Need easy pasta casserole recipes ("Nudelkasserole")?
Here's an adaptation of one I found when I was in Germany. It came from one of the many German cooking magazines that have so many wonderful recipes. This one is a variation of a spaghetti casserole recipe.
Pasta is Italian and noodles are German AND Southern Germany loves its noodles.
Enjoy this cultural mix because these "noodle nests" don't use German noodles, but rather spaghetti. So, then, this could become your best spaghetti recipe -- It's a fun casserole to make for company. Make it ahead and then just pop it in the oven to bake.
I enjoy making this using either whole wheat or multigrain spaghetti - not only delicious, but healthy as well! Want vegetarian? Then omit the sausage.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Gaby S: This is in my oven right NOW!!! Can't wait to try it!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
Debbie M: These will certainly be a hit. My 89 year old mother-in- law will love them.
