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, healthy meal. —Betty Rabe, Mahtomedi, Minnesota

"I fixed this for dinner last night and everyone LOVED it! My grandson said it was the best spaghetti he ever ate!! I'll be making this again. I did add some of my home grown oregano and sage to zip it up a bit. Thanks for this easy and tasty recipe!!"

"Tweaked the recipe for my large family - doubled it using 22 oz. thin spaghetti (cooked al dente) and used an 11 x 14 pan. Listened to Carrie35 about the sauce. Used 2 (24oz) jars of spaghetti sauce - 1 plain, 1 roasted tomato, garlic, and onion. WOWWWW! My family LOVED it! And that's what counts at house!!!"

"Very good! It was easy to make, we had some garlic twists with it. I think it could use some more sauce. Family favorite"
