This hearty spaghetti casserole bakes with meat sauce and a creamy layer of ricotta cheese. If you're a fan of crispy edges, you can bake it in a 9 1/2- or 10-inch-wide Bundt pan instead of the casserole dish, and the whole thing will have those wonderful edges! (Allow the same amount of time for baking, about 40 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered.) The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.


  • nonstick cooking spray (for baking dish and meat sauce)
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • salt (for pasta water)
  • 1 pound 85% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (for meat sauce)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (for meat sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (for meat sauce)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (for meat sauce)
  • 4 cups marinara sauce (4 cups is about 36 oz.)
  • 15 ounces low-moisture ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup is about 2 oz.)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (for ricotta mixture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (for ricotta mixture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (for ricotta mixture)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (for ricotta mixture)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for ricotta mixture, 1 cup is about 4 oz.)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (for top of dish, 2 cups is about 8 oz.)
  • fresh basil leaves (optional, for serving)

    It was amazing!!!. I used ground sausage and added basil leaves. I highly recommend.

    Made as instructed, but it’s entirely way too much pasta for only 1lb of ground beef. Less pasta (probably 1/2) and 1lb of beef, more sauce needed and added some seasonings to our taste. I will make it again but, modify to meet our family’s taste.

    It was good. However, next time I’ll use less noodles and more meat and season it a little more! Needs some tweaking, but overall I would recommend it.
