Don Meredith's Casserole

Usually it's the picture or ingredients in a recipe that draw me in. With this one it was the name, Don Meredith Casserole. I remember Dandy Don as the colorful football commentator in the 70's.

If you're looking for a recipe that puts a new twist on spaghetti, give this one a try. It's easy to put together and makes a great weeknight supper.
