Take your dinner casserole to the next level with our easy homemade pizza spaghetti bake recipe. If this doesn’t instantly become a family favorite well, we don’t know what, but it’s freakin’ delicious and we’re pretty confident you’re going to be wild for the flavors. What’s more, we worked extra hard in the test kitchen to ensure the pasta is perfectly cooked and each bite is amazingly moist.
You don’t have to sauté the veggies beforehand, so preparing this meal is super quick. We used a 9 x 13 baking dish to produce a filling that’s about 4″ thick. If you’re using a dish with different dimensions, you may need to adjust the cooking time. Just keep an eye on it while it bakes in the oven.
Everyone in the test kitchen got pretty serious about who got to keep the leftovers, so rest assured your leftovers will be a hot commodity. From the seasonings to the toppings, this cheesy, gooey and bubbly casserole is one for the books!
