Hey Bees 🙂 Im not sure where to post this, so admins, please move it if I chose the wrong spot!
Anyways! My SO and I recently moved in together, into my place. I like to be a bit more on the traditional side, and cook, as I love cooking. However, last night SO did something that really suprised me. After I cooked the spaghetti and brought it over to the table, he took one look at it and refused to eat it. I said whats wrong and he goes “I cant eat it like this” I said “Oh no, why did I do something wrong?” and he goes, “no, you just didnt make it like my mom does. You forgot the sour cream.” HUH? Id never heard of this, like ever, and we didnt have any sour cream in the house, I had to make him butter noodles and veggies and I felt super bad. SO’s mom is German, straight from Germany, and today I read that germans and austrians add sour cream to pastas, however, I didnt come across anything about spaghetti with sour cream.
Have any of you Bees heard of this, done this, or tried this? The combo seems a bit strange, yet interesting to me. Im a bit afraid though! Im not very adventerous!

well I believe that beef stronganoff has sour cream and tomato sauce to make the sauce.

@BuffaloDots: Ive never had stroganoff. Hm, Ill have to try this.
@mishagirls79: It just never seemed like a good combo to me. Im pretty “safe” when it comes to food. Were you hesitant at all? lol. I just cant get past it, the only thing I put sour cream on are tacos!

Never heard of it before but curious if it is good!
By The Way you are much nicer than I am.. If I made something my husband refused to eat he would certainly be making his own buttered noodles. He should at least tried it!

I’ve never heard of this, but it might be alright (along the same lines as sour cream served with chili). You’re a trooper for making him a second dish though, don’t know that I’d have been so nice after he said “I can’t eat it like this.” 🙂

Yes you’re way too nice. I’d be so upset if my husband compared my food to his mom’s and said I did it wrong. He would have slept on the couch! lol

I use sour cream in some pasta sauces, but it’s by no means essential!

I wouldn’t make a habit of making everything ‘like his mum does’ that is a recipe for disaster.

Did you tell him that you’re not his mom, and that if you’re cooking for him he can either eat it or go to mcdonald’s?
Obviously it’s a cultural thing to add sour cream to the spaghetti sauce so how would you have known, but a) gross b) he can cook for himself if he wants everything to be a certain way.

@mrs.stormylove: Im curious as well. His mom puts sour cream on everything though, they have a gallon sized container in their fridge. Its crazy! I think he should have tried it too! I mean, I made it, he lives with me now! Haha. I felt bad though that he didnt like it and I guess kinda felt like it was my fault? Haha.
@MalbecMe: I felt kinda bad, he somehow made me feel like I ruined it. Im making spaghetti pie with the left overs and taking it to my grandmom tonight. At least she wont have to cook!
@BuffaloDots: Yeah I was pretty upset, its the first meal I cooked for “us”. I guess I should have ran it past him first or something! Not sure haha. It stung a little when he said that! He didnt get any action that night though so he did get punished! Lol.
@SpecialSundae: I can picture it in a cheese sauce, because they contain heavy cream, however, cant picture it in tomato sauce. Do you like it more than the normal sauce?

Keep your sour cream out of my spaghetti!

My mother has a recipe called Beef Supreme that’s made with pasta, sour cream and tomatoes, among many other things. It’s also topped with cheese.
I could see how sour cream could work in spaghetti.

I’ve never done it but am not a big fan of sour cream to start with. I am a big fan of spaghetti though! I hope he becomes more accepting of your cooking! It can be tough when you first move in to get used to “different” ways of doing things — everything from laundry to cooking to cleaning!
