Save a Penny Casserole Recipe

At the office where I worked years ago, we women often shared our favorite recipes at lunchtime. This casserole came from a co-worker, and my family has enjoyed it for some 30 years. Besides being easy and quick to prepare, it's very economical. It serves well for church suppers and potlucks, and it's a real time-saver on washdays!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) spaghetti in tomato sauce with cheese
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mixed vegetables, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, optional


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook beef until no longer pink; drain. Stir in soup, spaghetti and vegetables. Transfer to an ungreased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese if desired; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"The canned spaghetti in this casserole gave it a bad taste. I wouldn't recommend this recipe. Visually, it is also not appealing."

"The photo is what caught my eye; looks like simple comfort food. I've made this 3-4 times, the last couple times using my own spaghetti with some jarred sauce. It's always good."
