REC: TEXAS PARTY SPAGHETTI Men & kids love this - it can be made ahead and reheated beautifully - it feeds >>>> a crowd - it is delicious - it is good for a buffet - and all you need with it is a big salad and lots of crusty bread. Now this doesn't pretend to be an Italian-type dish -- 2 1/2 lb. ground round 4 or more to taste garlic cloves, minced 2-16 oz. cans of tomatoes 1-10 oz can of Rotel (tomatoes & peppers) 8 oz of sliced mushrooms 1/2 cup chopped green olives 1/2 cup chopped ripe olives 1 med. onion, chopped 2 lbs. American cheese, cubed 1 lb. package of spaghetti, cooked 1 lb. bacon, cooked crispy & crumbled salt & pepper to taste Brown the meat and toss in the garlic cloves at the end for a couple of minutes. Mix all the other ingredients together gently, and you need a huge bowl - I have a monster pottery bowl I use. Pour into a large baking dish, or use 2 smaller ones, and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with grated parmesan cheese. This is another recipe you can tinker with. I use a lot more onion that the recipe called for. The original recipe didn't call for garlic. If your local supermarket doesn't carry Rotel, throw in another can of tomatoes and chop up some hot peppers to suit your taste. This is a good buffet dish, because it doesn't need a knife and you can eat standing up if you have to. It is also a good dish to take when someone is sick because it reheats well.
