Jiffy Spaghetti

Now, you have to understand that Mom didn’t like tomato-y things.  But she must have tried to like it.  There are several spaghetti recipes in the cookbook.  Well maybe she thought this one might work because the meat called for in it is ham…..but, I’m wondering if a 12-ounce can of table-ready meat is really Spam…….?

Jiffy Spaghetti
(Household Recipe)

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 cups cubed ham or table-ready meat (12-ounce can)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 14 cups condensed tomato soup (10 1/2 ounce can)
3/4 cup water
4 ounces long spaghetti
Grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter or margarine in skillet.  Add onion, green pepper and garlic and brown lightly.  Add meat and brown.  Sir in brown sugar, vinegar and mustard.  Add tomato soup and water, mixing well.l  Cover, reduce heat and simmer 15 to 20 minutes.  While meat mixture simmers, cook spaghetti in boiling salted water until tender (about 12 minutes).  Drain and rinse.  Arrange spaghetti on hot platter or chop plate and top with meat sauce.  Sprinkle generously with Parmesan Cheese.
