Pasta casseroles, like a baked penne with cheese or a spaghetti casserole, are always welcome at work or as the main draw for any crowd!

Ingredients / Variations

    • PASTASpaghetti is my choice here, but any long pasta will do. Note that it will bake more in the oven, so be sure to cook it al dente (firm when biting).
    • SAUCE Make your own homemade marinara or use store bought to keep this extra quick!
    • MEATBALLSThis is a place that I almost always use at home. You can prepare meatballs in advance and freeze them, the taste is much better than the one bought in the store.
    • VEGETABLES You can add vegetables to the sauce in this recipe if you want! Zucchini, peppers and mushrooms are excellent options.
    • CHEESE Cheese is added to the spaghetti and also to the top for a great flavor! Crush it yourself for best results, pre-grinding has additives to prevent it from clumping and not melting too.

How to Make Baked Spaghetti Pasta

Any decent meatball casserole requires delicious meatballs! If you don't want to make them by hand, replace them with thawed / cooked precooked meatballs for simplicity!

  1. Prepare the meatballs. Try the spicy meatballs of Italian sausage or even the turkey meatballs!
  2. Mix the pasta and cheeses (according to the recipe below) and place them in the bottom of a 9 × 13 plate.
  3. Top with meatballs and sauce and bake until bubbly and golden.

Serve with a slice of garlic bread to soak up every last drop of that sauce!

TIP:Bake the meatballs in the 9×13 pan you will use for the saucepan … one less dish to wash!
