Chefs recreate processed foods and apparently use it for a new dish as well. They're making SpaghettiO's tonight!

      I was a bit let down because I hoped they would have to make fresh pasta O's, and that didn't happen. But if I could learn to replicate that sweet, tangy sauce using nonindustrial ingredients, why not?

      Even better, the Chef Boy R Dee red sauce.

    2. I think the oddest part of this show is that one of the most hyped prizes is a year's worth of xyz. How many hand held cherry pies does someone really need/want in a year??

      1. Hahaha! I found this show entertaining in all its low-budget, third-string, B-list glory. Joey Fat-one as a host? Judges providing exaggerated praise and critique. Contestants turning real food into crap then turning said crap back into food again! And for all the rushing, chopping, sauteing, and describing their craptacular creations, the winner is bestowed a year's supply of Spaghetti-O's!

        It's like the producers sat around a table and tried to come up with the worst show they can possibly make. "I know...let's have a washed up ex-boy band member be the host!" "Yeah, and all they'll win is a year's supply of Twinkies!" "Let's do it! I bet Food Network will still air it!"
