Baked Spaghetti

This is one of my family's favorite meals! It is easy and yummy!

You can make your own sauce.
1 cup onion chopped
1cup green pepper chopped
1 Tbs butter/margarine
1 can tomatoes 28 oz. cute up
1 can mushroom-drained
1 can ripe olives-sliced
2 tsp oregano

I use a jar of sauce!!! Easier and faster!! Probably cheaper!

1 LB ground beef-browned and drained
12 oz spaghetti -cooked
2 cup cheddar cheese-8 oz
2 cans cream of mushroom soup-diluted (cream of chicken works well also)
1/4 cup H2O
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In large skillet, simmer ground beef and sauce for 10 min. uncovered. Place 1/2 spaghetti in a greased 13 x 9 pan. Top with 1/2 sauce mix. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers. Mix soup and water until smooth. Pour over casserole and sprinkle with parm. cheese, bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

I love this recipe. It is great for when you are having company as well!!

Dutch Apple Pie

Okay, you all probably have your own recipe that you love for apple pie. We had over half a bushel of apples so I made 4 pies.
I used graham cracker crust.

7 peeled, cored and finely sliced apples (don't use granny smith)
1/2 cup sugar
several shakes of cinnamon

Mix the filling together and put in graham cracker crust

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
several shakes of cinnamon
1/2 cup cold butter

Cut in butter into flour,sugar and cinnamon until mixture resembles course crumbs. Sprinkle over pie filling

Bake 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden brown. Cool a bit and then sprinkle with powder sugar.
Of course eat warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and carmel.
OHHHH so good!!
