This was super easy to make and it doesn't require making a white sauce. Just mix everything up and pour it over the spaghetti and cheese in the pan. Feel free to mix up the cheeses. I think cheddar and some pimentos for a Baked Spaghetti and Pimento Cheese would be fabulous!
Baked Spaghetti & Cheese
adapted from Southern Living Homestyle Cooking
- 16 oz spaghetti, cooked and drained
- 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 3 3/4 cup milk
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.
Place half of the cooked spaghetti in the pan. Top with half of cheese. Repeat layers.
Combine flour, salt, dry mustard and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk in 1 Tbsp of milk (this will keep the lumps out). Add remaining milk and eggs, whisk until well blended. Pour over spaghetti mixture. Dot with butter and sprinkle with paprika.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until set.
