Cheesy Baked Spaghetti

Patti Smith


I started preparing Cheesy Baked Spaghetti after my children became burned out from regular Spaghetti. My friend from Tennessee shared this recipe with me before I had kids. I have tweaked it a little over the years and my children love it! It is great to send the next day for lunch in place of a school lunch.
