Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti- this hearty baked pasta dish is a family favorite! The spaghetti is layered with a meaty sauce, lots of cheese, and baked until bubbly. Don’t forget the garlic bread! Pasta is on our dinner menu almost every single week. We are always mixing it up, but we have our favorites. My boys love Spaghetti and Meatballs, what kid doesn’t? They also love Baked Spaghetti, especially when garlic bread is served on the side. It is a regular dinner at our house!

This baked spaghetti recipe is similar to lasagna, but it comes together in a lot less time. Spaghetti noodles are layered with hearty meat sauce, a creamy ricotta mixture, and lots of mozzarella cheese. Bake until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

This is such a cozy and comforting recipe. It makes a great weeknight meal or is a good dinner to serve guests when you are entertaining.

It is also a good meal to take to loved ones who are grieving or just had a baby. It’s a classic dinner that everyone loves and it reheats well too. Leftovers are the best!
