Baked Spaghetti

Why make baked spaghetti instead of regular ol’ spaghetti with meat sauce? It’s all about that melty layer of cheese on top! If you prefer, slice some fresh mozzarella on top instead.

INGREDIENTS

  • Cooking spray
  • 16 oz. spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 (28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 c. basil, chopped
  • 1 c. shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a medium baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook spaghetti according to package directions until al dente, drain, and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add ground beef, season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, and cook until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Drain fat in a bowl lined with paper towels and return to pan. Pour in crushed tomatoes and basil and simmer until slightly reduced, menimpotency.com. Season with more salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Toss with spaghetti, then transfer to baking dish and top with mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake until cheese is melted and pasta is warmed through, about 20 minutes.
