I had to feed my family of 4 without a stove. We moved into a rental that was supposed to have a stove. It was electric and the first time I touched it I got shocked! With 2 little ones the stove had to be unplugged! NO gas connections either. We had a Coleman camp stove but had to drive 20 miles 1 way just to get more fuel for it. Food that would cook in a microwave was our meal fare till we could find another electric stove. Hubby was picky. The 3 year old loved spaghetti and the 1 year old was just learning to eat family food so it was a challenge to find foods that would satisfy everyone.

How to Make Spaghetti One Dish Supper by Microwave


  • 1Put ground meat in a microwave safe 2 quart bowl. Heat and stir to break up meat into small pieces.
    Should take around 4 minutes.
  • 2When meat is no longer pink. Add tomato juice and seasonings. Heat to very hot - almost boiling.
    WATCH the tomato juice will boil over very easily.
  • 3Add spaghetti that is broken into about 3 - 4 inch pieces. This length makes it easier to stir.
  • 4Cook on high and stir about every minute so nothing gets clumpy. Cook till spaghetti is al-dente.

    NOTE: Total cooking time is approximate. Since this recipe was done in the 1970s microwaves have changed a lot!
  • 5Serve with grated Parmesan and/or Romano Cheese.
  • 6NOTE: The grocery store where we shopped would blend the ground meat to your desires.
  • 7I apologize for not having pictures. I don't have a camera that will take pictures and put them on the computer. If someone wants to, I'd be happy to have you add a picture.
