Whole wheat spaghetti

We have an abudance of it. The kids are getting sick of eating it in all of it's various forms. We've done garlic salt, parmesan cheese, and one of them likes hot sauce over the top, which is just SO weird to me, but anyway. I guess I've never done just buttered noodles, why didn't I think of that? It would be nice to find a protein to throw in once in awhile too. Any other suggestions?

Cheeseburger Mac
Chicken Alfredo (I could eat this everyday lol)
You can always pause from pasta since it keeps forever basically and just go back when you're ready.

Re: Whole wheat spaghetti

We sometimes do stir frys over noodles instead of rice.

Also, you can toss it into chili and have chili mac.

Re: Whole wheat spaghetti

Meat sauce

Brown a lb of ground beef and/or lb of italian sausage links. If using 2lbs of meat, double everything else here.
Cut links into bite sized pieces after cooking. Set the meat aside on a plate.
Fry diced onion, garlic, and mushrooms in the meat fat.
Stir in half small can of tomato paste and stir it around so it caramelizes a little.
Pour in one big can of crushed tomatoes, a 1/2 cup or so of red wine (optional), and dried or fresh basil and oregano. Salt and pepper. If the tomatos were really acidic, maybe a tsp of sugar or honey. Put the meat back in. Cook as long as you can.

Et voila.
