See I told you I was on a casserole kick! I can't believe in all of my years in the kitchen I've never whipped up a spaghetti casserole! It super easy! I love the way the noodles hold together when you cut into the casserole. It's spaghetti....only better. ;)
I've been using Eat at Home's wonderful weekly menu plans the past couple of weeks and baked spaghetti was on the list. I changed things around a bit for my casserole. I replace the ground beef with ground turkey, switched the spaghetti out for whole grain thin spaghetti, I used a large can of pasta sauce instead of a mixture of tomato and pasta sauces. I also used a little grated parmesan along with the mozzerella.
This was such a hit at my house! Hope you'll give it a try soon.
