Creamy Baked Spaghetti

This baked spaghetti recipe is going to quickly become a new family favorite. I don’t even make regular spaghetti anymore – we all love this comfort food version too much!

I’ve been holding out on you.

My family’s favorite recipe. The one we eat over and over and over again. The one that every single person in my family, even the girl who hates everything, will eat. The one that is basically comfort on a plate.

This recipe, you guys. It’s a winner in my family and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a winner in your family, too.

Just one word of warning…the creamy white sauce that goes in the pasta? Don’t sneak a taste of it before you add it to the pasta. Just don’t. You’ll end up eating plain spaghetti, because once you start, you can’t stop. It’s amazing.

Move over, lasagna. We don’t need you.

I’ve seen this called Million Dollar Spaghetti all over the internet. I think it’s also pretty similar to Cheddar’s spasagna recipe, but it’s been so many years since I’ve had that, so I could be wrong! Whatever you want to call this dish, I’m sure it’s going to be a new family favorite!

We have a tendency to eat this a little too often considering that we’d all like our pants to still fit. That’s why I created a low carb version! It’s not quite as decadent, but it’s so good and perfectly satisfying. You’ll love my cream cheese zoodles!
