Grandma's Norwegian Spaghetti

Ok, so before you look at the picture and decide it doesn't look delicious, please forgive my photo taking skills, or lack thereof. It's hard to photograph a mainly white-ish food in a white bowl under fluorescent light at night, ok? So this is the best I could do…

But anyways, this is Grandma Renae's Norwegian Spaghetti recipe. Her mother came to America from Norway, and I'm not sure if this recipe came with her or if she created it in a Norwegian state of mind during a cold Michigan winter… However it came to be, it's an old family recipe that's graced our table more than once, in memory of our sweet grandma. It's warm, cheesy, ham(my?), and I can't really explain the flavor, but it's good, ok? Don't knock it until you try it.
