Baked Spaghetti is the vintage recipe that will never get old. With just 5 on-hand ingredients turn cooked spaghetti (you can even use leftover) into a saucy, cheesy, meaty casserole that's perfect for a weekday dinner. This Baked Spaghetti recipe is the easiest to make, since the meat is already in the sauce! And you can customize just by changing the sauce- any of the Prego meat sauces will work and taste amazing! Want a sausage and pepper spin? Try Sweet Sausage & Pepper! Rather have meatballs? Choose Mini Meatball! Preheat the oven while the spaghetti cooks, then add the sauce, ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and bake!

    I always have leftovers since it is just my husband and me, so I was looking for something different to do with my leftover homemade sauce/gravy. I happened upon this recipe and we liked it so much I have decided to make it for the family reunion this year. I am sure it will be a big hit!!

  • Excellent!

    My whole family loved this recipe! I used a whole pound of noodles instead of half and as always added more spices to the sauce but its was wonderful!
