    Barenaked Chef's Note:

    This recipe is one of the better Baked Spaghetti's I've tried. I think you could easily shortcut with prepared sauce and such, but you must use angel hair pasta and Jack cheese. It makes this! **edited to add: I have tried to increase pasta per reviews, but this does not work! You come out with a dry pasta! Please make just as written and rate on the recipe as written!

      I've made this baked spaghetti at least ten times now, and it's a SMASH HIT every single time! This is the way spaghetti should taste, in my humble opinion.

      Okay, first things first, I have two babies under the age of 2 years old, so I refuse to take the precious time to make that lovely-sounding sauce. (It really does sound lovely, but honestly! Too time-consuming! I digress....) I simply bought two 24oz containers of Ragu onion & garlic spaghetti sauce, and use about 1 1/2 jars of it.

      Also, I used turkey instead of ground beef. When browning it, I seasoned it in the pan with Lawry's seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder, sage, Italian seasoning, & black pepper. Then I add the sauce to it, and voila! It smells so delightful, I must say. Additionally, I use a little more cheese than required, since the family and I are cheese lovers. But overall, even with my little tweaks, this dish is oh-so-tasty! Even my 20 month old who hates pasta will eat this! :)

      Wonderful! Have been making this for awhile and forgot to review it. I also used a whole pound of pasta as some other reviewers did. I just don't think it would have been a full pan with 8 ozs. I added extra tomatoes and sauce to up the sauce quantity also. Just personal preference.

      Wonderful! I've been looking for a baked spaghetti recipe like moms (because she never wrote hers down) and this is it! The first time I used 8oz. of angelhair pasta but ever since I use regular spaghetti as I prefer it, and 14oz. box instead of 8oz. Absolutely love this!
