Cheesy Baked Spaghetti

I love a good pasta dish and this one is a family favorite. This Baked Spaghetti is layered with meat sauce and cheese. A hearty dish for a cold Sunday and it also makes a great freezer meal!

  1. My kids don't care for tomatoes, but I think fresh tomatoes add so much to pasta dishes. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.
