Cheese Stuffed Baked Spaghetti

Another quick fix irresistible dinner recipe for you!  We’ve been making baked spaghetti for years and I realized I don’t have the recipe on Picky Palate.  Needed to make that happen quick.  The kids and adults love this simple to prepare recipe.  Serve with a nice loaf of crusty bread and a side salad.  Some roasted veggies go great with this dish too.  Hope you enjoy!

You can see my latest step by step video from my YouTube page.  Be sure to follow me for more recipe videos this year!
