This easy Baked Spaghetti recipe, aka 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 is.
Well, tweaked anyways. Instead of the usual Mozzarella, use a nice German Emmentaler cheese.
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 color of peppers, use them. However, using three different colors of peppers makes this such a delicious looking dish.
If you wanted to turn this into a complete supper, add some leftover cooked meat, such as beef, chicken, or turkey. Even smoked sausages cut into pieces would be a treat.
If you have some leftover spaghetti to use, you'll need a about 6 - 7 cups of it for this recipe. No leftover spaghetti? Use any other kind of pasta as well. Actually, if you're cooking this from scratch, any other kind of pasta would work really good as well.
If you're not a fan of the 'long' strands of spaghetti, you can always break it into smaller pieces before you cook it. However, if you've got kids, they really love slurping those long pastas!
How to serve this dish? Well, it tastes absolutely fabulous all by itself, but I usually serve it with some tomato sauce and any leftover meat. No leftover meat? Hubby loves it when I put a can of corned beef in the sauce. I try keep the meat in slices and stir carefully so as not to break it up too much.
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.
Oma's Cream Roll recipe, Biskuitrolle, is the German version of a Swiss roll or jelly roll. Filled with whipped cream and studded with berries, this is an easy-to-make treat anytime of the year.
Make this pan roasted carrot recipe when you're wanting quick and easy carrots just like this German Oma makes them. Similar to oven roasted, just quicker. YUM!
Cooking green beans, German-style, makes a wonderful side dish for almost any meal. Cooking the grüne Bohnen till just tender with a creamy white sauce is so traditional and so lecker!
