Spicy Cheesy Spaghetti!

Hey Neighbors!

I will be sharing more recipes as I have opportunity, and this is a family favorite.  Well, we put a new twist on a family favorite.  For years my grandmother used to make a huge pot of Cheesy Spaghetti for family get togethers.  She taught me how to make it and I am the only one who carried on the tradition.  I have made it quite a bit over the years for my family.

You basically use spaghetti, tomatoes and Velveeta cheese.  The whole family enjoys it.  I think my grandmother originally found it on a package of Velveeta cheese.  Recently we decided to change it and spice it up some.  Here is how the idea came about.  We make a queso dip with ro-tel  tomatoes, so...I started thinking.  My family loves Mexican and several of them like spicy foods, so why not add some ro-tel to the cheesy spaghetti!  It was a hit!  Not only did they have several helpings a piece at dinner, they also had it as a snack later that evening.  It is already on my list for this week!

Here is what you need:
2 lbs of spaghetti, we prefer thin
2-3 cans of diced tomatoes
1-2 cans of ro-tel tomatoes
1 package of Velveeta or an equivalent brand

You start by cooking your spaghetti the way you normally would. We use 2 lbs for 8 of us, and we have enough to heat up for lunch the second day.  If you are feeding less, cut the recipe in half. Once your pasta is cooked, drain it and place back in LARGE pan.  Add enough fresh water to lightly cover the pasta.

Normally we add 3-4 cans of diced tomatoes.  This time we added 2 cans of diced tomatoes and 2 cans of the ro-tel.  You can adjust yours as to how spicy you would like it to be.  Do add the juice from the tomatoes also.

Next place your pan on your stove on medium heat and begin adding sliced up Velveeta cheese.  Slowly melt the the cheese, stirring often.  Be sure to watch your heat as you can burn the mixture to the bottom of the pan and this will ruin the whole meal.  I know because we did this once.  One bite of burned cheesy spaghetti will convince you to be careful the next time.  After I can tell the cheese is melting I lower it to a simmer.

The family LOVED this!  I was seriously amazed that they ALL asked for more and then wanted it for a snack later in the evening!

If you try this recipe leave a comment and let me know what you thought!  Thanks for stopping by today At the Fence!  I look forward to seeing you next time!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
