Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Place the cooked pasta into a large mixing bowl, and add the cream of mushroom soup, ketchup, green chiles, onion, and luncheon meat. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and evenly sprinkle with the Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is hot and the Cheddar cheese has melted, about 10 minutes.

My boys loved this as kids. Now at 37 and 38 whenever I visit them they always ask for this dish. I used spaghetti sauce instead of ketchup and I fried the spam in little pieces first. I didn't use the cheddar cheese or onion or peppers but may try this one in the future. We LOVE this dish. Am making it tonight for my 38 year son at his request. Read More

I had to mix and match but it came out better than expected. All my kids(3) loved it and I chose to make this cuz I was in a pinch. I used Mozz instead of cheddar, cream of chicken instead of mushroom, and had only MAYBE half a cup of ketchup left. quick and easy for this single pop of three. SPAM is adored and respected in our house. Ppl like us(from Islands) usually have a place in our heart for the canned meats. Imported beef and pork is high. Read More

Loved this! Made it with tri-color bow ties and used a hot banana pepper from the garden instead of the green chilis. My 8 year old daughter ate it right down. Thanks for this easy and delicious dinner! Read More

I followed this recipe to the T and I have to say it was the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten in my life. I guess everyone to his own tastes and this is NOT mine. Read More

This was an okay recipe. It was a good way to use a can of SPAM I found when cleaning out my pantry. The ketchup and greeen chiles are definitely the dominant flavors. If I were to make it again I would put more onion and less green chiles but everything else I would leave the same. Read More

My husband loves this casserole! I substituted tomato/basil spaghetti sauce for the ketchup (as I am not a ketchup fan) used jalapenos instead of green chili peppers (no chili peppers were on hand) sauteed the spam & onion together before mixing into the casserole and added a touch of Frank's hot sauce for an extra kick. This recipe has entered the regular rotation of recipes in my kitchen. Read More

Made this today. I deleted the ketchup. Used broccoli and instead of cheddar cheese I used pepper jack cheese. Delish! Read More
