Reviews forMozzarella Baked Spaghetti
"We love this recipe! We use hot ( spicy ) Italian sausage & Spicy Sausage Prego spaghetti sauce.. We use 2 cups of mozzarella for better results. My husband prefers this over lasagna which has always being his favorite!"

"Loved this yummy recipe. It's a keeper."
"Just in case I added 3 cloves garlic, Italian spice (1 t.) and a little hot sauce. It's a winner and it will be my pot luck contribution for the next several pot lucks."
"Made a few changes to suit family. Delicious!!"
"Can this be made without eggs?"
"I made this a couple nights ago for family members and everyone loved it. They all had seconds. Only thing I added was a little garlic powder. Will definitely make again."
"Great recipe! I am on deployment and we take turns cooking for the group. I liked the recipe but had to make some changes due to local market availabilities. There is no pork products and limited beef so I ended up maked ground lamb sausage from another recipe online. I doubled the spices and added fresh garlic and onion. The meal was finished with some homemade garlic pita slices. Everyone enjoyed it so much that we are adding it to our regular meal rotation."
