Spaghetti for this former German was spaghetti noodles... and tomato sauce. It was the economy meal at our house. Nothing special at all.

This recipe was in The Detroit Free Press late ‘70’s or early 80’s. DH read the paper at work and would bring home recipes on occasion.

GERMAN SPAGHETTI

16 oz. spaghetti noodles, cooked

1 lb. Knockwurst, sliced

1 onion, sliced

1 TBL. horse radish

1/4 cup butter

1 cup beer

1/2 cup sour cream

1 TBL. mustard.


Cook noodles


Meltbutter and sauté knockwurst and onion. Add everything except noodles and simmer for 20 minutes.

Pour over noodles, stir, cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Optional: caraway seed, I don’t use it.

Must be a German-American thing. Never heard of it and I must say it is a waste of some good ingredients.

Just looked at a couple of German cookbooks, nothing there and the family cook, who is in demand at all family big occasions, said "NO WAY".

I've spent a lot of time in Germany, though I'm not from there, and the name of the dish sounded decidedly un-German to me. I was hoping that ultimately anneliese or oklamoni, with authentic German knowledge, would weigh in and the outcome was as I had expected.

Similar to what happened when bengardening spoke about what she thought was a "German" dish of noodles and prunes, also decidedly not German on its face. It turned out to be Russian, as her ancestors were from a group that had migrated to Russia.

I think it sounds very good. Who cares if it is authentic; the taste is what matters.

All 4 of my kids and DH loved the German Spaghetti. Not me, but if they would eat it I would make it.

That sounds good! Today we had "clean out the refrigerator pasta", with broccoli and hot Italian sausage. Sure could have used your sauce.

So funny how different recipes evolve; German spaghetti at our house growing up was onions sauteed in bacon grease, chopped up bacon, vinegar, and tomato sauce on shell macaroni. Still can't make it like grandma did!
