    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is a lasagna alternative I found in an old issue of "Canadian Living". It was from an article spotlighting personal chefs and make-ahead dishes. Bake in two 9x9-inch dishes or one very large casserole. CHEF NOTE: After making this several times, I prefer to make the "topping" more cheesy. I reduce flour to 1/4 cup and reduce milk to 2 cups, increasing cheese to a generous 1 cups mozzarella cheese with another half cup or more sprinkled over top.

      Made this in two casserole dishes (one to keep and one to share). Warning--8x8 is too small! It was spilling out over the edge when it was baking. I'd use at least 10x10 for 2 or a VERY large casserole dish for one. ...and OMG absolutely delicious!

      This rating scale is not high enough. I am lucky enough to personally know the chef. She is awesome. I see the recipe, but it must be the chef. I am willing to camp out in front of the house (for at least 2 nights)if I can have some more of the Spaghetti Bake. You just don't know. This is some good stuff. I am a protein kind of gut, but I am willing to give it up for this. 10 stars is my rating, but I guess we'll have to go with 5 for now. Cudos to the chef!!!

      This was absolutely delicious! Although you would have to be a magician to make it fit into a 9x13 pan. I went exactly by the recipe and had to use a deep lasagna/roaster pan and it was filled to the top! There's just me & my husband in the household & we had plenty to spare, so he took it to work for his buddies to try out. There were seven who dug into it and they loved it! In fact, one wanted the recipe! This would make a great potluck dish for any big gathering.
