  • 1 small onion
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used about ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper)
  • 3 cups homemade or store-bought marinara sauce
  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • ½ cup grated cheese I used a blend of Italian cheeses, but just mozzarella cheese or just cheddar cheese would work too
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. A deep 11 x 7-inch dish works well, but you can also use a 9 x 13-inch dish.

  2. Heat about 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sautee onion until just tender (about 3-5 minutes). Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain fat from the skillet. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and stir in marinara sauce.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain.
  4. Add cooked pasta to the meat sauce and stir to combine.
  5. Pour into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes.
Recipe Notes

Cooking Just for Two? Just cut all of the ingredients in half and bake the spaghetti in an 8-inch square (or slightly smaller) baking dish. Cooking instructions remain the same. In the alternative, you can prepare the entire recipe, divide the mixture between two small baking dishes (about 8-inch square dishes each), and freeze one of the casseroles for a later date.

Want to Prep Ahead? This is the perfect meal for getting organized ahead of time! You can prep the dish in the morning and leave it in the refrigerator (covered), until you're ready to bake it in the evening. If you want to freeze the dish, you can prepare the baked spaghetti through Step 5, cover tightly with foil, and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, thaw the casserole in the refrigerator overnight and proceed with baking instructions.
