Baked Spaghetti Casserole with Cheese

This baked spaghetti casserole recipe is a family vegetarian recipe originally made by my grandma. It is the perfect comfort food for you and your family! 

Hey, foodies! I present you today my grandma’s baked spaghetti casserole recipe! This baked spaghetti casserole with cheese recipe may not be diet-friendly, but still, it’s a comfort food you can indulge yourself with once in a while.

My grandma recently gave up trying to feed me meat, but there’s a really long way to go until she’ll understand that I try to avoid eating dairy products too. She made this awesome baked spaghetti casserole last weekend and I liked it so much that I asked her for the recipe. Yes, it was that good.

I used feta cheese for this baked spaghetti casserole, but you can use other types of cheese as well. I think it would be really awesome to turn this into a Quattro Formaggi pasta casserole, don’t you think?!

This is a really delicious recipe. You’ll have a hard time trying to resist eating all of it! If you like this casserole recipe, you should also try my zucchini and cheese casserole.

This is the first time that I try baking spaghetti and I must say - I didn't expect it to be so good!

Thanks, Ruxandra!

eu nu am cine stie ce ustensile in bucatarie dar cumpar

Nici eu nu am cine stie ce aparatura, doar lucruri de baza. Daca ai un blender te descurci sa faci cam orice. Pentru buget restrans recomand un blender vertical cu care poti face si supe crema mult mai usor. Ideal e sa ai un robot de bucatarie, insa nici eu nu am avut robot o mare perioada de timp si am rezistat si fara el :) Aparatura doar ne mai usureaza munca :)

Thanks Stella! Maybe you should have let it a little bit longer in the oven. Also if you have an oven with a grill option, you can turn it on for about 10-15 minutes and it will get this lovely crust. Hope this helps!
