Baked Pizza Spaghetti

 Spaghetti is tossed with pizza sauce, meats and cheeses, for the ultimate baked pasta.

Fall is in full force and the temperatures have dropped quickly. With all this cold and dreary weather, it seems like my body wants to go into hibernation mode. Naps, blankets, tea/hot cocoa and hearty foods. So casseroles like this one, are right up my alley this month. I love the ease of baked pastas. I love the crispy melty cheese on top, the tender pasta and hearty meat, all cooked in sauce. HEAVEN!! 

The kids absolutely love this "pizza-ghetti" as they liked to call it. Now that they are teenagers, I need something low cost but filling. They like to eat me out of a house and home. Super simple and very reminiscent of lasagna, this recipe is sure to give your family the fuel it needs to keep going during the colder months of the year!

Baked Pizza Spaghetti

12 oz uncooked spaghetti
1 lb  Italian pork sausage
2- 14 oz jars pizza sauce
3/4 cup diced pepperoni
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Fresh basil, if desired

Heat oven to 350ºF. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large pot, cook and drain pasta as directed on package, using minimum cook time. Return spaghetti to the pot.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook sausage until no longer pink; drain. Add to the pot with, spaghetti, pizza sauce and pepperoni.
In medium bowl, mix ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and eggs. Spoon half of spaghetti mixture into the baking dish. Dollop with ricotta mixture; spread evenly over top. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining spaghetti mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
Bake uncovered 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with basil.

  1. What a great idea!! I love simple and delicious recipes. Can’t wait to try this one with my own family. You take amazing photos too :)

    1. Thank you! I hope your family likes this as much as we did!

  2. Looks so comforting! Anything pasta related is good, in my opinion. :)

    1. I agree! Cutting down on carbs is hard when you love pasta Haha

  3. I'm almost afraid to make it because I KNOW that The Man will demand it all the time. Maybe I'll just start out with quadrupling the recipe and freezing some! Looks so good.

  4. it looks so delicious and I like the idea of baked spaghetti :) We love pasta and for sure I will try your idea very soon!

  5. This sounds really lovely, and a bit simpler than a traditional lasagna too.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
