Spaghetti Filled Bread Bowls



I have taken my kids to restaurants where they serve soup in a bread bowl. I figured out a way to make them at home where my kids can enjoy them with their favorite dinner. These are so exciting to them. They eat every bit. We fill the bread bowl with spaghetti. I even hide a different surprise inside each bread bowl. The suspense is crazy waiting to see their reaction when they get to the bottom of the bread bowl to see what their surprise is. Some times it might be a meatball, a fresh mozzarella ball or even a piece of chocolate.
