Cooking Thursday


Today's recipe is one of our favorites. It makes 2 pans - one to eat and one to freeze!
I use it often as a meal to bring away - everyone likes it!
For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.



Spaghetti Casserole
1 pkg (16 ounces) angel hair pasta
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce ( I use Hunts 4 cheese)
2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
1 can cream of mushroom soup
16 ounces sour cream
4 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
Cook pasta for a slightly shorter time than directed on pkg, until just done. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown beef and drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce. Remove from heat. Stir together cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. In two 8x11 freezer pans, layer half the meat sauce, pasta, sour cream mix and cheese. Repeat layers. Cover tightly with foil and freeze up to 3 months.
To use frozen casserole: Thaw in refrigerator. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Mmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm!!! Yes oh yes...I'll be making this in due time. We both love Italian foods. And the fact that you prompted us to make two and freeze one...well, that ALWAYS appeals to me.

Hope your day is stupendous Mari.

Brooke said...

can you taste the SC? i love the idea of freezing one for later, but not sure J would eat it b/c of the sour cream.

Sharon said...

Oooh -- thanks for the recipe!

The mushroom soup is a little different addition. Sounds good. Having extra would be nice too. I am always looking for recipes of things to freeze and make ahead. This is a great idea.

Diane said...

This spaghetti dish makes my mouth water. I love cheesy spaghetti, and I have never tried mixing cream of mushroom and sour cream to my pasta casserole. Thanks for this yummy recipe. I will try it soon.

I also loved the photo you posted for wordless wednesday. Was the photo taken recently? If so, it's amazing that Michigan still looks like winter in March.

Blessings on your day...
