This recipe is so easy to adapt to your family’s preferences. We’ve made it using meatballs (sliced in half and placed over the pasta before adding the sauce). Many times we leave out the sausage and use only ground beef; but, our absolute favorite way to make it is to add sliced New Orleans sausage (by Johnsonville). If you like green pepper, you can saute that in with the onion and meat or add some sliced, cooked mushrooms to the sauce before pouring it over the cooked spaghetti. The possibilities are almost unlimited. You can make it to suit your own family, and it will become your very own Famous Baked Spaghetti!


This recipe also freezes very well. Simply assemble the dish and let it cool, but leave off the cheese and don’t bake it. Cover and freeze. To bake, let it sit overnight in the refrigerator, so it can partially thaw. Take it out of the refrigerator about 30 to 45 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Bake for about 20 minutes or until it’s hot; remove from oven and sprinkle with grated Mozzarella cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the internal temperature has reached 165˚ F. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
