This Baked Spaghetti meal comes together easily for a great family meal…even when you are busy! I’m a major stickler for family meals. I think it’s important for us all to sit around the dinner table each day. We all have those crazy nights where our kids need to be 18 different places at once!
I made this Baked Spaghetti the other day and it was perfect for a quick filling dinner. I was able to make it ahead of time and then just pop it in the oven right before dinner! So convenient!
