Some parents look for sneaky ways to put vegetables in food to trick their kids into eating them. I, on the other hand, look for sneaky retro recipes that resemble modern ones to trick my kids into eating them. So when I ran across this, which just looks like plain old spaghetti but actually has tuna fish and corn mixed in, how could I possibly not make it?
