What are you having for dinner?

I've been craving this spaghetti recipe for like weeks now... so I'm finally making it.

And it's foods like this that are keeping me from losing the weight I want to lose.

We call it Cowboy Spaghetti Bebop XXX... although I grew up calling it just plain ol' Cowboy Spaghetti. Not really at all like the RR version, but I think twice as tasty!

here's how we make it:

1 jar of pre.go (or whatever is your favorite) jarred spaghetti sauce
1-2 cans Nal.ley (or your favorite) chili (we use a vegetarian one)
1lb spaghetti (cooked a little firmer than al dente)
1-2 c shredded cheese (again go with your favorite- we usually use a mix of cheddar and jack or mozzerella)

Cook spaghetti for 8-9 min until it's slightly firmer than al dente. In a box {haha- I meant bowl} mix spaghetti sauce and cans of chili (if you like it a little thicker- use one) and 1/2-1 c of cheese. Once noodles are done, drain and stir into chili mixture. Pour into casserole/ oven safe dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 30-35 min (or until cheese is melted).
Let sit for 5 min and serve.

You can add ground meat to it if you want. We opt out.

So yummy! But so full of calories... see why I have a hard time going completely vegan? It's the cheese!

That sounds super yummy!!

(and I think I'd mix the sauce and chili in a pot instead of a box - hehe)
