Loaded Spaghetti Bake Recipe
“Make this versatile recipe your own, everyone loves it! It's also great made with leftover chicken from the previous night's dinner. You might prefer another hard cheese for the Parmesan…or just go with the cheddar and cornflake crumbs.” Marian Pappas - Lake Stevens, Washington
