More About This Recipe
  • Just when you thought you couldn’t love your 13x9 pan any more than you already do, you found out it could make one of your favorite dishes for you! Yes, it’s true—spaghetti can be cooked in the oven, over the stove and in your slow cooker, but while those are all tried-and-true methods, what we love about baked spaghetti recipes is that you can prep the dish the night before and then it’s ready to pop in the oven around dinner time! If you want to make it ahead of time, follow all of the steps except for putting it in the oven. Once your ingredients are in your casserole dish, cover the dish with foil or a tight-fitting lid and then keep it in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to make it, preheat your oven and throw it in. See? There are endless ways to make spaghetti.
