Family Recipe: Halsted Street Spaghetti

My Grandma C wrote down this recipe in 2010 (so says the notecard). I’m writing down the recipe as is…. but would probably use mozzarella cheese instead of american for this 🙂  Definitely more of an American recipe than an Italian one too. Given the name Halsted St, this is from Chicago… but not sure if this was served in their restaurant or not.  I’ll have to ask!

Halsted Street Spaghetti Bake

Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes


1 lb spaghetti, cooked and rinsed in cold water
2 cans of tomatoes with juice
2 chopped green peppers
2 chopped onions
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon pepper
(1 cup?) Grated or sliced American cheese
(1 cup?) Milk


Boil a large pot of salted water, add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Drain and since the spaghetti in cold water.

Begin by doing a small dice on the onion and pepper. Saute the peppers and onions in the butter, about 10 minutes until soft. Mix all ingredients in a bowl: spaghetti, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and pepper. Fill ingredients in a 9×13 inch pan. Add milk when you can see it in the pan (but not too much… you can always add more if its dry). Top with grated or sliced cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and spaghetti is hot (guessing 10-15 minutes?)
