In Response To: Yum !! Good stuff.... :-) (Joe Ames)
Hi Everyone...I've noticed that a lot of people have checked my posted recipes, why not post some of yours. I'de love to see some new people post their favorite recipes, maybe you would like to trade with me, I have a lot of tried & true dishes. This Baked Spaghetti is one of them. Beverly R...Michigan
8 oz thin spaghetti-cooked
28 oz Stewed tomatoes-undrained
1/2 - 1 lb bacon-diced & fried until crisp
1 Onion-chopped & cooked in bacon grease
1 tsp dried oregano
Dried or fresh parsley, to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
2-3 links Italian sausage, removed from casings & fried in bacon grease & drained-
***I now boil this sausage, in casings, first, to remove salt & some of the fat.***
4 oz cheddar cheese-grated
Grated Parmesan cheese for topping
Spray 9 x 13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cook spaghetti & set aside, in large bowl...Fry diced bacon, until crisp. Remove bacon from pan & put into bowl with spaghetti, do now throw away bacon grease. Fry Italian sausage, until done, (break up all big pieces) remove from pan & put into bowl with spaghetti & bacon. Do not throw away bacon grease. Now, fry onion in bacon grease, until cooked thru but not browned. Remove from pan & add to spaghetti mixture. Now you can throw away bacon grease! Add stewed tomatoes to spaghetti mixture & mix well. Use salt & pepper to taste. Add oregano & parsley & again, mix well. Put spaghetti mixture into 9 x 13 pan. Put grated cheddar cheese on top & parmesian cheese on top of that ; covering top of spaghetti well. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until top is nicely browned.
This is a recipe, for baked spaghetti, that my dad used to make. Not quite the same as his but almost! My dad died of cancer of the lungs, many years ago. When I found out he was going to die, I didn't have the nerve to ask him how he made his baked spaghetti; a mistake I have regretted on many occasions! I never liked this dish, as a kid but maturity has taken over & I have rediscovered "Baked Spaghetti", which I now enjoy!
The only thing that I have added to my dad's recipe, is the sweet Italian sausage & parsley. I think they are a nice addition.
Hope you enjoy it!
