Baked Spaghetti from Jamie
Mix these ingredients together and place in a greased 9x13 baking dish:
12 oz angel hair pasta, cooked
1 C parmesan cheese
2 T chopped basil
Mix these together and place on top of the pasta:
1 lb hamburger, cooked
1 (13 oz) container ricotta cheese
2 C grated mozzarella cheese, save ½ C for the top
1 jar pasta sauce
Sprinkle ½ C mozzarella cheese on sauce. Bake at 350 for about 35 min or until the cheese starts to bubble.
**You might be tempted to throw the whole box (16oz) of pasta in to boil. I've done that before and it definitely only needs the 12 oz that is calls for. I found it was not enough sauce for that extra bit of noodles.
**If you have a pasta sauce that you love and don't want to alter--perfect. Otherwise I like to use the Prago regular sauce and add 1/4-1/2 C brown sugar, 2-4 cloves of garlic, and italian seasoning. I just season it to taste.
