Reviews for Baked Spaghetti
"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."
"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."
