This was such a yummy recipe... and EASY to make! The kids love spaghetti and will eat so much of it when we sit down at the table. I saw this recipe and wanted to try the baked version and I am so glad that I did. They tasted delicious and the meatballs added to the top was some that the kids loved. It made 8 mini loaves so I figured that we would have leftovers for the next day but the kids loved them so much that the two we had leftover had to be cut in half and passed out amongst the kids... Shoot - it was a good thought anyhow! :) It did call for a homemade alfredo sauce, but I went the lazy way for once and just used a jarred sauce.
(Recipe found at thegunnysack.com via Pinterest)
6 cups cooked thin spaghetti noodles
12 ounces alfredo sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Italian Meatballs (small bag)
25 ounces marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 350 and grease mini loaf pan. Mix cooked spaghetti with alfredo sauce. Fill each of the mini loaves with the pasta and press down on the top to pack in it, adding more as necessary. Sprinkle the tops with about 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake for about 25 minutes at 350. While the spaghetti is baking, heat Italian meatballs and marinara sauce. Put a little sauce in each bowl, add one of the baked spaghetti loaves, top with Italian meatballs and more marinara sauce.
