Need an unusaul pasta casserole recipes, aka Nudelkasserole? Here's an adaptation of one I found when I was in Germany several years ago, Nudelnester, translated as Noodle Nests! 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. It makes one wonder why it's called noodles, but that's the way it's known.
It's a fun casserole to make for company. Make it ahead and then just pop it in the oven to bake.
I've made this using either whole wheat or multigrain spaghetti - not only delicious, but healthier as well!
Want vegetarian? Then omit the sausage.
