Make It Monday


I haven't done Make It Monday in a while so I thought I'd share a tasty recipe with you today! I've had lots of friends having babies lately & this recipe has been a great one to take. It's Baked Spaghetti. I usually serve w/ salad or green beans & bread. It's yumo!!

Baked Spaghetti

Reynolds Wrap® Release® Non-Stick Foil (I also use regular foil & spray the side of it that will be touching the spaghetti w/ non-stick spray. Works just as good!)


package (8 oz.) spaghetti, cooked and drained


tablespoons butter OR margarine


cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided


container (24 oz.) ricotta cheese OR cottage cheese(I use ricotta)


pound ground beef


jar (about 28 oz.) chunky garden-style pasta sauce


package (8 oz.) shredded Mozzarella cheese

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with Reynolds Wrap Release Non-Stick Foil with non-stick side toward food. (Or just spray the pan w/ non-stick spray!)

COMBINE hot cooked spaghetti with butter; stir until butter melts and coats spaghetti. Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; stir to coat. Arrange spaghetti in an even layer in foil-lined pan. Spread ricotta cheese over spaghetti. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Brown ground beef, drain; add pasta sauce and heat until bubbly. Spoon over cheeses. Top with Mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese.

COVER with non-stick foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil cover and continue baking 15 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.


If you have a Back To School tradition you'd like to share, please email me! I'm working on this post now & looking for some more great ideas!
