It takes a little longer to make baked spaghetti, but the difference in taste, texture and richness is well worth the time. I serve this lasagna-style dish with a tossed green salad and breadsticks for a hearty, yet healthy meal.
I actually created this chicken spaghetti recipe out of desperation. My son Charlie was a picky eater when he was young, so I put together some of the things he likes. To this day, he says it's his favorite dish! —Ann Robinson, Dauphin Island, Alabama
I'm usually in the kitchen most of the day making some kind of dish for my family, neighbors or the local fire department to pass around and try. My husband is a firefighter in our town, and this casserole is a favorite there.— Krista Davis-Keith, New Castle, Indiana
This hearty casserole recipe makes two large baking dishes. The tasty layers of meat sauce, spaghetti and gooey cheese are sure to appeal to pizza-loving kids…and adults. You'll bring home empty pans when you take this to a potluck. —Janice Fredrickson, Elgin, Texas
Spaghetti squash, like zucchini, can take over a garden. This is an excellent way to put that abundance to good use. I got the original recipe at a cooking class, and I've made it many times since. It's unique and tasty.
