Mother Brown's Spaghetti Casserole

My mom often brought this casserole to church suppers and it was very popular! But you don't have to be going to a church supper to try it! You can try it anytime! It's a different taste for spaghetti that you may want to investigate! When I asked my mom for the recipe on the phone, my dad piped up in the background that he likes it with peppers, so feel free to add whatever you may like to this dish from my childhood!

This isn't bad, but it was too salty for me.

It sounds so simple- but tastes so good! My husband thought I had used BBQ sauce. I added garlic to the onion, and cooked the onion and garlic with the hamburger. Way good!

This is a simple and flavorful dish! I made this for the Silent Cricket Cookathon, and it was enjoyed by my whole family. I used ground turkey in place of the beef, but other than than I followed the directions exactly, and it was done in about 50 minutes. I will definitely be making this again.
