Homemade Spaghettios

I have had an amazing pregnancy thus far. It has been completely different from Bennett's--besides being tired the first trimester, everything has been great. One thing for sure is I have cravings--you could say good ol' comfort food is where its at. Mac and Cheese, Raviolis, mashed potatoes, and the latest? Spaghettios

As easy as it would be to just grab it in the can at Target or while I'm Shipting, I just can't get myself to buy any of the prepackaged stuff when it's so easy to make triple the amount at home and know exactly what's going in it! I couldn't find the exact "spaghettios" pasta, but we always have ditalini in the pantry. If you know where to find the pasta let me know, but you really could use any small shaped pasta!

29 ounce can tomato sauce
3 cups water
1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
pinch of paprika
2 tablespoons of sugar or honey
8 ounces small pasta

1. Bring tomato sauce, water, and milk to a boil. 

2. Add cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and sugar. Stir until all cheese is melted. 

3. Pour the pasta into the sauce and cook for 20 minutes, making sure to stir occasionally to make sure the pasta isn't sticking.
