German Spaghetti

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bangbang

This was made by my Mother Inlaw from Germany. My wife made this often and it inspired my own version which you can find under Hamburger Gravy.

This was definitely interesting, and I must admit the more you ate the more it grew on you. The color is very bland and unappetizing, so it may not appeal to some that way. I used leek instead of onion as I had one to use up. And if you do not have Maggi seasoning I would NOT make a special trip to buy it like I did. It tastes exactly like soy sauce. All that said I would make this again, but it would not be a regular in rotation unfortunately. It is good, but not something I would "crave".
