Homemade Spaghetti Bake – A Family Recipe

It is not always about the food we eat, it is more about the time shared over a good meal. This dinner party recipe can be prepared in advanced and placed in the oven 20 minutes before your guests arrive. This will provide you with more time to spend with your guests without the worry of cleaning up a mess or rushing to prepare your meal.

Follow the steps in the recipe below to layer your ingredients before adding to the oven. If you are preparing your dish before your guests arrive, cover your baking dish with foil and place in the refrigerator until ready to bake.

Bake until the spaghetti is heated all the way thru and your cheese is melted.

This meatless spaghetti bake can be easily altered to include ground beef, turkey or sausage. Simply add the cooked meat of your choice to your spaghetti sauce.
