I am gluten free, so this was an attempt to satisfy my spaghetti craving. It might not sound good to the average person, but for someone starving for a safe carb, it sounded good to me. If you don't like the thought of eating fried foods, you might consider using baked potatoes and topping those, instead. Just a thought!My family enjoyed it, and I hope yours will, too. ;)
