Reviews for Baked Spaghetti
Sort By :
"I fixed this last night for supper and it was absolutely DELICIOUS !!!!! I would have never thought that cream of mushroom soup on top of baked spaghetti would be good. It was a big hit at my house. :)"
"YUM!! I also don't like canned soup, I make a white sauce & add LOTS of mushrooms. I eliminate the green peppers and olives, just my preference."
"This was delish!! LaHolm, you can use a simple white sauce (flour, milk, butter) instead of the canned soup."
"Fabulous , easy recipe and I gave it 5 stars because I copied & printed about ten of the reviews with variations on the theme. Incredibly useful for the basic recipe and variations to suit my mood or the spices and meats I have on hand."
"This is my #1 favorite recipe that I ever found in ToH magazine. I made it all the time when my kids were growing up. However, the original recipe called for whole, not diced tomatoes. I don't know why they changed it - I've made it both ways and prefer it the way the recipe was originally written. I add a little granulated garlic, and I also use fresh mushrooms and saute them over med-high heat until they get a little color. Ground turkey works great, too. Love love love this recipe."
