So, you’re probably gonna think I’m a bit strange.
I got a wild hair and decided to top creamy, cheesy, chickeny spaghetti with a big fat layer of salty pretzel. I don’t know why I did it; I was just in one of those moods to be all experimental.
Sometimes these moods work, sometimes not so much. But this time the crazy, silly idea really, really worked. It’s like the perfect comfort food for a cold ass night (like tonight is gonna be). It eliminates the need for garlic bread, etc. It’s all wrapped up into one pretty little hot dish.
I love this particular pretzel dough recipe; I’ve used it for so many things like this, this and this. Make a batch, which is really easy to whip up, and keep it in your fridge. You’ll love me for it.
I used Muenster cheese, because I think it’s amazing, and it melts so good. Pepper Jack cheese would be good, I’m sure, or Mozzarella, or you could just skip it all together if you’re not a big melty-cheesy fan. I really don’t think those people exist, though. I mean, they can’t for real.
In case you’re wondering, I prefer vermicelli over spaghetti noodles because spaghetti grosses me the hell out. They’re too round and fat and remind me of worms; they’re just so in your face and obtrusive. I’m sorry; please get that out of your mind now and let’s just focus on vermicelli. It’s the daintier, less aggressive version of spaghetti noodles. I can’t explain myself and all my quirky ways.
