Regular spaghetti is delicious but it famously takes forever to make the sauce just the way you like it.
Maybe I’m an uncultured swine but I have never had a homemade spaghetti sauce that tastes better than a good canned sauce. It’s usually at the same level of tasty.
So, (and don’t get mad) did you just waste hours of your precious time making “Grandma’s Famous Spaghettis Sauce” when you could’ve popped open a jar and called it good?
There seems to be a lot of hating on canned food going around these days. It’s all about “clean” food with no preservatives. I have nothing against fresh, simply prepared food. I recently joined a produce co-op and I’m loving all the bulk fruit and veggies! But I grew up on canned food.
If it tastes good and it makes dinner faster and easier, I’m gonna utilize that resource.
This was a long-winded way to say that this recipe contains canned sauces so buckle up!

Creamy Spaghetti Recipe
Brown one pound of ground beef in a large pan. My family likes a lot of meat so I often will do two pounds of ground beef.
In a separate pot, while the beef is cooking, set a pot of water to boil for the noodles. Throw a pound of Angel Hair spaghetti noodles in as soon as it’s boiling and set a timer so you don’t over cook them. Stir them as you put them in so they don’t clump together. Boil for however long the package says. It’s usually around 7 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Chop up an onion and add it to the ground beef. Cook on medium high heat until the onion is translucent.
If it starts to get stuck to the bottom of the pan, just add a splash of water and scrape the bottom.
Drain your beef mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. You can also add some Italian seasoning if you like at this point.
Stir in two cans of Campbell’s Tomato Soup and two cans of Campbell’s Mushroom Soup.
Don’t add water or try to make it into soup first! Just add the cans directly into the pan and mix.
Dump the cooked noodles into the sauce and mix.
Serve with grated parmesan cheese. Or you can use grated cotija if you’re not a fan of parmesan. Add some salad or green beans and you’ve got a meal!
Things You Might Need
Pot for noodles if you have a smaller pot, just break the noodles in half as you put them into the pot.
Jessica’s Cooking Tips
For more meal prep, cook five pounds of ground beef and season. Then scoop three or four pounds of the beef into freezer bags for fast meals later. You can even cook 4 chopped onions with the beef and have everything ready to go for faster spaghetti next time.
This makes a nice big pot of creamy spaghetti. I recommend making the whole pot even if it’s only for one or two people. This recipe is even more tasty the next day and it freezes really well. So eat your fill and portion the rest into freezer bags for meals later in the week or whenever.
Here’s a quick meal for leftovers. Make some toast. Microwave a teaspoon of minced garlic with 4 tablespoon of butter. Spoon the butter mixture over the toast for some quick garlic bread. Throw on some cheddar cheese and hot, leftover spaghetti for some delightful creamy spaghetti sandwiches. It is the ultimate, soul-healing, comfort food. You’re welcome.
This is a great one to bring to a friend or neighbor because it makes a lot and it stores well. Share the love and make a meal for someone else too.
