This baked spaghetti is to. die. for. It will definitely go into our dinner rotation. My picky eater actually ate about 4 bites of it so that’s saying something. My husband and I stared at her in amazement while she chowed down. I like my spaghetti “saucy” so I added extra spaghetti sauce to the recipe.
The baked spaghetti was all gone by the next night. This is a must try recipe. Let me know how you like it!
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1 pound ground beef
1 large jar spaghetti sauce (24 oz) plus 1/2 cup
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup chopped onions
8 ounces cream cheese (I used low-fat)
2 tablespoons milk
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
French Fried Onions (small can)
Brown ground beef. Drain excess grease. Add spaghetti sauce to skillet and heat.
Combine onions and butter in small glass bowl. Cover and microwave 4 minutes on HIGH until soft.
Add cream cheese and milk to onions and stir well. (If cream cheese is not soft, nuke it for 20-30 seconds to make it easy to spread.)
Using a 10 x 6 dish, assemble in the following order:
Thin layer of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish.
Cream cheese/onion mixture
Parmesan Cheese (to your personal taste)
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Top with French Fried onion and continue baking 5 more minutes.
