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

"I have been making this recipe for many many years. I take it to potlucks, reunions, funerals, Christmas parties - you name it! It always gets rave reviews. I just made this for a church function but added pepperoni to it and everyone loved it."

"One of my very favorite recipes. Doesn't taste like spaghetti - when you say "spaghetti" people usually turn their nose up but not after they taste this dish. I leave out the olives"

"Made this for a work function and it was an odd recipe, but it was quite delicious. It was a hearty meal to feed a bunch of hungry guys. At first we were nervous when it was spaghetti with cream of mushroom soup, but the combo actually made a delicious topping."

"My husband and I really enjoyed this baked spaghetti. My only change I made was to leave out the olives because we aren't fans of them. Next time, to appeal more to the kids I will likely used crushed tomatoes instead of diced because they turned their noses up at the "tomato chunks", and be sure to dice up the peppers smaller than I did."

"This is the best baked spaghetti! It's great for the family and also perfect for making for others because everyone loves it. Something about it tastes better every time. We like it as the recipe is, but it's also good to mix sausage with the ground beef for a nice twist. Thanks so much for this favorite recipe!"
