Winner's Spaghetti Casserole

Winner's Spaghetti Casserole created by Kimberley B.

This fast, easy recipe is a real family pleaser! I have used this recipe for many years as my good old stand-by for potlucks and tailgate parties. I have also baked this recipe in two smaller pans, keeping one for my family and bringing the other over to a new mother or neighbor as a welcome gift. This is my version of one I found in a community cookbook called "Enough to Feed an Army." (NOTE: Updated the amount of the spaghetti, I also now use a smaller box of pasta in this, even though the original called for a 1 pound box)

  • Heat over low heat, covered, until warmed through, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
  • Add onions and peppers to the butter and saute until just lightly browned.
  • Cut up cream cheese into small chunks and add to the onion mixture; stir until melted and well combined.
  • Pour half of the meat sauce over the cooked spaghetti.
  • Pour all of the cream cheese sauce over the first layer of meat sauce, using a spatula to spread evenly.
  • Pour remaining meat sauce over the cream cheese layer, again using a spatula to spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese over the top to taste.
  • Cover with foil and bake for about 25 minutes or warm and bubbly.
  • Remove cover and bake 5 minutes more.
  • This can be prepared ahead, refrigerated, and not baked until the following day, if desired (if you do, allow extra baking time).

    Received a similar recipe from a friend years ago that called for a package of Kraft Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, which is no longer available. Happy to see this revised recipe using spaghetti sauce. One thing my friend's recipe added is french fried onions, which I think adds so much flavor and texture. After baking for 25 minutes, add the french fried onions and bake for an additional 5 minutes. This has been one of my family's favorites for years.

    Wonderful kid-friendly meal. Assembled ahead of time using 10 oz spaghetti and baked at dinnertime. Perfect for a busy weeknight. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I have made this many times but never reviewed. I have to say this is one of our favourite dishes, it is so easy to put together and if there is leftovers they are wonderful. I do add a little more spaghetti sauce, we like things with lots of sauce!
