Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Bolognese

When company’s coming and I want easy but delicious comfort food, I always rely on this  Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Bolognese.  It’s so tasty and always a huge hit!

 

 

I didn’t think it would work the first time I tried it but people who had them seemed to like them and I always had good feedback. So I thought, it’s about time I share this delicious baked pasta with all of you.

 

 

For the Bolognese Sauce, I use this authentic Italian recipe which was adapted from the Ultimate Italian Cookbook by Carla Capalbo. I have never used any other meat sauce apart from this as it’s so yummy. See photo below of this delicious bolognese sauce. It is absolutely indispensable for this dish. 

 

Ok, I must add that this is not very diet-friendly recipe so serve this on special occasions, like when company’s coming. It makes a huge batch (9×13 casserole dish) so you can still manage with some portion control! It’s so  very good though that every calorie is worth it! 🙂

Ingredients

1 recipe for Bolognese sauce*
1 block of Cream cheese, softened at room temp
1 (8 oz) tub of  Sour cream
12oz – 1 lb Spaghetti, cooked al dente
2 cups, shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or your favorite Cheese)*

NOTES:

*To ensure that your Baked Bolognese won’t be greasy, try to drain the extra drippings from the sauce, if you’re bothered by it anyway.

*I sometimes use Parmesan cheese, too  though it won’t melt as nicely as regular cheddar cheese. You can adjust the amount to taste. 

 

 

Procedure 

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Combine the softened cream cheese and sour cream.

 

 

Using a 9 x 13 baking dish, layer the ingredients in this order – place half of the spaghetti on the bottom, spread evenly on the pasta half of the cream cheese mixture and then on top spread out the bolognese.

 

 

Repeat the layer.

 

 

For the final touch, sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top.

 

 

Bake in a preheated oven for about 30 mins or until the cheese is melted and the pasta layer is heated through. Enjoy with some Salad and Garlic Bread!

    I made this up and split it into smaller containers. I took one to a friend today (along with a few other things) for her baby shower where we were stocking her freezer (she is having girl number 3 and doesn't really need baby things). We baked one at home for dinner, too, and it is soooo good!!
