Spaghetti Casserole

I have made this recipe since the early 1990’s. Don’t be fooled, it is not just baked spaghetti. If you really want a twist from regular spaghetti give this a try. I don’t make mine like other typical Spaghetti Casserole recipes.

    • Thanks Linda! I had a huge bowl left over and couldn’t wait to have some for lunch today. Low and behold my husband and 4 year old grandson ate almost all of it! I was left about a cup! My husband said my grandson ate 2 bowls at 10:30 am!
