Here’s the recipe for Baked Spaghetti:


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 jars pasta sauce
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped

  • 12 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese

  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Add the chopped bell peppers, onions, salt, pepper, Kinders seasoning blend, garlic powder, and dried basil. Cook until the beef is fully cooked and the vegetables are softened.
  3. Drain any excess grease from the skillet, then add the pasta sauce, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, and a handful of shredded Parmesan cheese to the skillet. Mix well until everything is fully incorporated. Let it simmer for a few more minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

  5. Transfer the spaghetti mixture to a greased baking dish. Top with another handful of shredded Parmesan cheese, the shredded mozzarella cheese, and the fresh mozzarella slices.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges are golden brown.
  7. Serve the baked spaghetti hot with garlic bread on the side.
