Baked Spaghetti

16 Sep

When I saw this recipe on one of my new favorite food blogs, Kitchen Corners, I immediately added it to our dinner menu schedule! This meal is easy and delicious, and a nice spin on your regular spaghetti dinner. Plus, adding fresh mozzarella to anything is always an added bonus! Enjoy!

Baked Spaghetti

2 cans diced tomatoes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound spaghetti
1 cup diced fresh mozzarella
Italian seasoning
Sliced fresh mozzarella to top

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Set a large pot of salted water to boil. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high and add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add Italian seasoning and salt to taste. Cook until sauce starts to thicken. Meanwhile, cook pasta as indicated on box. Drain pasta and return to pot. Add tomato sauce and diced mozzarella and toss to combine. Transfer mixture to a 3-quart baking dish and top with sliced mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is golden, about 20-25 minutes.
