Baked Pizza Spaghetti

This recipe can be made in about a million variations just by doing a pasta combination covered with cheese and thrown into the oven. This one was made kind of based on a pizza spaghetti a co-worker brought in on Black Friday that was SO good I just had to try my own recipe for it. I used a jar of sauce, but in the future when I have more time I think I want to come up with a more customized recipe.


1 Box Spaghetti
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce of Your Choice
1 Small Can Tomato Sauce
1/2 lb Ground Beef
1/2 lb Sausage
1/4 Cup Diced Onion
2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
8oz Shredded Cheese (Italian Mix goes well!)


Boil spaghetti according to directions. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet brown the ground beef and sausage. Once browned, add the diced onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes until the onions start to become translucent. Sprinkle about a teaspoon of oregano in for a little extra flavor.

(Preheat oven to 425 degrees) Add large jar of spaghetti sauce to the meat and cook for 5-10 minutes until sauce is warmed and starts to bubble.

After straining spaghetti, pour into 9x13in glass baking dish. Cover with meat/sauce mixture and stir to mix up. (This might be easier if you just do it in the pot you boiled the spaghetti in, but I guess I just wanted to make as little of a mess as possible haha). Pour small sauce can over the spaghetti once it has all been mixed together.

Top with pepperoni (or any other "pizza toppings" you might like) and then cover with cheese. Throw in the oven for about ten minutes to start to melt the cheese, and then turn on the broiler and broil for just a few minutes to get the cheese bubbly and starting to turn golden around the edges. Make sure to watch it because the broiler can burn things quickly if you don't keep an eye on it!

Let cool, serve, and enjoy!!!!
