Baked Beef Spaghetti
How to make Baked Beef Spaghetti
* 1 1-lb box spaghetti
* 2 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 white onion, finely chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 lb ground beef
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 tsp Italian seasoning
* 1 28-oz can San Marzano tomatoes
* 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
* 1 cup shredded mozzarella
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
* Chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté onions for 5 minutes or until they’re starting to turn translucent. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add ground beef, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and cook until meat is browned, about 8 minutes.
In a medium bowl crush tomatoes by hand. Pour both tomatoes and the juice in with the beef and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add in chopped basil and toss with spaghetti. Taste sauce and add more salt and pepper if needed.
Transfer to casserole dish if the mixture won’t all fit into the skillet. Top with cheeses and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and beginning to brown. Top with chopped parsley and serve piping hot.
