Baked Spaghetti Dinner Recipe

In this post I’ll be sharing a delicious Baked Spaghetti Dinner Recipe.

 

I love baked spaghetti! I actually prefer it to the traditional way of serving it, noodles topped with the sauce. Spaghetti is one of the most requested meals in our house so I’ll take it however it is served. Always delicious!

Making a big batch of sauce allows me to freeze it in portions for easy meals.

To make things easier, I used Pronto Pasta , so there was no need to boil the pasta in a separate pot. That just made cleanup easier too!

Ingredients

  • Diced Onion
  • Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • Ground Beef
  • 32 ounces of Store Bought Spaghetti Sauce, I used a local made mushroom marinara sauce Cannizzaro , feel free to use the sauce of your choice
  • Spaghetti Pasta, cooked
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Garlic Infused Olive Oil , if using regular olive oil add 1 tsp diced garlic
  • Shredded Italian Cheese Blend
  • Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
