Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti


*1 LB spaghetti

*my Shortcut Meat Sauce or your own homemade

*3 C. shredded cheese, divided; I used a Colby Jack cheddar blend


Prepare the meat sauce.

While the sauce is simmering, cook spaghetti according to package directions, minus one minute. The pasta will continue to cook while in the sauce, so you do not want the pasta to get over done; drain.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Reserve 2 Cups of the sauce; set aside.

Toss the pasta in the sauce ( not the reserved sauce).

Spray a large baking dish with non stick spray. Spread half of the pasta in the baking dish; top with 1 1/2 C. cheese. Spread 1/2 of the reserved sauce over the cheese. Add remaining pasta mixture on top; spread the rest of the reserved sauce over the pasta and top with the rest of the cheese.

Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

*Tip* Spray the foil with non stick spray before covering to prevent the cheese from sticking to the foil.

Uncover and continue to bake for 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
