“Great side dish for pork chops, cube steaks and pork cutlets. Kids love it anytime as side dish or main course. For leftovers, just put the cheese spaghetti in a bowl and top with leftover pork & beans and reheat in the microwave later.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 -10 ounces thin spaghetti (you can use other types)
  • 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 5 slices American cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pork and beans


  1. Break dry spaghetti into thirds and cook in boiling water until done to your preference (usually about 10 minutes). Drain.
  2. In small saucepot over medium heat, melt cheese in the evaporated milk stirring constantly to create sauce. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Pour sauce over drained spaghetti and stir to coat.
  4. Put beans in a saucepot or microwave dish and add about 1/4 to 1/3 can of water swooshing around to "wash sides" and add to the beans. Heat to serving temperature. Drain off some of the liquid into a glass measuring cup to be used like gravy.
  5. After serving the spaghetti. Pour some of the reserved "gravy" on top of the spaghetti.
