Spaghettti-O’s? OK, what pure-blooded American kid hasn’t eaten tons of SpaghettiOs over the years. Well some I guess, if they had parents that didn’t like processed foods. Dude was actually too old to have eaten them as a child as Spaghetti-O’s weren’t invented and put on the market til 1965. No Dude discovered then in college when a college buddy of the Dude turned him on the wonderful little invention, round shaped pasta in tomato straight from the can. All you had to do was open the can, dump the Spaghetti-O’s into a pan and heat them up, and “Voila” you had a tasty little meal ready in minutes. Kids just loved them, and they still do. They’re a favorite of Stoners who are known to get serious munchies, which of-course includes our pal, The Dude. Dude has loved these tasty little suckers ever since his first taste. He usually keeps a couple cans on hand for a fast, quick, and easy; lunch, dinner, or late-night munchies attack. However, one day, one of Dudes other buddies showed Dude how to make his own home-made Spaghetti-O’s and with or without “Franks” (Hot Dogs) or Meatballs. Dude just loved the idea and makes himself a big-batch now and then, which once made, Dude can keep in a container in the fridge, to be heated-up at will in just a few minutes time. Great idea.

"Make Your Own Duder Home-Made SPAGHETTI-O'S



1 pound of Anelli Pasta
5 cups of Tomato Sauce, recipe page 117
1 tablespoon Sugar, 2 tablespoons salt
6 Hot Dogs, cut into ½” pieces
Grated Cheese (optional)

1.  Heat tomato sauce with Hot-Dogs and sugar in a small pot over low heat for 7 minutes.

2.  Fill a 6 quart pot with water and 2 tablespoons salt. Bring to the boil.

3.  Add Anelli (round pasta rings) to rapidly boiling water and cook according to directions on package.

4. When the Agnelli (pasta rings) are cooked, drain into colander, reserving a ¼ cup water. Put pasta back into the pot it cooked in. Add Olive Oil and mix. Add the tomato sauce with the Hot Dogs and mix.

5. Serve yourself a bowl of Spaghetti-O’s & Franks and your guests if you have any. Place any leftover Spaghetti-O’s in a container to be easily reheated for another quick and tasty meal in-no-time-flat!

Note: You can make the Spaghetti-O’s without the Hot Dogs for original recipe, or you can add a batch of little DaFino Meatballs

(recipe page 128, make them small) for Spaghetti-O’s & Meatballs. Now that’s just awesome. That’s 3 meals in one.
