Spaghetti my Grandma's way

The spaghetti sauce I grew up on is by no means traditional.  It has a few very strange ingredients and is made with mostly packaged products, no fresh tomatoes or basil here.  Still, I love it, and I make it occasionally.  Give this a try, but don't expect anything like a traditional marinara.  Oh, and since we're not being traditional here, the pasta is always served on the side and mixed in at the table.

Grandma Mary's Spaghetti Sauce

1 lb. ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup onion
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can tomato soup
6oz can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
4 oz can mushrooms pieces, drained
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf

Cook hamburger with onion and garlic until brown.  Drain fat.  Mix 1/2 cup water and 6oz can of tomato paste in small bowl.  Add soups, tomato paste, mushrooms, Worcestershire, oregano, salt and bay leaf to hamburger.  Stir together.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Enjoy!
