Have you presented different-looking spaghetti with your kids?  Cooking shouldn’t be limited as an obligatory ‘mommy’ task.  If you love food as much as we do, take time to present it decoratively even if you are not a certified A-class chef.  Start with this simple but attractive recipe called, spaghetti jellyfish.

How to Make Spaghetti Jellyfish



  • 8 oz. of linguini pasta
  • Jumbo hotdogs, cheese dogs or chicken dogs
  • Already cooked spaghetti sauce
  • shredded cheese



  1. Cut or break pasta into half of its size.
  2. Cut the hotdogs (or cheese dogs or chicken dogs) into six equal pieces or you can give the jellyfish a taller look so you can make at least four equal pieces.
  3. Insert 5-7 linguini strands into each dog piece but don’t let it go through the other end. Think that it must look like a jellyfish—head and tentacles.
  4. Boil them according to the instruction at the package or the pasta or simply go al dente.
  5. Drain the water and let the dog and pasta stand until drained completely.
  6. Pour your spaghetti sauce and garnish with shredded cheese.
  7. Serve in an attractive dish or plate and enjoy with your kids.



  • The dogs are cooked easily so don’t cut the dogs in smaller pieces.
  • Al dente is best for your pasta as the time consumed is lesser and the ‘tentacle effect’ won’t get too mushy.
  • Adjust your spaghetti sauce into sweeter side to cater to the kids’ taste.
