Yummy and easy to customize. I used 1 lb. of ground round, a 32 oz. jar of Arabiatta Sauce from Trader Joe's, and 1/2 lb (half box) of spaghetti. A whole box would be way too much - as it was, it just fit into my largest Pyrex casserole dish. I first sauteed a large onion in olive oil. Then I browned the beef, seasoning it well with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and chopped garlic. Then I added the spaghetti sauce and let it render down well, so the sauce wasn't runny. I cooked the spaghetti for 6 minutes, so it wasn't too soft. I layered the spaghetti/sauce mix, mild cheddar, the remainer of the spaghetti, and more cheddar. I let it cook for 15 mns, then topped it with a nice layer of shredded mozzerella. I baked the dish about another 10 mns at 350 degrees until the cheese was melted through. It came out tasy and surpringly light, and not runny at all.



This was very easy to throw together at the last minute. Next time I will add more sauce as it was a little dry.

I, like so many other moms, have NO time to really cook like I use too. It stinks but recipes like this make my life so much easier! This was a family favorite the first time we had it and leftovers the next night!! I have seen all the variations so I know I can kick it up a notch when I have the time but this basic recipe is quick and easy! I made it in the morning before work and heated it up when I got home. This is a keeper!
