"This recipe was featured and prepared on our local Fox station this morning. It is on the menu at Cheddar's restaurants here in the DFW area. It is really good! This Italian dish uses spaghetti instead of lasagna noodles in a casserole-style treat that's sure to please your family. "Tender spaghetti baked with three cheeses and our Alfredo sauce, topped with our rich marinara, served with hot garlic bread.""
Serving Size: 1 (434 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"If I had 10 stars this one would rate it. Definitely a calorie splurge, but worth every single fat gram. Hey, we don't eat it everyday. I used my own spaghetti sauce and offered my guests a choice of Alfredo, traditional sauce or half and half, with everyone choosing the half and half.
I also cut back the salt a bit,just personal preference. Served 6 and had plenty leftover.
Add a healthy salad (for redemption) some garlic bread and call it supper!
Thanks so much for sharing this great pasta dish!"
"2lbs of mozzarella? I think it should be 2 cups, shredded. I substituted low-fat milk for half and half. I also put half the spaghetti mixture in the pan, then some sauce, and then the rest of the spaghetti. A yummy recipe that has lots of possibilities."
"This recipie is AMAZING!!! My whole family loved it! I cannot wait to make it again! I gave a choice of the meat sauce or Alfredo... both were delicious but when I combined the 2 in the leftovers~ It was even better! Thanks for sharing!"
"Leftovers? Don't see how that's possible!!For sauce I used 2 jars Prego chunky garden. Added 1# lean, ground burger cooked with onion, green pepper & garlic to taste. Followed the rest of recipe exactly! It's PERFECT! Even better than Cheddars! Absolutely LOVE this recipe! Can't thank you enough!!"
"Oh gosh this was so good and really worthy of more stars, I did increased the garlic and used seasoned salt in place of kosher, I used my recipe#136292, I prepared this in stages which took 2 days and then refrigerated it until baking, thank you for sharing this great recipe Tx!"
"MMMMmmmm this is so good for my family of MEN. So filling too. A few changes...I made the meat portion as directed, but subbed parmesan cheese for the romano. Also, I don't have alcohol in my house, so used 1 beef bouillon cube in place of the red wine and kept the water amount as is. The sauce portion I used cottage cheese in place of ricotta and also dried basil as I didn't have fresh. After putting the noodle/sauce on the bottom of my 9x13, I then added the meat to the top and baked covered for 45 minutes removing the foil the last 5 and adding a sprinkling of shredded cheddar. It's important (as it is with lasagna) that you let this dish set for minumum 10 minutes as stated. Longer is better actually. Very good switch-up to the traditional lasagna. Made for PRMR.~"
"I made this recipe and my husband says he now prefers this dish over regular spaghetti. It was also really liked by my in-laws. This is a keeper. This would be good with Alfredo Sauce as well. I of course always make a meat sauce using chicken for Alfredo and a beef for my red sauces. Everyone should try."
"I only have two people to feed so I reduced it greatly. Definitely something I will make again and again.. Thank you for sharing."
"I thought it had too much basil and oregano in it. I thought it was very good though."
"WONDERFUL!!! I made this for my boyfriend and his co-workers in the oil field. They absolutely LOVED it! The recipe was enough that I made a big dish for the guys and one for me and my kids. I will definitely make this again!"
"This is close, but it is not the Cheddar's recipe. But a good attempt at imitation, to be sure."
"I have been madly,deeply,hopelessly in love with Cheddar's baked spasagna for so long. This recipe is so spot on and easy that I'm falling in love all over again! It's a must make for everyone who loves a great pasta dish!!!"
"Made this today for the family. The kids even ate the noodle part with no problems. Thanks for the recipe it was awesome!!!"
"This was AWESOME! I used low fat cheeses, sour cream, and ground turkey and it was still super yummy!!!! My Mother and husband loved it too ;o)"
"This tastes exactly like the baked spasagna at cheddars! It's so good and fairly easy to make. I use prego traditional sauce as the marinara sauce and added a little extra parmesan and mozzarella. Would recommend this to anyone! Lots of left overs too..."
"Super! I cut the recipe in half because I have burned before and have unwanted leftovers but this was good and I will make again"
"This was perfect and a big hit with my company, it's definitely a keeper! I've had it several times at Cheddar's. Super easy to make; I served it like Cheddar's with the meat sauce on top with a salad, green beans, and garlic bread. It served 7 easily and still had left overs for lunch and maybe another night."
"Love this!!! I make the noodle portion as shown, then use a jar of spaghetti sauce/ground beef for the sauce. EXCELLENT!! Says it serves 6-8, but I found more like 10-12 when served with broccoli and garlic breadsticks!!"
