Baked Spaghetti Recipe

Publisher Photo
Every time that I make this cheesy dish, I get requests for the recipe. It puts a different spin on spaghetti and is great for any meal. The leftovers, if there are any, also freeze well for a quick dinner later in the week. —Ruth Koberna, Brecksville, Ohio

"This has been our family's favorite spaghetti dish since it first appeared in ToH in '94 (can't believe it's been 20 years)! I misplaced the original paper recipe, so I checked it out here - thank goodness it was listed or I would be in BIG trouble with the family! It's easy to prep ahead of time and keep in the fridge till you're ready to pop it in the oven, avoiding the last minute dinner rush."

"I will try this particular recipe, but I have made one very similar and only takes 20 min on top of stove. After step 1 I add one can of beef broth with the diced tomatoes (I have used stewed also but I use my one hand blender to break up the tomatoes so they are not so chunky), no need to add water, when it comes to a boil I add uncooked bow tie pasta right into the pan (about 1 1/2 C. or so and cook for 10 min until pasta is done, then add 1/4 C grated cheese. No need to bake. I don't use cream soup or olives but every one I have made this for loves it."
