Fran's Story

This recipe takes me back to the 1970's, when adding a little extra to a meal meant adding pepperoni instead of an upscale wine.

In my part of West Virginia, we called this "Spaghetti Pizza." I hadn't thought of it for YEARS, since my 3 kids emptied the nest, until one of my favorite cooking blogs, Southern Bite, posted a Baked Spaghetti recipe. Their recipe is quite a bit different, and sounds delicious, but I thought I'd add this one to my family collection. The next generation can't afford the upscale wine yet. =^..^=


8 oz
spaghetti or any pasta, uncooked
About 3 c
of spaghetti sauce, jar or homemade, with or without meat
About 6 oz
mozzarella cheese, shredded
pepperoni or other pizza toppings

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mist the inside of a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain.
Mix cooked pasta with spaghetti sauce.
Pour pasta into the prepared baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese & pepperoni or other pizza toppings.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted & bubbly.
Serve hot with a tossed green salad and garlic bread.

This looks like a great way to use let over spaghetti and sauce. I could have regular spaghetti one night and this another night (maybe in a pie plate instead of a 9x13 since there are only 2 of us.) GREAT IDEA!!!
