Cheesy Baked Spaghetti with a Touch of Comfort


  • 1 box (16 oz) of spaghetti noodles, boiled according to package instructions
  • 2 lbs ground beef, browned
  • 1 large jar (24 oz) of your favorite marinara sauce
  • 1 packet of spaghetti seasoning mix (or make your own with Italian herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper)
  • 1 bag (8 oz) of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
  • Olive oil, for greasing the baking dish


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a large baking dish with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large pot, cook the spaghetti noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
  4. Add the jar of marinara sauce and spaghetti seasoning mix to the skillet with the cooked ground beef. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. In the prepared baking dish, layer half of the cooked spaghetti noodles on the bottom.
  6. Spread half of the meat sauce mixture over the noodles, ensuring an even layer.
  7. Sprinkle half of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the meat sauce layer.
  8. Repeat the layers with the remaining spaghetti noodles, meat sauce, and mozzarella cheese.
  9. If desired, sprinkle Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes over the top for extra flavor and heat.
  10. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  11. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  12. Once baked, let it cool slightly before serving.
  13. Serve portions of the cheesy baked spaghetti with a side of garlic bread or a simple salad for a complete meal.

Note: Feel free to customize the recipe by adding in any extra vegetables like bell peppers, onions, or mushrooms to the meat sauce for added flavor and nutrition. Enjoy your comforting homemade meal!
