Spaghetti Parm

I just love Rachael Ray and her recipes – Rachael Ray’s Official Website

1 pound spaghetti or pasta shape of your choice
EVOO
1 can chopped or whole tomatoes
1/2 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
A handful of fresh basil
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Serves 6

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or spread a touch of EVOO all over the dish.

Add EVOO to cover a medium size sauce pot and heat to medium. Sauté the onions and garlic just for 3-4 minutes and add the tomatoes. If using whole, mash them up with a wooden spoon. Let this simmer for about 20 minutes and add the basil, salt and pepper towards the end.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta to about 2 minutes less than done, as it will be baked and you don’t want the pasta to be mushy. Toss the drained pasta with about 1 cup of sauce.

Add 1/2 of the sauced pasta to the prepared dish, and top with about 1/2 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 of the cheeses. Add the remaining pasta and top with the rest of the sauce and cheeses.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Serve with baked meatballs or sausage if desired.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!

  1. I can’t stand listening to Rachel Ray speak, I’ve never (intentionally) used her recipes before, but this does look pretty enticing…
