Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti

Baked Spaghetti! Thanks to Paula Deen for coming up with this one. This is perfect for a one pot family meal, or for a potluck. I made this on a Friday night a week ago, and we had it for a few meals LOL. Two adults and a 17mos old could not finish it off in one go! What I love is that it has my family favourites in this - mince and spaghetti. Loved watching the toddler demolish this :)This is a meal you need to have a lot of space for in your tummy ... so if you have big hungry eaters at home, they will love this!
