There are many variations of this baked spaghetti dish. Looking a perfect dish for company especially when you are not quite sure when they will be arriving? Baked spaghetti can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven for a quick heating.  It was a big hit especially for the two twelve year old boys visiting. They even asked for it for lunch the next day!Baked Spaghetti

Looks Delicious; only wish hubby was a fan of spaghetti. I may have to use a different pasta (something like the small; skinny egg noodles or something) for this soon to make dish.
Thank you and have a wonderful and enjoyable weekend.

In your recipe instructions you didn’t mention how long to bake it for but after reading down further I noticed you did mention the baking time. Thank you

I’m sure this recipe would be equally as delicious with another form of pasta. You’ll have to let me know!
