Spaghetti Beef Casserole Recipe

We love spaghetti, and as the mother of three boys, this casserole has been a life saver! Fast and delicious, it was a favorite at pre-game meals and sports banquets. —Jane Radtke, Griffith, Indiana

"This was good and easy for a week night meal. I only made half of the recipe. I omitted the water and used a can of diced tomatoes with oregano and rosemary. I also used ground beef and Italian sausage. I wasn't too sure about using cheddar cheese, so I used cheddar to mix into the casserole, but topped it with a 6 mix Italian white cheese. This is a versatile casserole and my family enjoyed it."

"Made half batch and will be using recipe again. I recommend whole wheat spaghetti which is usually too tough for my taste but ended up working perfectly with the double cooking. Not at all soggy like others experienced, so I will stick with the whole wheat in the future. Added 1 t. Italian seasoning and a can of roasted tomatoes but still not flavorful enough for me. Next time want to add canned green chilies and more spices to help up the flavor ante. (You can cut out the water altogether if you use canned tomatoes with their juices like I did. I added a 1/4-1/3 cup water but ended up a tiny bit soupy so will omit liquid altogether next time.) An easy pleasy recipe that I will be keeping on hand and will definitely make again."

"Too much canned soup for someone who is on a low sodium diet and didn't sound too Italian."

"This makes a nice, comfort food dinner for a weeknight or Saturday. Since it uses condensed soups instead of spaghetti sauce, it is easier on the stomach for those of use who have heartburn as well as producing a different flavor for a nice change. I asked my 2 boys if they thought spaghetti sauce would be better, but they said no, it is fine as it is."

"Whoa! Sorry to be so harsh, but this was disgusting. I would not want to mislead anyone that this could possibly be worth the groceries, time and mess.. I will unthaw the second casserole and toss it. So bland, mushy, eeeh. My kids pushed it around with their forks and I was upset with them until I took 2 bites. All plates dumped in sink and we ordered pizza. Have I made my 1 star rating clear?"

"Pretty good, but the recipe could definitely use more tomato in it. Some extra spices would add a lot to it as well."

"i found the sauce to taste kinda like what it was - canned soup, so i added a can of diced tomatoes and some italian seasoning to give it some spaghetti flavor since it didn't have any at all. i also used mozzarella cheese on top instead of the cheddar which i found more suitable since it is spaghetti. next time i'll use fresh mushrooms since i'm not a fan of canned ones. this dish has great potential, a good base recipe."
