I can see myself now, walking in the kitchen pass the deliciousness and having a salad.

Then off to the gym.

Spaghetti tacos?! I have never heard of such a thing, and my nose is involuntarily scrunching up just imagining them. How many calories are in one?

They're delicious!

And however many calories are in a taco shell and my mom's baked spaghetti! Lol

it's from the iCarly show, right?

(or that's what made them popular). They are now a regular menu item at the elementary school here.

Um, how do I put Oprah in my posts?! Those are hilarious!

Back on topic... focus on that vision of walking right past and NOT having one. Think through why skipping out on that in favor of a more calorie-friendly option is worth it in the long run. You can do it!

Lol, yes! My little brother has them at school and begged my mom to start making them.

You can get .gif images from photobucket, tumblr and other sites lol! I use them to get my emotions across. And you just use the regular image code.

Thanks for the advice!

You could take a bite and then see if you even want the whole thing. Maybe the IDEA of having one is better than actually having one.

Great gifs!

Just have one, and don't overload it. It can't be that bad with a moderate size.

God this sounds awesome in a crazy, pop-culture, street food, kind of way. I am a carb-addict, and it's the savory sweet or carby dishes that are my weakness, not desserts or sweets. The thought of combining crispy taco shell, creamy pasta, taco toppings, and a tangy, zesty (maybe spicy) pasta sauce, Oh jeez I would not be safe around this.

Great idea JessLess! Sometime if I can't resist the temptation I will just have a small bite or 2 of whatever I'm craving to make it subside. Works really well for me!

I laughed at the spaghetti tacos LOL. My daughter is a huge Icarley fan and she has been asking me to make them. I honestly thought it was a joke on the show and no one actually ate them. That is too funny ;)

We make them for the kids sometimes, my son talked us into it right after that episode first aired. They are actually good. I just do not think that a taco shell is worth it anymore, so I do not eat them. When we make spaghetti I use whole wheat, and I usually only eat 1/2 a serving then I load up on vegis.

I only had one. It was great.

And she ended up using rotini instead of regular spaghetti noodles and it only took me two fork full to fill the shell. Thinking of it as eating two bites of rotoni and a taco shell makes me feel better.

It was meant as a joke. They apparently became popular as a result of the show (or so I read, when I googled it).

I believe there was a "healthy" version of this taco from Hungrygirl.com. Go to the site and put in spaghetti taco and see!
I just can't imagine what they taste like.

Here's the hungy girl version. You can use the Shirataki noodles for yourself and regular noodles for the kids. Also make sure you BOIL them for at least 5 mins, run them under HOT water for another 5 and saute them in a non-stick pan or those babies are kinda nasty!

I guess you could also use ground turkey for a few more calories, but I like the soy crumbles and my kids cant tell the difference.
