White Spaghetti Recipe

 Spaghetti is a favorite dish at our house. We probably eat it two or three times a month, and that’s not counting leftovers! Usually, we make it with tomato sauce and meatballs. Sometimes I try a different approach. This week I made what I’m calling White Spaghetti. It tasted good enough, that the husband went back for a second helping. How did I come up with the inspiration for this recipe? Easy, I looked in the cupboard to see what ingredients I had that could be blended into a meal. I’ve found this can be quite challenging at times. Especially when the cupboards are looking like Old Mother Hubbard’s. That is why I try to keep on hand some staples, such as pasta, canned soup and frozen vegetables. You never know when we’re going to have a good old fashioned snow storm!   PrintWhite Spaghetti Recipe Prep Time: 15 minutesCook Time: 35 minutesTotal Time: 50 minutes Yield: 6 servingsServing Size: 1.5 cupCalories per serving: 372Fat per serving: 10 Ingredients8 oz Spaghetti 10.5 oz Cream of Chicken Soup 16 oz frozen Peppers for Stir Fry 1 cup water ½ cup Parmesan Cheese InstructionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cup Custard ~ 1933 Magic Chef

Vintage cookbooks give us a snapshot of life at the time they were published. This recipe was in the 1933 copy of Magic Chef Cooking. It was a common dessert and I’m sure cooks were glad to have this good basic recipe!
