An easy baked spaghetti recipe that's made from scratch or uses leftovers. So wunderbar!Instead of using sliced cheese, I had some grated to use up. Worked perfectly!

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.
