Cheesy Spaghetti Bake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by *Parsley*

This is one of my mom's recipes that my brother and I LOVED. Nothing too fancy. It's a simple kid-pleaser that adults like too. I haven't made this in ages, but she still makes it for my dad (and my single brother makes sure he stops by that night). ;)

My husband really liked this dish, he said he could eat it every day! I liked it, I thought it needed more spices, so next time I think I'll add some garlic and a touch of red pepper flakes. I would definitely make this exact recipe for my nieces though. It is very kid friendly. I used ground white turkey breast, skim evaporated milk, reduced fat parm. cheese and reduced fat mozzarella cheese to reduce some of the calories/fat.
