This baked spaghetti with sausage is a twist on the classic meatball and spaghetti recipe that everyone loves.
Unfortunately, my family eats spaghetti at least once or twice a week, which I get tired of eating.
Though, recently we decided to mix things up and make our spaghetti in a casserole dish.
Of course, it had layers of parmesan and mozzarella cheese and Johnsonville Italian Mild Sausage.
I’m happy to report the spaghetti casserole was a huge hit with my entire family and we had enough leftovers for lunch the next day!
Personally, cheesy baked spaghetti is now my NEW favorite way to eat spaghetti. If you rather use ground meat, pepperoni, or mini meatballs instead of the sausage you can.
