This is a good casserole recipe I got from my mother. Sauteing the onions, green peppers and mushrooms in bacon grease is what gives this a special flavor.

This made for a comfort food meal. I had questions with the suggested amount of spaghetti. Eight ozs of cooked pasta didn't seem like it would make 8 servings. I guesstimated and also cut back the sugar to 1 teaspoon and the salt by half (personal preference). The dish is easy to prepare and I liked the flexibility of making it and then baking it later.

This made a good tasty dinner for us. The spaghetti amt is confusing I made it as take 8 ounces and cook it. It would not fit in a 1 QT pan. We put it in a 3 QT pan with room left. My son thought it should be 8 ounces when it is cooked. Made for the Orphanage Spring 2014.
