Reviews for Rich Baked Spaghetti
"We loved, loved,loved this! The only change I made was using my home made spaghetti sauce, and a generous amount of it. The leftovers have been great, too. Next time I think I'll make several smaller casseroles and freeze, thawing a bit and adding cheese before baking, because I am cooking for two. Thank-you!"
"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"
