“This is a really good comfort meal for busy nights. It takes 60 minutes to be done completely, but a lot of that time is passively spent just waiting around for it to be baked in the oven! (Suggestion: have a nice glass of red wine while you're waiting!)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Prepare spaghetti sauce.
  3. Cook pasta for 1/3 of its preparation time in oiled and salted water.
  4. Pasta should be chewy and a little hard in the middle.
  5. Drain all but about 1/4 cup of the water.
  6. Stir in sauce.
  7. Mixture should be very wet because the spaghetti will continue to cook and absorb moisture.
  8. Grease a large baking dish and put a layer of spaghetti, then a layer of one-third of the cheese, then a layer of one-half of the olives (both kinds), repeat, then more spaghetti.
  9. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake for 30 minutes or until warmed through.
  10. Garnish with the remaining grated cheese and raw parsley.
  11. Serve.
