There is absolutely nothing better than a baked spaghetti casserole. The melted cheese on top just melts in your mouth.

Brown sausage and drain off grease. Sauté green pepper and onion, mix into sausage, add oregano and spaghetti sauce, and set aside. Cook spaghetti noodles 2 minutes less than package directions say then drain water off spaghetti. Pour noodles into sauce/sausage mixture and add 1 C. of the Mozzarella cheese. Stir well and pour into a buttered 9"x13" baking dish. Spread rest of Mozzarella cheese on top and bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

  • Can you tell me how many servings this recipe makes? I find many of the recipes here forget that.

  • I am new to this site and see that I am really going to enjoy it. But as I printed a recipe, I got the recipe, plus all the comments. Is there a way to only print the recipe. Cartridges cost a lot of money.
    Not knowing, I probably should have highlighted the recipe then printed. Will try next time.

  • This recipe sounds good, but the instructions are a little vague. Can anyone tell me what kind of sausage? Links or bulk? If using links do you add them whole or slice them? I thought I might squeeze the sausage out of the casing before cooking and crumble the meat up. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

  • Used 26 oz jar Ragu - 6 mild seasoned italian sausage links-16 oz. Mozzarrella cheese -turned out very tasty- family wants it again soon. (par boiled the sausage to reduce fat content -8 minutes before browning it) Serves 8-10

  • Denise: Excellent recipe. I have a similar recipe. I didn't even notice that you left out the size of spaghetti sauce and sausage. But then I tend to use common sense and added what I thought was the appropriate amount.

  • I am a diabetic also. I use Dreamfields Pasta and my family can't tell any difference. Dreamfields Pastas only have 5 carbs per serving. I'll be trying this recipe soon.

  • Fresh garlic is a "must" for this recipe. Why did you leave it out? If you don't like garlic then you don't like spaghetti sauce.

  • I agree with this comment. I would also like to see a calorie and fat content and also a carbohydrate count. I am a diabetic but my family is not so I like to try many recipes that we can all enjoy.
