Easy Baked Spaghetti Recipe

This easy Baked Spaghetti recipe, "Überbackene Spaghetti", is one of those quick pasta casserole recipes that's great when you're looking for easy dinner ideas. Quick German Recipe? Of course it it. Well, tweaked anyways. Instead of the usual Mozzarella, use a nice German Emmentaler.

It's super if you have left-over spaghetti (or perhaps you made extra the day before just to have it ready.) 

If you only have one colour of peppers, use them. However, using three different colours of peppers makes this such a delicious looking dish.

If you wanted to turn this into a complete supper, (it'll easily become your best spaghetti recipe) add some leftover cooked meat, such as beef, chicken, or turkey. Even smoked sausages cut into pieces would be a treat.

Easy Baked Spaghetti

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz spaghetti
  • 3 peppers (use 3 colours if possible)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 8 oz Emmentaler or Gouda, sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme

Instructions:

  • Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Dice peppers and sauté in olive oil for 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic to peppers. Add spaghetti. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour spaghetti mixture into greased casserole dish. Cover with slices and sprinkle with thyme.
  • Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve.

Whenever Mutti served up spaghetti in any form, I always thought we were eating Italian-style. I really was shocked when I travelled to southern Germany many, many years later, and found out that pasta and noodles are very common there. 

Don't forget dessert ...
