Grandma's Baked Spaghetti

Amanda Michelle


This is my grandma's recipe, but it is too delicious to keep to myself. I used to request it for my birthday dinner every year growing up. Cozy dish for cool weather. Hope you enjoy!

Note: For the cheese I go to the deli and have them cut me a hunk of cheese as close to 1 lb as possible. Better to go over than under:)
