My mom used to make spaghetti for us about once a week. It was affordable, simple, and we could feed the whole family without worrying about running out.
For the most part, we usually had leftovers which made a nice lunch for the following day. For all those years, my sister would always take hers plain. Maybe she would toss some butter and parmesan in with her pasta, but she would never, ever put my mom’s spaghetti sauce on her noodles. I never really understood it, and never really thought much of it. When we moved out and into an apartment together, we were often running short on cash.
I would recommend spaghetti for a meal, because I knew we could eat it for days. That’s when she finally told me, and I was embarrassed that I hadn’t figured it out yet, she doesn’t like red meat! Oh my gosh, how could I not know that?
So I went on the hunt to make spaghetti with her favorite, chicken. I whipped together something much like this recipe from Facebook. When she got home from work, she couldn’t get over the taste that was surrounding our entire living quarters.
She was so grateful that I took the time to make something that she approved of. This recipe still gets used at my house today. It’s too good to get rid of!
When it’s just me and some adult dinner guests that are going to be indulging in this recipe, we will often try and kick up the spice level a little bit. I like to throw some jalapenos in the mix just for a little extra zest. I usually leave a little extra out in a bowl too for those that want to garnish their individual dish with a little more. I don’t want to overdo it for those that aren’t quite into all the spice. Whenever we are hosting a game night at my house, this is the meal that all my friends and family request.
As long as your kids know this is spaghetti, I can guarantee they are going to love this!
