Spaghetti Casserole

Have you ever had just one of those days?  I have been trying to grow my hair out and it has been difficult process.  Yesterday, I finally had a good hair day. I rushed out the door to get my daughter from the bus and drove because it was raining hard.  I get out of the car, open my umbrella and go to cross the street.  Just then a gust of wind rips the umbrella off and I am left holding the pole.  Needless to say my good hair day lasted about 5 minutes.. ... Oh well, atleast I had a productive day for a change.  I made:
2 spaghetti casseroles
a batch of french bread
One shepherd pie
3 lbs of meatballs.
(I really don't know what got into me or where the energy came from.)

My grandma made me spaghetti casserole one time.  I loved the little different twist on spaghetti and not to mention it tasted great.  I regretted never getting the recipe from her.  For years I played around with ingredients and think I finally got it pretty close to hers. 

Spaghetti Casserole
1 lb. hamburger, cooked
12-16 oz thin spaghetti, cooked and drained. (Break it in half or thirds before cooking.)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can tomato soup
1 can sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

Mix all ingredients except mozzarella cheese in a large bowl.  Add one cup mozzarella cheese.  Spread in to a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Sprinkle the other cup of mozzarella cheese and a little more parmesan on top of casserole.  Bake covered  for 30-35 minutes.  Uncover for the last 10 minutes.  If refrigerated it may take a few more minutes to cook.

I like to add a little extra cheese.  I was a bit low on cheese this time!!

  1. I've heard of this, but I've never had it. I'll have to give it a try.
