Spaghetti Taco Craze Courtesy of Nickelodeon Show
You've heard of -- and maybe even eaten -- a spaghetti sandwich. But spaghetti tacos? That's crazy talk, hombre.
But people are actually eating the unlikely combination thanks to a Nickelodeon kids' show called iCarly .
During an episode of the live action show that originally aired in November 2007, one of the central characters whips up the strange concoction
for dinner. The simple idea spawned all kinds of imitators. Children
all over the country began to ask their parents to make them spaghetti
tacos just like iCarly. And parents obliged.
Now there are blogs, Facebook pages, and entire websites are devoted to the popcentric dish. They sport recipes, show videos of people eating them, and have even spawned a kicked-up version featuring guacamole.
searched through a bunch of spaghetti taco pictures and have collected
the ones that look the best, as well as some similarly weird dishes.
This is a classic spaghetti taco with sauce mixed in with the pasta. It doesn't get simpler than this.
It's no spaghetti taco, but a corndog and pizza quesadilla is just as weird. (Or is it weirder?)
