Spaghetti Supper

Tonight we had baked spaghetti with garlic bread.

DH wanted baked spaghetti.

I’d never heard of it. It sounded kind of dry. I thought the pasta underneath might end up mushy and overcooked.

“No,” said DH, “it’s wonderful. The pasta absorbs the sauce and makes it really flavorful. I really like it.”

So, when I found Imagineannie’s meatloaf and baked spaghetti “planned over” dinners I thought I would give both recipes a try. I am glad I did. DH was right. It WAS wonderful. Plus I not only used up the meatloaf from the night before, DH and I were thrilled to be eating leftovers. 

I will definitely be making both the meatloaf and baked spaghetti again.

 You can use any spaghetti sauce for baked spaghetti. I used homemade sauce from my freezer. Here’s my recipe and method for sauce from garden tomatoes:

    Hmm… interesting, I’ve never heard of baked spaghetti either, but the recipe sounds like a good one – especially for making ahead of time and then heating up when you’re ready.

    Hi paperseed,

    The good thing about this recipe is that you have an italian meatloaf one night, and then use those leftovers for the baked spaghetti.

    It made enough for two nights of the spaghetti and the spaghetti IS great heated over.

    Thanks for trying this out!! I am so glad your husband liked it. I also envy you the homemade sauce – I made some this year, but it was for immediate consumption and was, in fact, consumed. It would make superior baked spaghetti, though.
