Reviews for Loaded Spaghetti Bake
"Thumbs up!!!! My family loved it!!!"
"Very rich but oh so good!"
"Perfect recipe! Excellent! Quite the keeper!"
"Very filling. I froze the uneaten half of the recipe for another dinner. I will make this again, but will make sure the noodles are not quite as done."
"This is soooooo good. My mom even liked it a lot. I usually know when she likes a dish because she will finish her plate, if she doesn't like it then she will usually eat just half of the dish. Next time I might try adding sauted spinach as well. This will definitely go into my recipe box. I really like the creamy smooth taste to the dish."
"I made this last night. Wonderful!!! I used jarred alfredo sauce instead of refrigerated because ofwhat was on hand. I will be making this again!"
"I have made this recipe alot. It is one of my favotite spaghetti dishes."

"I was looking for another way to make spaghetti and I am soooo glad I found this recipe....It is delicious!!!!"
"Best baked spaghetti recipe I've ever made! I wasn't sure about the alfredo sauce, but it turned out amazing! Fortunately we had people over, otherwise it would have made WAY too much for 2 people! Do you think this can be frozen?"
"I was looking for something to make for dinner my husband being the meat eater he is said he wanted something with a lot of meat and alfredo sauce... I wanted spaghetti... Then I found this recipe. I will admit it sounded like an odd combination, but to my surprise it is VERY good. Thanks for the idea! It was a big hit!"
"I used a jar of alfredo sauce (the whole jar)and it was delicious. Also, leave off the cornflake crumbs, they don't really add anything to the recipe.lbarber"
"I loved this. I have had baked spaghetti before, but this was even better.
"My wife loved this. I made it for her with ingredients we had on hand. It's her favorite casserole. I loved it two. I used homemade canned spagetti sauce we put up last summer."
