At The Beginning Of The Pandemic When Food Stores Were Being Emptied - I Bought Some Spam..... [View all]

Instead of continuing to take up space in my pantry - I decided to cook it up and use it. Now I haven't had span since my Boy Scout days back in the 60's when we went camping.

Here's what I made:

1. I cooked up 1 lb of angel hair pasta in salted water.
2. I diced the whole piece/can of Spam and put it in a pan with 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and 1 teaspoonful of minced garlic.
3. I fried it up until it started to brown turning it with a wooden spoon to make sure diced meat was browned on both sides.
4. I added two 14.5oz cans of Margaret Holmes - Tomatoes, Okra & Corn to the pan with the Spam and heated til a mild boiling.
5. I added about 1/3 cup of reserved pasta water and turned the heat down to a simmer.
6. Simmered it for about 10 minutes.
7. Added the angel hair to the pan and tossed it till covered.
8. Plated and served it up.

I was floored. It turned out to be a very enjoyable and tasty dish. As I didn't know what to expect - I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied with my concoction.

I will make this again and I actually will look forward to eating and enjoying it.
