Alright, so I confess, this is not some sort of pine apple filled spaghetti bake recipe :) – however, I have found the Kings Hawaiian dinner rolls, have much more use, than just great tasting rolls.
I created a weird spaghetti bake recipe, using the rolls as a breading!
My husband is the type that likes day old spaghetti. He has told me that the noodles soak up all the sauce goodness after sitting for a night, so I figured baking the spaghetti, would help quicken this affect :)
Heres what I did.
1 lb Ground Turkey Meat (Ground beef works if you prefer it)
A favorite Jar of Pasta Sauce
(I just grabbed a glass jar of traditional sauce from the store. Sometimes I like to make my sauce from scratch but most days don’t have the time. So jar it is.)
Half Box of Whole Grain Spaghetti Noodles (cooked)
Raw Salt (normal salt will do)
1 Tbs. Butter
Brown your Turkey meat in a larger pot. Once browned, add in your Pasta sauce. Cover & Simmer.
While your sauce/meat is simmering, go ahead and cook up your noodles.
Once noodles are cooked, drained the water and set aside.
Go ahead and check on sauce, stir a few times, then cover and continue to let simmer.
You can also pre-heat your oven to 400F at this point.
Now grab up 4-6 Kings Hawaiian dinner rolls (uncooked – straight from the package) – Break them up into pieces using your hands, and place into blender. Once in blender, pour these ingredients over top of them:
- 2 TSP Italian Seasoning
- 1/2 TSP Salt
- 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
Once that is in the blender on top of bread, blend it until bread becomes bread crumbs.
Now go grab your noodles and pour them into your sauce mixture. If your pot was large enough you could just pour them straight into the same pot :) – If it wont fit, just go ahead and pour your noodles into a 9×13 baking dish and then pour sauce over top of the noodles. Mix it together well, so that noodles are completely covered in sauce/meat mixture.
Once well mixed and in a 9×13 baking dish, sprinkle your bread crumbs over top.
Bake COVERED with Foil for 20 minutes – after 20 minutes, remove foil – and cook for an additional 10 minutes (or until bread crumbs brown).
Let it cool for 5 minutes, serve up with a side salad and with your left over Kings Hawaiian sweet rolls, you can get some butter, toast those up and sprinkle a bit of garlic on them and you are good to go.
All 3 of my kids chowed this down. So meal successful :)
