I'm always looking for fast and easy midweek meals and this baked spaghetti lasagna is it. As I said, most of the ingredients you will have right in your pantry and fridge. The wonderful thing is, the entire dish can be made in about 30 minutes. As one member said: "These recipes make life so much easier."

[wpinsertshortcodead id="pgypi60b189d6e468e"]

  • 300 grams spaghetti (You can use a little more if you are unsure or don't have a scale.)
  • 1 jar (650 ml 22 oz) garlic and basil Pasta sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella
  • 20 slices pepperoni (I always get the pre-cut round pepperoni in the package.)
  1. Add a layer of sauce to the bottom of a 9 by 9 inch casserole dish and spread it out evenly.

  2. Place half the spaghetti over the sauce and spread it out once again. Follow this with by half the seasoning.

  3. Evenly spread half the mozzarella over the top.

  4. Add the remaining spaghetti over the top followed by the remaining sauce. 

  5. Lay the pepperoni over it. After that, spread the remaining mozzarella over and the remaining seasoning. 

  6. Place into a 360 degree F or 190 C preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

  7. Allow to set and rest for a few minutes. Plate, serve, and enjoy your easy baked spaghetti casserole.

As always, you don't have to be married to a recipe. Feel free to change any of the ingredients according to you liking.

You can make the sauce from scratch. If so, you might want to consider using ground beef. I just really like the pepperoni. Just make sure you use a good pepperoni.
