Almost homemade spaghetti Os...

The kids like spaghetti Os but we don't have them very often. I try to get the organic kind but I just don't like anything so acetic out of a can. (Yes, I am a little concerned about BPA in canned goods.) So my solution was to make some myself. I didn't have the time or energy to make it from scratch so this is what I tried. I started with half a box of ditalini pasta. It was as close as I could come to little pasta Os. I boiled them a little to soften them, drained them, and poured them into the crock pot. I added half of the organic creamy tomato soup and a jar of organic tomato paste. The kids like hotdogs in their Os so I added 4 cut up good quality beef hotdogs. I let them simmer for about an hour and a half to finish cooking the pasta. I ended up adding all of the soup to the mix. It was so yummy. So much better than out of a can. With a grilled cheese sandwich on the side it made for a great easy dinner.


  1. This looks utterly delish! I think we're going to try this out, but with vegetarian dogs. Thanks!

  2. I do believe it is my kids' new favorite and so easy!!!
