Isabel's Jewish Spaghetti

Isabel's Jewish Spaghetti created by Parsley

This recipe was posted elsewhere by Celia Yasner, of Atlanta, GA. She says "This recipe was my grandmother Isabel's. It's greatly influenced by the depression when Velveeta first appeared in the markets. She used to serve this during the holidays with a sweet and sour brisket!" I'm intrigued.

    Without the Velveeta (or the butter), it could be Kosher! My Grandmother made ketchup and onion spaghetti and put it in a frying pan. It was terrific and reminds me of this. Maybe leftovers could be reheated in a pan. Just food for thought! (PS-I was born in Omaha!)

    A kid-pleaser for sure! I wanted something quick and easy for the kids tonight, since hubby was working very late. I didn't feel like meat, so this was ideal. I added some garlic powder, and it was still a bit bland, but still good ("depression food" usually is a bit bland). I would also add some minced fresh onions next time, I think. I did bake it as directed for 30 minutes; it gets nice and bubbly and since it's covered, doesn't dry out. My kids absolutely loved this!!! My husband got out of work early and had some and really loved it, too! I'll make this again; thanx for posting!

    This was easy to make and reminiscent of my childhood. My husband and grown sons devoured it.
