Quick & Easy Dinner Idea - Spaghetti Casserole

This recipe came from the grandmother of a close friend of mine.  She told me it was her "go-to" recipe when the grandkids were coming.  Grandmas always have the good stuff.

1 lb spaghetti
1/2 lb Velveeta
1 1/2 lb hamburger
2 tsp seasoning salt
1 medium onion (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
16 oz mozzarella cheese
1 large jar or 2 small jars of prepared spaghetti sauce (your choice - I like Prego Roasted Garlic & Herb)

Boil the spaghetti to al dente and drain.  Brown the hamburger with seasoning salt, onion, and garlic.  Drain.  Cut the Velveeta into cubes.  In a 9 x 13" baking dish, layer boiled spaghetti, 1/3 each of the Prego sauce, Velveeta, hamburger, and mozzarella cheese.  Repeat layering two more times.  Bake for 20 minutes at 350.

This is a dish my kids LOVED growing up.  It's gooey and cheesy - and who doesn't like spaghetti?
