Spaghetti Bake

When Stacy made this, I have to admit I was excited.  I mean.  It's spaghetti.  Baked.  All that ooey gooey cheese just waved at me from the casserole dish and I was so happy.  I admit it.  I love cheese.  And it definitely went well in this dish.



Spaghetti Bake

Adapted from a recipe found at: Southern Bite

Ingredients You'll Need:

  • 8 oz angel hair spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 24 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 8 oz cream cheese 
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
  • 2 cups chopped green and red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons butter



Directions:

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions and drain.
  • Saute onions, bell peppers, and butter over medium heat.  Set aside.  Using the same skillet cook the turkey until browned.
  • Return bell peppers and onions to pan and add spaghetti sauce. Bring to a simmer.
  • In another small bowl, combine cream cheese, milk, and garlic powder. (You may need to add water to this mixture if it is too thick.  Just add a teaspoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.)
  • Spray a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray and layer noodles, then cream cheese mixture, then meat sauce. Top with mozzarella and bake at 350 degrees F 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.


Hello, Cheese.  Where have you been all my life? ;)


I loved this stuff.  Usually I try not to go back a second time, but I had to make an exception for this.  It was that good!  Enjoy xoxo

  1. Spaghetti is my boys' favorite thing. They are going to love this. I'm thinking of using ricotta instead of cream cheese. Do you think that would work out?

    1. Sorry to take so long to reply! Everyone has been sick at my house with the flu. I haven't tried it with ricotta so I'm not sure how it would change the taste. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out =)
