I am always on the lookout for new side dishes. so we don’t get tired of the same old things. I came across this Baked Spaghetti and Cheese recipe in one of my old Southern Living cookbooks and decided to give it a whirl. WOW! I am so glad I found this recipe. It was delicious! Chicken Legs said this was so much better than traditional macaroni and cheese.

This is 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 or gouda would be fabulous! You can also add chicken, ham, or broccoli and turn this side into a main dish!

  1. Could you add cooked crumbled sausage or hamburger to make more of a meal… would the rest of the instructions be the same?

  2. I can't wait to try this. We worked outside of New Orleans for a couple of years and one of the ladies we ordered lunch from had this kind of spaghetti as a side with fried chicken and it was so good! I have been trying to find a recipe for it and I think I just did…thanks!

  3. My mother used to make macaroni & cheese with spaghetti when she was out of elbow macaroni. We always thought it was a treat.

  4. I was expecting to see the usual "baked spaghetti", never even thought about something like this as a side dish but it sounds great! Noted!

  5. I recently had a a similar dish at a "home cooking" style restaurant and I ate mine and most of my husbands too! I was thrilled to see your recipe only a few days later…. Grating cheese right now!!

  6. This looks soooo good! My son doesn't like mac and cheese, but I think he may like this, especially using the Monterey Jack cheese. We'll give it a try 'cause I KNOW I'm going to like it!! Thanks for sharing!
