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."
