We had friends over a few weeks ago. It was very spontaneous and we went back and forth trying to decide whose house we would get together at. Turns out both my friend and I were thinking of making a spaghetti dish, because that’s what we had ingredients for. I’ll have to eat her version sometime. Here’s my Baked Spaghetti recipe (actually a recipe my mom has made for years).
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 lb. ground beef
1 can Hunt’s spaghetti sauce
1 can tomato sauce, 15 oz
1 onion, diced
about 2 cups Mozzarella
generous shakes of oregano, basil, salt and pepper (optional)
8 oz spaghetti (the picture shows 16oz., but you only need 8oz)
Brown the meat with the onion. Drain the fat and rinse under hot water. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain and stir it together with the meat, sauces and extra spices. Put it into a casserole dish and top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or till hot and bubbly.
The pictures of the finished dish show a double recipe. I’m not sure what I was thinking making that much spaghetti. There were only 8 of us that night. We had spaghetti coming out our ears! We did have a great time together though.
