Baked spaghetti casseroles are a favorite in our house, and this is our Favorite Baked Spaghetti recipe. SO cheesy and delicious!!! This a great make-ahead meal. Since there are only two of us, I usually split the casserole between two 9x9-inch foil pans. I bake one and freeze one for later. LOVE easy freezer meals!

I used Italian sausage in this Favorite Baked Spaghetti casserole, because it is my favorite. If you don't like sausage, go ahead and swap it out with beef. Just add some Italian seasoning to the beef to give it more flavor.

I like to use Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Marinara in this Favorite Baked Spaghetti casserole. It is the one with the green label. It tastes great! If you don't have a Trader Joe's close by, I also love Rao's and La Famiglia Delgrosso brand jarred sauces. I find both of those at Walmart, Target and Publix. I also linked to them in the recipe.

  4. If you are freezing, will you need to thaw before baking or can you bake from frozen?

    1. I thaw it before baking. You will need to add more time if baking frozen
