Two meats and two cheeses create a scrumptious flavor combination in my easy recipe for baked spaghetti. 

Do you remember eating spaghetti in school? I always looked forward to spaghetti day for some reason. We used to have fund raiser dinners for the Parent Teacher Organization and often those would be spaghetti dinners with a huge turn out. 

 “The secret is in the sauce!” Do you remember that line from the movie Fried Green Tomatoes?

I like to melt the cheese on top until it is just beginning to brown. Who else loves that bite of crusted cheese on top? You don’t have to do that. Just remove it from the oven a little bit sooner if you are not a fan of crusty cheese like me!

Layer beginning and ending with the spaghetti noodles. Reserve about 1 cup of the cheese mixture for the topping. When the dish is hot and bubbly, remove from oven, top with cheese and return to oven just long enough to melt the cheese on top.

It’s always nice to get compliments from my precious husband when I get his seal of approval on a meal.

I implemented a mealtime rule at our house many years ago. Everyone is required to say something nice about the meal even if they didn’t like it. No rules required for this Two Meat, Two Cheese Baked Spaghetti & Meatballs dinner!

  1. This looks amazing! You are so talented. Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for being a part of our party. I hope to see you tonight at 7 pm. Happy Monday! Lou Lou Girls

  2. How funny. We just had spaghetti for dinner last night. We eat it almost once weekly since it’s so easy to make. Your bake is a nice twist on an already loved meal.

  3. I have a favorite baked spaghetti recipe I’ve been making for years. It’s different from yours, so the next time I make it I’m going to try your version. My husband will love that it has 2 meats! I can see this one becoming a favorite at my house.

We enjoying hearing from you!
