My family loves all types of Italian foods. Admittedly, we are all carb-o-holics. This is why my diet has been so hard to stick to. (Although, I did lose 5.2 lbs the first week!)
I make this meal on occasion when I need to whip something up quick and hearty. You can even use store bought sauce (not something I usually buy, but it was on sale and I had coupons, so I couldn’t pass it up!)
This recipe is also nice because it is so versatile and can be made vegetarian simply by omitting a meat.
To make Baked Spaghetti, you will need:
1 1/2 jars of pasta sauce, your flavor choice
2 sleeves of spaghetti noodles, cooked
1 small tub of ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
Meat of your choice, cooked (I used shredded chicken)
To make Baked Spaghetti:
Start by mixing spaghetti noodles with pasta sauce and eggs. I used my hands or tongs to mix these two well. You would also add your meat if you desire at this point.
Next, add your ricotta cheese and incorporate well.
Then, Add shredded Parmesan to the mix.
Cover with Mozzarella and aluminum foil. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until piping hot at 350 degrees.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes. This helps set it so it is more solid. Enjoy!
