Baked Spaghetti


I love baked spaghetti! I actually prefer it to the traditional way of serving it, noodles topped with the sauce.

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


  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 32 oz Jar Sauce, I used a local made mushroom marinara sauce Cannizzaro , feel free to use the sauce of your choice
  • 1 lb Spaghetti, cooked
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic Infused Olive Oil , if using regular olive oil add 1 tsp diced garlic
  • 1 c Shredded Italian Cheese Blend
  • Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Add 2 tsp Olive Oil, I used garlic infused oil.

Add diced onions and peppers and saute until the onions begin to become translucent. 


Next add ground beef and cook until browned. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. 

After the ground beef has cooked, add the sauce.



Cover and let simmer 15 minutes.

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees while the spaghetti cooks.

Once pasta has cooked, combine with the meat sauce.

Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.

Add spaghetti and meat mixture to the casserole dish in two layers. After first layer add some of the shredded cheese. Add second layer and top with shredded cheese and sliced mozzarella. 





Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly. 

Serve with a slice of garlic cheese toast or a side salad.
