Trying Something Other Than Pasta Sauce On Spaghetti

It’s no secret that pasta is one of the most dependable carbs for filling out a meal. It’s also no secret that dip is something that no self-respecting chip should be without. So, why not unite them? Before you think the idea is disgusting, just remember that adding a heap of creamy cheese dip to a pot of elbow macaroni creates one of America’s most favorite dishes: macaroni and cheese. Now you can blend that leftover pico de gallo and toss it with some hot linguine and shredded Parmesan and you’ve got another alternative to ordinary pasta. Other chip dips like garlic Parmesan dip, spinach dip and French onion dip have a backbone of mayonnaise, cream cheese, or sour cream. All of these ingredients distribute well with heat, provide flavor, and have the ability to impart a luxurious coating. If you have leftover sausage or bacon, chop it up and toss it in, and you’ll have an easy dinner in no time.
