Baked Spaghetti Ingredients:

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp mince garlic
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella

How To Make Spaghetti Alfredo

Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the spaghetti. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef and sausage until browned, about 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove from heat and drain off any excess grease.

Return the skillet back to low heat and add the garlic powder and onion powder.

Add your jar of spaghetti sauce to the meat mixture and let simmer for 10 minutes.

While your meat sauce mixture is simmering, you'll want to make your homemade Alfredo sauce.

Add a stick of butter to a clean pan and melt over medium heat. Add your minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds.

Whisk in your heavy whipping cream and parmesan and stir until a thick sauce forms. You can season your cream sauce with salt, black pepper or Italian seasoning if you want more flavor.

Grease an 11x13 inch baking dish with softened butter or nonstick spray and add your hot pasta noodles to the dish.

Pour Alfredo sauce on top of your spaghetti noodles in an even layer.

Top with the meat sauce mixture. Cover with mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 5-10 minutes until golden brown on top and bubbling around the edges.

Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

This delicious and easy Spaghetti Alfredo dish is sure to please the entire family. You may want to double this recipe because everyone will be asking for seconds and thirds!

Serve with a side of garlic bread or a green salad – it's sure to be an instant hit in your home. Enjoy!
