"This was a quick and easy dish to prepare, put it in the fridge for one of my late work nights so hubby had it out and heating up when I got home. Does need a little more sauce and the seasonings seemed to cook out but not sure if that was because it had been refrigerated or not. I could still catch the cayenne pepper so we just added a bit of salt and pepper on top and it was very good. Just a small amount leftover from 2 of us and he ate it the next day. Will definitely make it again."
"This was just ok. Nothing special or fancy here. Basically spaghetti baked in the oven. I've had other baked spaghetti recipes that were better."
"I love this recipe but I also add additional sauce and like to use small egg noodles instead of spaghetti. It holds together better and is easier to eat. It's also nice to change the cheese to Italian Blend (pre-shredded in bag).Always a winner at potlucks!"
"I make something like this but I leave out brown sugar and add corn...yummy!"
"I have been making a very similar recipe for years but never added the brown sugar. I'll try that next time. I break my spaghetti into 4 pieces for easier eating, and I add some oregano and a little season salt. One of my favorite go to, I don't want to spend a lot of time cooking recipes."
