Mini Monster Mouth

Mini Monster MouthMini Monster Mouths are my kids favorite recipes.  My oldest daughter refused to eat spaghetti for the longest time, funny thing is she would eat all the elements that made up spaghetti separately (meat, sauce, cheese, and pasta) but not together.  I found this recipe in a book I bought years ago, Simple 1-2-3 Cooking For Kids, and put my own spin on the recipe to hide the fact it had so much tomato sauce.  The funny thing is she says she hates cheese now, but LOVES this recipe and also.
