Who here loves Spaghetti?
I have loved Spaghetti since I was a little girl! In fact, it’s always been a family favorite and one that everyone in my family enjoyed. We grew up on this Spaghetti recipe, and have all introduced this to our own family’s, which means the entire crew (cousins and all) really love that recipe. Since being in Texas I have tried a few new Spaghetti recipes, some we haven’t loved and others we definitely enjoyed, and today’s recipe happens to be one of the latter. This Baked Spaghetti was very simple to make and was so delicious! It has a bit of a nip because it has Italian sausage, but if you don’t think your kids will like that, you can just use only hamburger meat. My kids thought it was a little spicy since they don’t eat a ton of sausage but they still ate it because it was so good and so cheesy!

If you are looking to venture out and try a new spaghetti recipe, I highly suggest giving this one a try. We make pasta one night a week, and for us, it’s nice to have several recipes to choose from. You better believe this one is being added to the pasta rotation ASAP!
Here is the simple recipe:

Can’t wait to make this again! I’ll probably add some Parmesan next time on top. 😉
