Take a look at this delicious Cheesy Baked Spaghetti recipe. It's simple and great to prepare ahead of time. Find out how to make this now!
I can't even begin to tell you how delicious this cheesy baked spaghetti was for dinner tonight!
Here's just a hint: I don't much like spaghetti (at all, really. . . ), but I'm pretty sure I could eat the entire. pan. all. by. my. self. My hubby even proclaimed it “good-enough-to-take-to-a-pot-luck”. (Which apparently means really, really, good at our house.)
Now, if you're on a diet, do yourself a favor and don't even think about making this recipe. (I know – I hate that too, but no matter how solid your will power is you won't be able to stop at one serving ~ you just won't!)
If you're making supper for a new mom or someone who's been a bit under the weather, this is just the perfect make-and-take recipe. You can even make it ahead of time (minus the French's onions), pop it in the freezer, and then bake when you're ready to eat. So, try it out and let me know what you think!
