recipe from pauladeen.com
Another recipe success from my idol Paula. Spaghetti has always been one of my favorites to fall back on when dinner ideas escape me. I think it was one of the first dishes I learned to make on my own way back in the day. I haven't really done any experimenting with a new recipe as I love my own as it is. I usually make my own meatballs too.
Since Paula hasn't disappointed me yet, I tried this from her website. I have not made baked spaghetti before but I can guarantee I will be making it again. Delish! Super easy too, although with something this good, you could never tell.
1 lb. browned and seasoned beef
3/4 lb. spaghetti, cooked
1 jar (approx. 15 oz.) of your favorite pasta sauce (I used Preggo Tomato and Basil)
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown and season beef. Drain
Prepare spaghetti according to package directions.
In a large saucepan, simmer browned meat and pasta sauce together. Toss the cooked noodles into the sauce.
To assemble: Spray a casserole dish with non stick cooking spray. Spoon half of the noodle mixture into the dish. Pack it down lightly and add half of the mozzarella cheese. Add remaining noodle mixture and pack down lightly again. Top with remaining mozzarella.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
