobody will judge you I promise! (especially me)

Spaghetti O's
Serves 2 adults or 4 kids

1 cup triple O rings pasta (like the one here)
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 can water or soy milk (I use water)
salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the pasta and cook for about 5 minutes or until mostly cooked. Drain. Put the pasta back into the pot along with the condensed soup and water and bring to a boil over low-medium heat until heated through and the noodles are tender. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy.

Haven't tried this yet, but I have been missing Spaghettio's big time since going vegan. Watching my husband eat it is torture! I found another recipe a while back but it had a lot more ingredients and seemed far more complicated. SO HAPPY to have found your recipe. Now to find the noodles....
