I have never made spaghetti this way and my husband and grandkids asked for seconds. I was told about this recipe by Linda, a fellow blogging friend. She said when she was young her mom made this all the time and they even ate it cold the next day. Check out her blog HERE.

    • I do grow my own, I have two 4’ x 4’ Raised herb beds in our garden that I have grown for years. The ones I cook with are my own. I dehydrate all my extra before they flower and go bad. I have too many and I don’t want them to go to waste. Most people don’t have access to fresh herbs so I try to post dry herbs so they get the right measurements. I agree the fresh adds a whole lot more flavor for sure and that is great advice!

  1. Diane – First off, thank you for the shout out for my blog – I appreciate it. I am so glad I told you about this recipe and even gladder the family loved it. It sure looks delicious and is like a trip down memory lane for me. Even though it is 11:00 p.m., if I had a dish of this spaghetti in front of me, I’d dig in – even at this late hour! I say Brava to the cook for her Spaghetti Bravissimo!

  2. That sounds sooooo good! But there are only 2 of us and only 1 of the 2 of us loooooves spaghetti. The other 1 merely tolerates it. SO, I wonder how I can cut this recipe down. 3 quarts of water is 12 cups so half recipe would be 1.5 quarts, aka 6 cups of water and then 1 pkg of the soup mix instead of 2. BUT I wouldn’t want to cut down the meat sauce part of the recipe, would I? Hmm…I guess I will try the 1/2 recipe spaghetti with the full recipe sauce and see what happens!

    • 1-1/2 quarts water (6 cups), 1 envelope onion soup, 8 oz. spaghetti, 1# ground beef, 6 oz. tomato paste, 8 oz. tomato sauce, 2 tsp. dried parsley,1/2 tsp dried oregano and 1/4 tsp dried basil. Then follow the same directions. I’m not a huge lover of ground beef so I only used one pound with my recipe, I should have used two. Enjoy!!!
