Baked Spaghetti

Ok so once again I'm not doing too well with blogging. I have a few things I've made so hopefully this week I can post them all! Now on to the delicious baked spaghetti. I love homemade lasagna but it takes too long to make when you want something quick. Spaghetti is quick but sometimes it's just too boring. Cue Baked Spaghetti!! Not only is it an easy recipe but it makes so many portions it's perfect if you are having people over or if you want lots of leftovers. Add some garlic bread and a salad and you got yourself the perfect little Italian dinner! Diverti!! (pretty sure that means enjoy in Italian)

Baked Spaghetti
Adapted from
1 (16 ounce) package angel hair spaghetti
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
2 (24 ounce) jar meatless spaghetti sauce
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
5 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups ricotta cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and seasoned salt; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, Parmesan cheese and butter. Drain spaghetti; add to egg mixture and toss to coat.
3. Place half of the spaghetti mixture in a 12-in x9-in. x 2-in.  baking dish (brush bottom of baking dish with spaghetti sauce). Top with half of the ricotta cheese, meat sauce, and then mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
