Tender spaghetti combined with creamy ricotta and sour cream in a mouthwatering meat sauce make up this delicious baked spaghetti casserole, and is by far one of the most requested dinner recipes in this house. It's filling, super easy to throw together for a quick weeknight meal and very budget-friendly.
Baked Spaghetti Casserole
About This Casserole
Much like any casserole, this dish is perfect for church suppers or potlucks. It's easy to prepare, affordable and a little goes a long way (his recipe makes about 6-8 servings). I usually serve it with a green salad and garlic bread on the side.
Feel free to play with this recipe and make it your own. For example, you can omit the meat and add diced peppers and sliced mushrooms to the onions for a more vegetarian version. Prefer things a little spicier? Substitute the ground beef or turkey with crumbled hot Italian sausage and add crushed red pepper to the sauce.
