eating, making do

spaghetti sliders: a recipe

behold: a plain old spaghetti dinner turned awesome!

i was making spaghetti, like i normally do. you know, brown the meat, boil the noodles, simmer the sauce. i began to boil the whole wheat rotini, then i remembered that for me, the whole wheat pasta just made me too full last time so i contemplated what else i could do for dinner.

AHA! we still had half a bag of whole wheat brown n’ serve rolls that hadn’t been browned yet. JACKPOT! tossed those suckers in the oven and when they were nice and warmed with a slight crisp on the top, i filled them with all the spaghetti fixins and spaghetti sliders were born!


jennie-o brand italian ground turkey: 3% fat/97%lean ( i guess this is how it’s labeled)
whole wheat (enriched) brown and serve rolls
prego garlic and parmesan spaghetti sauce
shredded parmesan

pile the meat into a nice structure.


smother it with sauce.


sprinkle with cheese.


top it off.



i made 3 + a small ceasar salad and was full but not overly stuffed.


if you end up making this…let me know how it turns out!

happy eating!

  1. I’m making spaghetti for dinner tonight. These sound yummy and will try it another night. Way to go on making it all healthy for you both. How do the boys like the spicy sausage though? Sometimes we do eat ours with wheat spaghetti but it’s our favorite food already so I try not to change it to much.

    Thanks for a great yummy idea!!
