    I liked the spaghetti in our cafeteria. They made everything from scratch in our small town. I really loved the baked cheese sandwiches we had. I'd love a recipe for those!

    If I remember I will get our recipe from school. I work in the High school cafeteria and get their recipes all the time.

    A hint on a meatloaf. They make theirs just like I do mine with meat, onion, oats, etc. But mine was never as good as theirs. Then I found the secret was they mix it all in a mixer with the blade, it makes it like mush (my daughter asked was I making a bowl of dogfood I swear), anyway I baked it and my hubby said it was a keeper recipe. I told him it was the same one I've used for the 11 years we have been married, I just mixed it differently. He said the texture was so much better.

    qagal....you are sooooooo funny! Really, I'm searching for a friend who asked. I thought our school spaghetti was fairly good though. My own mom never cooked spaghetti until I was almost grown....she thought Italian food/pasta was too fatening.

    My friend remembers this spaghetti as very beefy tasting & not spicy. That's all I have to go on.

    thanks! Cali

    Cafeterias food was good back in the 50's and it was home made not this junk they feed the kids now.

    When I first started cooking at the school where I use to work the government supplied us with ground turkey, ground pork and ground beef.
    We use to use all three in our spaghetti sauce. Then they stopped the ground turkey and pork and thus all we used was the beef. Most of the ingredients were the same as what you would use at home except much greater in volume. Crushed tomatoes,
    tomato paste, oregano, basil, garlic,
    salt, pepper, sugar, and de-hydrated onion, as we very rarely got the real onions. Hope this was of some help.

    Hi Cali, I have a recipe for your friend. We had the best little old lady oooks at my school. They all volunteered their time (wasn't public school)and made the best food. I believe this recipe is very much like the spaghetti we had in school. It makes quite a bit too.

    Creamy Tomato Spaghetti Bake

    1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
    1/2 c. chopped onion
    3/4 c. chopped green pepper
    1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
    1 (10 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup - reduced fat or fat-free is fine
    3 - 4 cups cooked spaghetti or pasta of your choice
    1 (16 oz.) container cottage cheese
    1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    In skillet, brown ground beef with onion and green pepper, until beef is no longer pink. Drain.

    Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

    In large mixing bowl, combine crushed tomatoes and cream of mushroom soup. Add drained ground beef mixture.

    In medium roaster or 12x9x3" disposable foil baking pan, mix cooked pasta with cottage cheese.

    Pour tomato/meat sauce on top and mix well. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake in 325 oven for 45 mins. to 1 hour or until casserole is bubbly and the cheese is melted.
