Monterey Spaghetti

 Monterey Spaghetti
I'm a working mother with two young boys. Our family leads a very active life, so I make a lot of casseroles. It's so nice to have a hearty, nutritious side dish the kids will eat. Topped with cheese and french-fried onions, this tasty casserole is a hit at our house. -Janet Hibler, Cameron, Missouri
