Baked SpaghettiThis is so good. Better than regular spaghetti. It gets slightly crispy/chewy on the edges, soft and saucy in the middle. There are many variations, some quite complex, but I like the simple one. I usually use leftover cooked noodles from the night before...
You just take cooked spaghetti--as much as you want for your family--I find about a half package cooked will fill a 9x13 baking pan--and place in a greased pan. Brown some ground beef (this is where i use organic beef--you don't need a lot) with an onion. Mix with a jar of spaghetti sauce or your own homemade. I usually use a jar plus a small can of sauce or drained tomatoes to make it saucier. Pour over the spaghetti, kinda blending it gently with a fork. You do want all the noodles to be moistened a bit. Top with shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese. Bake at 350F for about 30 min. or til hot and bubbly. (I think last time I made it it took about 40 min. Depends on your oven and whether or not the spaghetti was cold when you made it...)
This is so freaking good. Gets better the next day! Also great b/c you can add veggies or whatever to the sauce. Add a side salad or veggie, maybe some garlic bread and you're done!
Great recipes everyone, I can't wait to try these!
