When I was in Colorado, my niece Kristen Iverson made this for supper one night for me, it was SO good! I had never had spaghetti like this before, and it was honesty to die for. When I got home, she sent me the recipe, and I made it that night. YUM! I had lots of jars of canned tomato sauce that was already seasoned with the spices below and putting dinner together that night was a breeze~ Then, my husband tells me, umm I love this, can you make it like this from now on... lol so now this is a staple in our menu plan. I hope you enjoy as much as we do.
1 pound hamburger
1 onion (diced)
1 pound bacon
1 QT homemade tomato sauce (or) 2 jars meaty spaghetti sauce from store
1 TS minced garlic
1 can mushrooms (stems and pieces) optional
1 can diced tomatoes
1 package spaghetti noodles
If you are using 2 jars of the meaty spaghetti sauce (or plain tomato sauce)
2 Bay leaves
1 TS oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parmesan for topping!~
Okay, onto how to put it together. I used 1 QT of my homemade tomato sauce (canned) you can see the video on that below. Brown your hamburger with 1 TS minced garlic and diced onion. (leave it in bigger chunks) set that aside when hamburger is completely cooked through. Cut bacon into very small bite size pieces and fry until soft with a little crisp. In another large pot, add cooked hamburger and onion, bacon, and other spices, 1 can diced tomatoes and mushrooms, add tomato sauce to cover, and stir. Cook on stove top till your noodles are finished. (follow directions for noodles on package. (if you are using plain tomato sauce) simmer for 30 min.
If using bay leaves (remove) add noodles to sauce and enjoy~
