My mom made her spaghetti this way and I kept the tradition up. We love this recipe.
Grandmas Baked Spaghetti
1 lb. spaghetti, cooked and drained (as per directions on the box)
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 cup chopped onion
Brown hamburger and onion in a large skillet. Add to the meat mixture the following:
1 qt. tomato juice (I use my home canned, but from the grocery is fine)
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. white sugar
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. Italian seasonings
Simmer all this together for about 10 minutes.
Place the cooked spaghetti into a 9 X 13 glass baking pan and then ladle the sauce over the spaghetti, stir it in. Drizzle the top in a back and forth motion with ketchup and then sprinkle with pepper.
Place in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve with Parmesan cheese for those who wish to use it.
