The Unexpected Ingredient That Will Majorly Upgrade Spaghetti


Pasta and sauce are the two main components you typically picture when you think about spaghetti.

Spaghetti is a dish that is surprisingly simple to create and inexpensive to produce because it just needs basic store-bought components.

Make no mistake, the spaghetti you ate as a child was a perfectly excellent meal. It was probably just cooked pasta with sauce thrown on top. 

But what if you wanted to experiment with the traditional spaghetti recipe? What might you possibly do to alter something so lovable and straightforward?

You might experiment with cooking your spaghetti in different methods, such as in the oven or a slow cooker. You might prepare your own sauce by using any chosen technique or an online recipe, such as Frank's Italian Sauce (via Food Network).

You can rely on an additional ingredient to help give your dish a little more flavour if you're unable, for whatever reason, to cook your own homemade noodles or spaghetti. 

Why Add Taco Seasoning To Spaghetti?

Okay, so you probably don't picture tacos, burritos, or any other Southwestern or Tex-Mex food when you think of Italian foods. 

But according to Gourmandize, flavouring your spaghetti with taco spice gives it a much richer and somewhat zestier flavour. 

Similar thinking may be seen in Damaris Phillips' recipe, which focuses more on taco-flavored meatballs. Using a recipe from Food Network, she requests your meatballs.
