I made this several years ago. I had been sick and I kept craving my grandmother's chicken spaghetti. Whenever we have chicken spaghetti it's always the Velveeta recipe, which is good. But I was wanting hers and the only thing I knew was that it was tomato-based. So I started searching for a recipe. This one sounded like pure comfort food to me, so I gave it a try. It wasn't exactly like my grandmother's because I know she didn't use sour cream. But it certainly did hit the spot. (And quite honestly could be better than hers!)
