Spaghetti has always been one of my favorite dishes. It's easy to make, and provides a delicious, filling meal. Everyone prefers their spaghetti sauce differently. Some like it to be just a tomato sauce, while others prefer large meatballs scattered throughout. Personally, I like my meat sauce somewhere in the middle. I love having lots of cooked ground beef mixed into the sauce, so you get chunks of meat in every bite.

This recipe is my grandmother's recipe, and is the recipe I have grown up with. With six kids, my grandmother sure knew how to cook a great meal... I wouldn't change a thing.


  • 1 family size can of tomato soup
  • 1 regular can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 1 small pkg Lawry's Spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1 pinch Italian seasoning
  • 1 lb hamburger meat
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • salt, pepper, garlic salt, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 12 oz spaghetti
  • parmesan cheese (optional)

  1. Fry onion with hamburger meat and season with salt, pepper and garlic salt.
  2. In large pan, combine soups and tomato sauce.
  3. Add water, Italian seasoning and spaghetti mix.
