Description

It’s a great creamy, cheesy spaghetti, with a little heat. Mmm. We can always use more heat in Texas. Ha.

I also like this recipe because it’s one of those “dump” recipes, where ya just DUMP the whole can in. It’s especially therapeutic when you’re irritated, lazy, or short on time. Maybe I should start a cookbook on “dump recipes.” Hmm … my brain’s gone to thinkin’ again.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Meat, Your Choice
  • ½ cups Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2 cans (10 Oz. Size) Rotel
  • 1 can (10 Oz. Can) Cream Of Mushroom Soup
  • 12 ounces, fluid Spaghetti Sauce
  • 2 jars (5 Oz. Size) Old English Cheese
  • 12 ounces, weight Linguine Noodles
  • Parmesan Garnish, Optional

Preparation

First, if you’ve never heard of Old English cheese (nor seen it in Grandma’s fridge), it is a processed cheese product found near the Velveeta. It comes in small glass jars, perfect for a pimiento cheese sandwich.

Brown your ground meat over medium heat, add in your diced onion, garlic, and salt and pepper. I do believe I add garlic to every savory dish I make. It cleans the heart, you know! Saute for 5–6 minutes until the onions are soft, and the mixture is fragrant. Add in your liquids (Rotel, sauce, soup, and cheese) and cook for another 20–25 minutes, slow and low, baby.

Meanwhile, boil your water, and cook your noodles according to package instructions. I chose to balance out my creamy sauce with WHOLE WHEAT noodles! They’re delicious I think, a little “nuttier.” (He hee, I said the same thing about my crock pot oatmeal.)

Once you drain your noodles, return to the pot, add your sauce, stir and serve! Garnish with (lots of) parmesan! Molto bene! (That’s Italian for “very good!”)
