Spaghetti Bake

Karen Hambrick


I have been making this for over 20 years and have taken it to many potlucks. I always get requests for this recipe. Kids love it too!!! Just a note--if you like a stronger onion flavor use the green onions. If you don't want a stronger onion flavor use the dried chives.
