Movie nights are an at home affair these days and typically include homemade pizza and/or popcorn. Sometimes though, I like to do something different. With the upcoming release of the Minions movie from Illumination Entertainment on DVD, I decided to play around in the kitchen a little and give one of our standard dinner recipes a “minion” twist.

I found all the ingredients I didn’t already have on hand for this meal in the grocery section at Target during my weekly shopping trip. The spaghetti and mozzarella were where I expected (pasta and cold food aisles, respectively), but the parmesan cheese was “hiding” with the pizza ingredients.

      I'm looking forward to the DVD release too! We haven't seen the movie yet. Hard to get to the theater these days. Hope you enjoy the spaghetti!

    I would never have thought to make faces in bread like that - SUCH a cool idea. I love how easy this is and so creative, too. Now to surprise my kids... #client

      It was incredibly easy and my 6 year old thought it was the coolest dinner. Especially since I'm not one to typically "dress up" our food. Hope your kids enjoy the surprise too!
