Casserole Italiano

Jeannie Clarke


This recipe has been one of our family favorites for years. I love its versatility; if you have unexpected guests, just add more noodles. The original recipe actually called for 1 can of tomato soup, 1/2 soup can of water, and 1/2 tsp. oregano instead of the spaghetti sauce. I substituted once when I realized I didn't have soup but did have spaghetti sauce; either is delicious. Just add a salad and some garlic bread and you have an easy, delicious meal in less than an hour.
