This comforting baked spaghetti recipe is a delicious dinner that can be prepared ahead of time for an easy weeknight dinner or for a potluck dinner. Your family will request this favorite over and over again.
If you are looking to stock your freezer with meals, you can easily prepare this and freezer for a later date. I like to use aluminum pans and store in the freezer until the night before we want to make it. An easy way to start stocking your freezer is to make double of your favorite meals and freeze one.
I like to use fresh Parmesan cheese, though you can use grated Parmesan cheese if you want. I can buy a block at ALDI for around $4 and quickly crumble it with my Ninja Kitchen Prep. Sprinkle a little on top before baking to add even more flavor!
