I Have Crazy Children.

I do, I have crazy Sprout children. Of course I love them to death in spite (or because) of their craziness, but they keep me on my toes never knowing what to expect next.

I present the following evidence.
My Middle Sprout's latest and most favorite Panini Sandwich invention:

The Grilled Spaghetti-Garlic-Bread-Sandwich

(I told her I was going to blog about it and she didn't believe me. It's really pretty good, and if nothing else, it's a rather original use for leftovers.)

Should you choose to try this, here's what you do:

  • 2 slices hearty French or Sourdough bread
  • 2 tsp vegan margarine
  • 1 clove pressed garlic
  • 1/2 cup cooked spaghetti or angel hair, chopped up - aprox 1 inch pcs.
  • 1 Tbsp. sauce
  • 1 Tbsp olives, chopped
  • 1-2 slices "meltable" vegan cheese slices

Mix pressed garlic with margarine. Spread thinly on bread.
Mix sauce into spaghetti. Stir in olives.
Crumble the cheese and mush it around into the spaghetti.
Lay 1 slice bread on heated Panini Grill, buttered side down.
Heap spaghetti mixture onto bread and spread evenly to edges.
Lay remaining bread slice on top, buttered side up.

Grill until sandwich is toasty and cheese is melty.
Dip in additional sauce if you want. YUMMMMMM

Have a great week.

I thought I was the only one that ate spaghetti sandwiches =). It's good with lots of sauce and vegenaise. It actually looks good with the grill marks.

My family would love this. My husband and son already eat spaghetti sandwiches anyway, but to add cheese and grill it would just take it to a whole new level.

I don't really like spaghetti, but I've never met a grilled/fried sandwich that I could resist. I might just have to give this a try!

that looks like something I would have eaten when i was your Sprouts ages.

That's a great idea! It's like eating spaghetti with garlic bread but all in one cute package.

What a wonderful idea! What kind of panini maker do you have? I am looking to get one.
