“My baked spaghetti :)”
2hrs 45mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef in a dutch oven and the seasoning salt, garlic powder, oregano, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce at this point. Sorry for that lack of amounts, I just eyeball it and with the spice I find it is an individual taste. If you are using table salt instead of seasoned salt do not add very much when you are browning the beef -- the pasta sauce has a fair bit of it. After the meat is browned add the pasta sauce, mushrooms, and parmasan cheese. put the water in the jar the pasta sauce was in and give it a good shake or two and add it ai the meat sauce. (it beats scraping all the pasta sauce out of the jar) bring to a boil then reduce to med/low and let simmer leave uncovered and stir occasionally. Let it cook for about 1hour or so, you just want it to thicken a bit. Cook you spaghetti, well try not to cook it completely -- all little under cooked is best, don't worry it will finish in the oven.
  2. The build :).
  3. after everything is ready to go pour the meat sauce in to a bowl. Take the dutch oven that it was in and put it about 1/2 of the spaghetti (don't clean it rinse it or anything) ladle on about half of the meat sauce and smooth it out. Add the rest of the spaghetti and then the rest of the meat sauce. Add the grated mozzarella cheese on top (cover liberally). Place in a oven preheated to 400f bake untill the cheese has melted then broil to brown the cheese.
