Garlic Toasted Spaghetti Recipe

Sharing a favorite spaghetti recipe today!  This Garlic Toasted Spaghetti is the perfect quick fix weeknight dinner the whole family loves!

Garlic Toasted Spaghetti Boats

Making spaghetti recipes happens on a regular basis around our home.  The kids love it and it’s a simple weeknight dinner idea! I brought some of my favorite flavors and created them into the most adorable little spaghetti boats. These are a great idea if you’ve got leftover spaghetti in the fridge for a new leftover recipe. Either way….everyone loves these!

Thrilled to partner with Old El Paso today to bring you a new fun simple dinner and or appetizer recipe.



Garlic Toasted Spaghetti Boats

Bake little flour tortilla boats until golden and crisp. Like so.  You can also cut flour tortillas into triangles, bake and do the same thing if you can’t find the boats.

    These are so amazing! This is definitely a way to get my kids to eat! Besides, garlic toasted boats… I love that!!

    I am pretty sure my boys would devour these!! It’s still hard for them to twirl pasta so this would be perfect for them!

  3. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness

    This is PURE genius! I love having garlic toast with my spaghetti, but having my spaghetti in toasted boats? YES. Pinning and dying over these!
