Oma's Easy Baked Spaghetti Recipe❤️

An easy baked spaghetti recipe that's made from scratch or uses leftovers. So wunderbar!❤️
https://www.quick-german-recipes.com/easy-baked-spaghetti-recipe.htmlInstead of using sliced cheese, I had some grated to use up. Worked perfectly!

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 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, add some leftover cooked meat, such as beef, chicken, or turkey. Even smoked sausages cut into pieces would be a treat.

Oma's Easy Baked Spaghetti Recipe❤️

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 cheese slices and sprinkle with thyme.
  • Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve.

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.
