Two-Cheese Spaghetti Bake

Janet Knorr GOLDEN, ILLINOIS My kids and grandkids love this cheesy pasta dish. I prepare it at least once a month, but it’s especially good during cooler months.

    Hubby loved this and declared it a keeper. My half had no meat (my preference), and I thought it was too cheesy. Maybe if I had eaten it as written I would have liked it better
