Large Family Freezer Meals: Easy Baked Spaghetti Recipe
Spaghetti is such a cost-effective meal for a large family like ours. I can adjust the amount of ground beef I use to match what I have available. I can use ground turkey instead. I can use canned spaghetti sauce, a combination of canned sauce and tomato sauce, canned whole tomatoes I whiz in the blender, or a combination of any of these.
Baking spaghetti takes this delicious meal to a whole new level. It’s less messy for the little kids to eat. No losing noodles off the fork. This baked spaghetti recipe tends to hold together a little bit better than traditional spaghetti. It’s also a one-pan meal and if you use disposable pans like me, there are no pots to wash. Amen.

Easy Baked Spaghetti RecipePrint
Easier than traditional spaghetti and no pots to wash if you use disposable pans! I got 6 – 13 x 9 pans of spaghetti from this recipe.
4 lbs cooked spaghetti noodles
2 cups sour cream (Per pan)
3-4 cups cheese (Per pan)
Stir cooked noodles into sauce.
Put spaghetti into 13 x 9 pans.
Spoon sour cream over top of spaghetti.
Top with shredded cheese.
(You can also mix 2 eggs with ricotta cheese to top these with. I was out of ricotta and using sour cream in place of it is a little trick of mine. Use whatever you have or whatever is most cost-effective.)
Freeze and bake according to my directions below.
