We never have any problems getting Emmy to eat spaghetti, or any other pasta for that matter. We found this fun idea for Octopus Spaghetti and thought we'd give it a try.
Split the dry uncooked spaghetti noodles in half. Push the noodles through the meatball. Don't bunch the noodles all together or it will split the meatball or crack it as the noodles will obviously expand as they cook. But, as you can tell from the following picture, it's so easy, a baby could do it ;)
Just like this....
Yes honey, that IS the way it's supposed to look.
Now show how proud you are of yourself!
Now you just throw the noodle meatballs into boiling water and cook until the noodles are done.
Toss in spaghetti sauce and eat up.
Yes baby, I PROMISE, that is what it's supposed to look like. Hehe.
Now giggle like crazy when the noodles tickle your chin when you eat your Octopus Spaghetti.
