Spaghetti Bake

Last night for dinner we had spaghetti with my family and had TONS of leftovers. Well, tonight we didn't feel like just regular spaghetti, so Cameron decided he was going to create something, so we made Spaghetti Bake. It was pretty easy and pretty good. Here is what we used:

Pictured above:
-Leftover pasta
-Leftover sauce
-Leftover frozen sausage
-Mozzarella cheese
-Parmesan cheese
-Colby Jack cheese
-Cheddar cheese
-Onion powder
-Garlic salt
-Italian seasoning
-Caesar Vinaigrette Dressing
-Buffalo Wing Sauce
-Lemon Juice (which we did not end up using)
-Canned 4 Cheese spaghetti sauce

You don't have to use all the same sauces and spices as we did, just combine your favorites to get the taste you want. We wanted a little bit of zip in the spaghetti sauce so we added some wing sauce and vinaigrette. This was a "use whatever's in the pantry" meal for us. Also, you don't have to use all the same cheeses...we just wanted something cheesy! We put a little too much cheese in overall, but it wasn't bad.

Here is how we made it:
1. Combine leftover and "new" sauce in sauce pan.
2. Add sausage (or you could do browned hamburger, either one)

3. Add seasonings and sauces

4. Oil a casserole dish so the pasta won't stick.
5. Put a layer of spaghetti in the dish.
6. Add a layer of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
7. Add a layer of sauce.
8. Add a layer of Colby Jack and Cheddar cheeses.
9. Repeat steps 5-8 till pasta and sauce are gone or until dish is full.
10. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-20 minutes. We like the cheese a little crispy on top, so we left ours in about 20 minutes.

11. Enjoy!
