This one's for Angie . . . yes . . . She who taunted me yesterday with the words . . .
"Holey Socks, woman, you'll have us eating chips out of newspaper soon!"
Spaghetti on Toast is a popular supper dish over here in the UK . . . simple, easy, cheap and something that the children really love, and a mainstay for poor and hungry students living in bedsits.
Oddly enough, even Todd (who hates regular pasta) loves Spaghetti on toast. It is rather wierd I think.
When I was a child my mother would feed us tinned spaghetti occasionally. We always had it with bread and butter and cooked hotdogs. It was a real treat!
I had never heard of ladling it over hot toast before I moved here, and . . . just like everything else . . . I had to put my own twist on it. It can't be plain old toast for me. It has to be grilled toast, with slabs of sliced strong cheddar cheese placed on one side and then grilled until all toasted and bubbling . . .
Then you simply place them onto heated plates and ladle the hot spaghetti over top.
With a good grinding of black pepper on top, it's a fab supper, that yes . . . even I resort to from time to time Angie!
It's a no brainer really . . . hot toasted cheese with hot tinned spaghetti ladled over top.
Don't knock it. It's really very good.
(All in good fun folks. I love, LOVE Angie! She's one of my bestest friends and texting buddies!)
