"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

24 oz can (1lb 12 oz.) crushed tomatoes
The BEST Cheddar Cheese (not the rubber)



Directions:
Directions:
1 lb chopped RAW meat.----no less--This is for a 1 1/2 CT casserole. Do not buy cheap hamburger as you will have the fat all over the oven and the chopped meat, IT IS NOT CHEAP. Break into small pieces and add (cut small) raw onion. Place on bottom of casserole. If I have enough I put the raw stems in. Then add tomatoes and cooked spaghetti. Again I mention crushed canned tomatoes because you don't have to mask or crush them. About one large 24 oz can (1 lb. 12 oz). Layer spaghetti and tomatoes until you have the tomatoes on top.. You don't get that many layers.
Then cut up in small pieces the BEST cheddar cheese (NOT THE RUBBER) and cover the top, and on top of that put mushrooms until you cover the top or depending on how wealthy you feel that week. Use knife to make sure that juices get down the side the sides of the casserole.
Bake 1 1/2 hrs. at 325/350. Enjoy and take on 2 lbs.

Note: You can add liquid to the tomatoes if you think the casserole looks too dry. Make sure you spray the casserole with PAM or grease with oil on the bottom and handle.

Personal Notes:
Grandma typed (on her old typewriter) this recipe for me when I was getting married 28 3/4 years ago. Her note on the bottom was "Charles won't I'm sure gain the 2 lbs. Sorry I can't be more specific. But I never saw this in writing nor have I ever written it. I really believe I made this one up."
