Tasty Thursday {Grannie's Spaghetti}

This is by far my favorite Spaghetti recipe. My Grannie made this recipe all the time. She was the best cook around. If you wanted comfort food, her house was the place to be. I remember as a kid watching her in her {hot} kitchen cook. I truly believe that I got my cooking "skills" from her and my Dad who got his skills from her.
She passed away in 2004 and all of us miss her dearly. I was blessed with receiving all her cook books and recipes, even some of her frying pans {that still smell like her house}. This Spaghetti recipe is the one I will forever treasure. When I look at it {which I don't have to when cooking...I know it by hear} I can see her cooking in her apron and I can still smell her...oh how I miss her.
Here's a picture of the recipe
I love that it has grease stains on it and the edges of the paper are frayed. It screams Grannie.

Grannies Spaghetti {she titled it Italian Spaghetti}
1-Onion {Chopped}

1/2 tsp Chili Powder

1 {10 1/2oz} can of Cream of Mushroom
1 {10 1/2oz} can of Tomato Soup
1 {8oz} package of Long Spaghetti Noodles
1/2 C grated Parmesan Cheese

Cook onion in oil till golden, add meat and seasonings, brown lightly. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add soups, and simmer for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, cook noodles in boiling water till tender. Drain and rinse noodles with hot water.
I like to put shredded cheddar cheese over my spaghetti pile on my plate. Oh so good!

So Robin did you get to make this spaghetti? If so how did it turn out?
