Pasa De Shuto

My father, who had worked on the railroad, use to make this dish for special family occasions. After he passed away, our family discovered that no one else had this recipe! Then one of my school friends mentioned Pasa de Shuto and shared her recipe with me. I experimented with it until it tasted just the way my father made it.

    I made this dish for the first time. It was excellent and I will make this again. I had enough leftovers for three days worth of meals.

    Didn't like the seasonings added. My husband said it tasted funny.

    I use chopped parsnips as one of the vegetables because my family likes their peppery-sweet flavor. After adding the spaghetti to the meat and vegetable mixture, I sometimes pour everything into a casserole dish and pop it into the oven to keep warm.My two sons loved this dish so much while they were growing up that they often requested it, and they still do. When my younger son got his first leave from the USAF, he called to tell me to be sure to fix Pasa De Shuto for him.
