Outstanding! Freezes very well and reheats in microwave partially covered or in the oven covered. Cornflakes whole or crushed make an excellent topping.

Except for my lack of being prepared to make this, which made it take more time to prepare, this recipe was DE LISOUS! I made a huge casserole and my picky hubby ate 2 HUGE helpings. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe. I added 1 up of riccota cheese, and changed the cream of chicken for cream of celery... otherwise it was the same.

This recipe was quick and easy and the taste was AWESOME! My boys licked their plates! :o) The only change I made was to use crushed croutons instead of corn flakes for the topping.

My family loves this spaghetti especially my teenage grandsons. They don't like mushrooms so I leave them out. It seems a little dry to me so I add another can of soup. It also freezes well if you are lucky enough to have any left. I don't put on the topping. I also saute the celery and onions before cooking the casserole.
