Easy Baked Spaghetti

Tasty Tuesday

Nothing fancy about this one, but amazingly good. My mother-in-law gave me this recipe, and ever since then, it's the ONLY way I've made spaghetti. The usual way just seems too boring, now. You certainly can make adjustments to this...add veggies, meatless, whatever. You could make your own marinara, but why? The point of this recipe is to be easy and quick. And when there are jarred marinara sauces out there with all-natural ingredients, I just don't see the point!

Baked Spaghetti
serves 6-8
1 lb. ground beef or Italian sausage
1 jar Marinara (I like Barilla)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
5 cups (about 1/2 a box) cooked angel hair pasta
1 8 oz. package mozzarella, sliced
Shredded mozzarella
1 small onion, chopped fine (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Saute onions (if using), and brown the ground beef, or sausage. Combine the cooked pasta, marinara, Parmesan, and meat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Layer 1/2 of the pasta mixture in a 13 x 9 dish. Top with the sliced mozzarella.  Add remaining pasta, and sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella. Cook for 20 minutes, and let set before serving. 
Freezes well.


  1. Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it.
