Baked Spaghetti I

Diane Taylor Recipe

By Diane Taylor LUV2COOKNBAKE2

I discovered this recipe on the Internet, but tweaked it for my taste. My family loves spaghetti and I like to find different ways to make it. My father-in-law likes a drier spaghetti with a light sauce and the rest of the family loves to see and taste the sauce. I had tried baked spaghetti a few times before, but never thought of making it myself. The next recipe Baked Spaghetti II shows my version.
