Servings: 10


  • 1 lb ground beef, browned and seasoned (Italian sausage can be substituted)
  • 3/4 lb spaghetti, cooked
  • 1 jar (approximately 15 oz) pasta sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 350 °F.

In a large sauce pan, simmer meat and tomato sauce together. Toss the cooked noodles in the sauce.

To Assemble: Spray a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon half of the noodle mixture into the dish. Pack it down lightly and sprinkle on half of the cheese. Add the other half of the spaghetti, pack down lightly and top with the rest of the cheese. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Serve with a green salad and crusty garlic bread.
