Southwestern Baked Spaghetti

Recipe by Kim D.

This is an easy, yet very tasty spaghetti casserole, which reminds me of the spaghetti they used to serve us in elementary school. I loved their spaghetti! I normally only brought my lunch, but not on spaghetti day!

I have been making this for a year and my whole family loves it-kids included! The added spices make this dish quite a few cuts above most baked spaghetti recipes. The only change I make regulary is to double the tomato sauce, oregano and garlic. (We like it more saucy than the original recipe comes out.) The addition of kidney beans is fantastic.
