Liz’s World Famous Spaghetti
Contributed by Liz


3 – pkgs. (12 oz or 16 oz) ground MILD sausage
1 – 1 lb. box of spaghetti
1 - #2 can of peeled tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
1 Bay leaf
Onion Salt
1 – 1 lb. or bigger pkg. (if you want more) of grated or sliced mozzarella cheese


Thoroughly cook sausage. To remove grease place about three layers of paper toweling in oblong baking pan. Spoon sausage with a slotted spoon onto toweling. To get any extra grease out, pat sausage with more paper towels on top..

In a large pan, bring to boil enough water and about a teaspoon of salt. Wait for a good rolling boil before putting in the spaghetti. TO TEST FOR DONENESS, take a piece of spaghetti and throw it against the wall. If it sticks, it’s done.

While water is heating, place in another large pan, the canned tomatoes and their liquid, the tomato paste, and the tomato sauce. Add the seasonings to taste.

Add the well-drained sausage. Bring to a light boil and then simmer. To keep from burning, shut off heat or remove to another burner.

Drain spaghetti in a colander. In a large (and I mean large) baking pan, make a layer of spaghetti. Spoon over it, a layer of the sauce. Make another layer of spaghetti and of sauce. And then another layer of spaghetti and sauce. Three double layers with sauce on top.

Sprinkle grated cheese or slices of cheese over entire pan. In a 325 oven allow cheese to get a little runny. ABOUT TWO MINUTES.
