This is one of my all-time favorites. It is fantastic to take to potlucks or to a friend who is under the weather. I like eating it the next day as a cold pasta dish. Can't go wrong with this one!

Baked spaghetti is a super easy and tasty dinner. Filled with spaghetti, it is a hearty dish. The tomato and meat add most of the flavor, while the cheeses add a bit of savoriness. Adding the creamed soup gives the casserole the right amount of creaminess. This dish comes together quickly, so it's the perfect weeknight meal.
