We’re in the DelmarvaLife kitchen with Chef Sharliena Berry-Jenkins of Karmic Creations Catering to make her famous Tik Tok Spaghetti Bread Bowl.
For the spaghetti with meat sauce:
1/2 lb ground beef (cooked)
1/2 lb ground Italian sausage (cooked)
1 can 15 oz no salt added pasta sauce
1/2 can no salt added diced tomatoes
1 tsp olive oil
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 tsp sugar
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 lb cooked pasta
For the bowls:
1 8 oz cream cheese (any savory flavor)
2 cups of mozerella cheese
1 sliced round baker’s loaf
examples (sourdough, hearty bulk Tuscan,
french bread, etc.) make sure it is large enough to sanctify and fill with pasta.
Cook and drain pasta according to package. Put aside.
Add sauce and diced tomatoes to a medium to large saucepan. Add seasonings, sugar and olive oil. Cook the ground beef and sausage, strain the oil and add to the sauce. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Then cut and remove the center of the bread. Dig enough to make room for the pasta. Drizzle the bread with a little olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and a pinch of salt.
Toast the bread for 3-5 minutes on 375.
Then spread the cream cheese inside the bread, then sprinkle mozerella cheese over the cream cheese.
Then add your spaghetti to the bread.
Top with more cream cheese and mozerella cheese. Put it in the oven and let the cheese melt. Once the cheese has melted, remove the bread bowl from the oven and top with Parmesan.
