Servings: 4
  • ½ can of Spam canned meat
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 cup of crushed pretzels
  • 2 cups of homemade chicken broth or canned chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoons of ground curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 package 8-oz. size of fresh mushrooms, slicked
  • 1 small onion chopped fine
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 medium potatoes peeled and cubed into small pieces
  • 8- ounces of penne pasta or your favorite form of pasta or noodles, cooked
  1. Brown your chopped onion in the olive oil until golden brown before adding your sliced mushrooms to fry as well.
  2. While they are frying, I like to roll out my pretzels. Grab a sheet of wax paper long enough to fold over your pretzels that are about to be crushed. Use your rolling pin and crush until broken up fine.
  3. Cook your penne pasta or noodles al dente.
  4. Cook your cubed potatoes in water like usual until almost done.
  5. Afterwards, I assemble all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl first before pouring into my waiting large, greased casserole dish. I found it easier to mix this way than trying to struggle stirring in the casserole dish.
  6. Send the filled casserole and covered dish to a 350-degree oven for about 40-minutes. Check after 30 minutes to see if you need to add any more broth. If so, just add enough to moisten and then return to your oven to finish baking.
  7. ENJOY!
