How to Make Baked Spaghetti

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350
  • 2Remove sausage from casings and brown in a large pot, break apart sausage, as it cooks, into bite size chunks.
  • 3While sausage is cooking, cook your pasta according to package directions for al dente, drain and set aside.
  • 4After sausage has browned add all the tomatoes and mushrooms into the pot with the sausage. Allow the (sauce) to simmer for about 20 mins, longer if you like.
  • 5In a 2qt. baking dish, place half the pasta and sprinkle a handful of mozzerella over top, then add remaining pasta. Add the sausage (sauce) over the pasta, making sure to get every drop of it in there.
  • 6The broth from the sausage tomatoes will cook into the pasta and finish up it's cooking time, so be sure and get all the liguid into the dish ;p.
  • 7Add the remaining cheese over top of sausage and cook (covered) for 30 mins. Remove cover and cook an additional 10 mins., or until cheese is nicely browned.
  • 8This recipes makes more than my family of four can eat in one setting, but the leftovers are much better the next day! Also, it freezes very well, I don't add the cheese until I'm ready to cook if frozen.
  • 9Enjoy!!! ...and Mangia!!
