5-Ingredient Amish Baked Spaghetti
"This 5-Ingredient Amish Baked Spaghetti is an easy dinner recipe that your entire family will love! The one-dish meal comes together quickly on busy nights for simple, cozy comfort food! While the original Amish recipe for Baked Spaghetti includes many more ingredients (and a few extra steps), I took that inspiration and tailored it to my busy lifestyle. I’ve created a new recipe that utilizes just 5 simple pantry staples that I almost always have on hand, so that we can enjoy a classic family-friendly dinner on even our busiest weeknights. Best of all, there’s no last-minute fussing over the stove (or boiling water) when I have tired and hungry kids that demand my attention. Instead, I can prepare this casserole in advance and keep it in the refrigerator until I’m ready to bake it. Prefer to stash it in your freezer for a later date? You can do that too!"
NotesCooking Just for Two? Just cut all of the ingredients in half and bake the spaghetti in an 8-inch square (or slightly smaller) baking dish. Cooking instructions remain the same. In the alternative, you can prepare the entire recipe, divide the mixture between two small baking dishes (about 8-inch square dishes each), and freeze one of the casseroles for a later date.
Want to Prep Ahead? This is the perfect meal for getting organized ahead of time! You can prep the dish in the morning and leave it in the refrigerator (covered), until you're ready to bake it in the evening. If you want to freeze the dish, you can prepare the baked spaghetti through Step 5, cover tightly with foil, and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, thaw the casserole in the refrigerator overnight and proceed with baking instructions.
