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. Pour into a large baking
dish, or use 2 smaller ones. Either cook now or cover and refrigerate for several hours,
and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees, longer if chilled.
Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
If your local supermarket doesn't carry Rotel, throw in another can
and chop up some hot peppers to suit your taste, or add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
Great dish for a buffet.
