TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked spaghetti, broken into 3-inch pieces
  • 4 pounds ground beef
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  • 1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and place in two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes; set aside.
  • 2. In two Dutch ovens or stock pots, cook the beef, onions and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. To each pot, add 2 cups of milk, two cans of tomato soup, one can of mushroom soup and 1 cup of cheese. Bring to a boil.
  • 3. Spoon over spaghetti (spaghetti will absorb liquid during baking). Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and top is lightly browned. Yield: 2 casseroles (12 servings each).
