Baked Spaghetti

This Baked Spaghetti is a dressed up version of spaghetti perfect for a potluck or for bringing in to a family for dinner.

I need to find a new doctor. The one I have now always leaves me feeling confused and frustrated. I grew up in a house where we didn’t even take Tylenol for headaches and we definitely didn’t go to the doctor unless we were absolutely dying. But over the years I’ve found that about once a year I come down with some sickness that won’t let me ignore it.

I’m pretty forgiving but it’s been one thing after another with this doctor. My last visit put me over the edge. As I was telling her my symptoms, she wrinkled her forehead, opened her laptop and said enthusiastically, “Hmm. Let’s Google it!”

NOT what you want to ever hear from your doctor. At least excuse yourself to the hallway and then Google it, right?

And then she said, “Hey, look at this. How funny! It says ask your doctor.”

Hilarious. Hi-lar-i-ous.

Is she going to be paying my babysitter? Because I could have felt crappy and done the Google thing at home…for FREE.

Baked Spaghetti | The Girl Who Ate EverythingI don’t know about you guys but I always struggle with what to bring into families for dinner. I want it to be good but also kid friendly. I’m always so grateful when my friends bring me meals when I have a baby. What’s even more awesome is when the meal is somewhat kid friendly so I don’t have to make my kids a separate dinner. This Baked Spaghetti is a kid friendly as it gets but has a couple more add-ins that make it nice enough for any occasion. I know I already have a decadent Baked Spasagna on this blog which is a mix between spaghetti and lasagna, but this is more true to traditional spaghetti.
