Reviews for Baked Spaghetti
"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."
"Just made this dish, very tasty ?? I would not change a thing."
"Great recipe. I used 2 cans of 14 oz. Rotel tomatoes instead of the 28 oz can of diced tomatoes."
"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!"
"This is THE ultimate comfort food. Anything baked spaghetti is always good!!"
"gad I love everything about the looks and sound of this, can't wait for a free night"
"Loved it, but used sausage instead of gr. meat."
"My husband liked this recipe but I didn't care that much for it. But I used canned spaghetti sauce and a can of mushrooms so maybe had I made it according to the recipe it would have been better. Don't know though as I doubt I'll try it again."
"My neighbor made this for me when I was in the hospital; of course, I had to get the recipe.. I love it!! Next time I make it, I'm going to try Italian sausage instead of ground beef."
