This week I have been thinking a lot about my mom. I lost my mother to breast cancer a few years ago and I miss her every day. I think I missed her especially this week as I received some good news and just wished I could personally tell her all about it. This longing had me thinking of comfort food and some of my moms best dishes…she was an excellent cook!
Mom’s Company Spaghetti is a dish that we all clamored for and couldn’t get enough of. It is so tasty and easy to make – pretty much everything is prepared in one pot. We called it Company Spaghetti because, well she would make it when company came over 🙂 Lets get started!
I usually pour the ingredients into two smaller pans and freeze one. It freezes very well.
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 large white onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 - 10 3/4 oz can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 soup can of water
1 - 24 oz can petite diced tomatoes
2 TBS chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz. pkg spaghetti noodles
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese cut into chunks
8 oz jar/canned olives - they can be black or green
1 - 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Brown ground chuck. Add next nine ingredients and simmer for 2 hours. Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions. Combine meat sauce, cheese chunks, olives and cooked spaghetti noodles. Pour into a 3 quart casserole pan or baking dish. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.
