What’s For Dinner? Baked Spaghetti!

This is a new favorite of mine. I can’t believe I’ve never tried making this before! Not only is it easy, but it is absolutely wonderful! Especially on a cold night. Serve it with the Easy Dinner Rolls from last week and some green beans and you’ve got yourself an absolutely fabulous meal that just screams ‘Homemade Comfort!’ 😀

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz spaghetti noodles
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 lb ground beef or sausage (I like sausage)
  • 1 jar pasta sauce (your favorite kind)
  • 2-3 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 ºF. Generously grease a 9 x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cook your spaghetti noodles according to package directions until al dente.
  3. While the noodles are cooking, brown your meat and drain off any excess fat. Add the pasta sauce to the meat and stir till combined.
  4. When the noodles are done, drain and then place them back in their pan. Add the butter and allow it to melt and coat the noodles. Once melted, add 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese to the noodles and again stir to coat.
  5. Layer the noodles in the prepared pan and top with another 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese.
  6. Add the meat sauce on top of the noodles in an even layer.
  7. Top with the grated mozzarella and remaining parmesan cheese.
  8. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and return the pan to the oven to bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
  9. Allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe is for ‘With Electricity’ due to the mozzarella cheese and the meat (unless you have that meat canned).
