Grandma's Best Casserole is one of those easy casserole recipes you'll turn to time and time again. This easy, old fashioned recipe will have you feeling like you've taken a page out of Granny's recipe book. Made with easy and delicious ingredients like bacon, spaghetti, onions, tomato, bell pepper, chicken broth and condensed cheese soup, this dish is packed with amazing flavor. This cheesy and comforting pasta casserole is something you'll look forward to eating after a long day. It's a great recipe to make for the kids too (who doesn't love a cheesy spaghetti with bacon?) Keep this recipe in your back pocket, and pull it out whenever you need something that is easy and completely satisfying.

Serves: 8

Cooking Time: 40 min

Cooking Vessel Size: 9 x 13-inch baking dish

Ingredients
  • 8 ounces bacon, chopped
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (10-3/4-ounce) cans condensed cheese soup
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add 1 Tablespoon salt and cook spaghetti until al dente, about 7 minutes or as package directs. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet saut the bacon over medium heat until it is just beginning to crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour out accumulated bacon fat, leaving about 1 tablespoon in the pan.
  4. Add onion and bell pepper into the skillet, return to medium high and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, broth and soup, stirring until well combined. Add spaghetti and the reserved bacon, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. If the pan you used is ovenproof you can simply smooth the mixture and place it directly into the oven. If not, pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Bake for about 40 minutes.

I love this simple pasta dish. The sauce could not be any easier to make. I think the bacon adds sucha strong and lovely flavor to it that grandma's signature dishes do.

Would love a few easy recipes for a group of say 20 people. The holidays are around the corner and I would like some fast and easy meals for lunch or dinner.

backntyme 3759371, I suppose if you like this recipe, you could always double or triple it to serve more people. It looks like it serves 8 as written.

Condensed cheese soup? Would Velveeta work just as well?

This looks comforting and delicious!
