You can substitute the mushrooms for half a pound of ground beef or chopped up chicken breast if you want a more meaty meal.

Easy Baked Spaghetti Recipe

  • Ingredients:
  • 1lb box spaghetti (no.8 or no.9)
  • 1 14oz jar of spaghetti sauce, any flavor
  • 1 8oz can mushrooms
  • 1 14.5oz can petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 8oz bag shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup pasta water
  • 1/8 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 cup dried oregano

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a 8×8 inch pan with cooking spray. Reserve to the side.

Break spaghetti in half and cook half of the time mentioned on the box.
While spaghetti is cooking, drain the tomatoes and mix with oregano and mushrooms in a medium bowl.

Drain spaghetti, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Add spaghetti sauce, tomato mix, and spaghetti back to the pot and mix well.
Add the mixture into prepared pan, top with shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

    This sounds much better then my pasta bake but a little heavy on the oregano. How about a little fresh garlic. I love garlic. A salad and warm crusty bread. I am definitely trying this recipe. Thanks for sharing

    true, it seems like alot of oregano but we are oregano freaks here and hubby is a garlic freak so I made a side of garlic cheesy bread to go with this, along with a small salad. Hope you enjoy it!
