The Best Baked Spaghetti – delicious spaghetti casserole! Hamburger/Sausage, spaghetti sauce, eggs, parmesan, pasta, ricotta, sour cream and mozzarella. Also makes a great freezer meal!
I love Baked Spaghetti casseroles. I made this casserole so Chicken Legs would have something to eat while I was in Europe. We ate this for dinner and I cut up the leftovers and froze it for Chicken Legs. This is SO good and super easy to make. You can make this casserole ahead of time and freeze it or refrigerate it until you are ready to serve it. This is a great dish for a crowd. It will easily serve 10-12 people. Just toss together a salad and some Garlic Roll Cupcakes for a quick and easy Italian feast!
