Baked Spaghetti Recipe

My hubby and neighbor both really enjoyed this.  It was pretty good even for a self declared non spaghetti fan!  I will say though that the meatballs were the hit of the dish for me.  You can find my meatball recipe here: .
6 cups cooked thin spaghetti noodles
Alfredo sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Italian Meatballs (small bag I use homemade!!!)
Marinara Sauce (I used a 25 oz jar)
Optional: grated Parmesan and oregano for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease mini loaf pan.
Mix cooked spaghetti with Alfredo sauce.
Fill each of the mini loaves with the pasta and press down on the top to pack in it, adding more as necessary.
Sprinkle the tops with about 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese.
Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
While the spaghetti is baking, heat Italian meatballs and marinara sauce.
Put a little sauce in each bowl, add one of the baked spaghetti loaves, top with Italian meatballs and more marinara sauce.
Optional: Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan and oregano.
Alfredo Sauce
1 Cup milk ( I use 2%, the lighter the milk the thinner your sauce will be.)
1 1/2 Tbs butter
1 1/2 Tbs flour
3 Tbs parmesan cheese
2 cloves of garlic minced (I use 3)
1 dash of pepper ( to your taste)

On medium heat melt butter in a sauce pan
Gradually whisk in flour. This will create a yellow paste.
Gradually add the milk, whisking until there are no lumps left. Continue to whisk until hot, usually 3-5 min. ( the longer you cook the sauce before you add the cheese the thicker your sauce will be.)
Add the cheese slowly, once again whisking until thoroughly mixed.
Add the garlic and pepper.
Cook for 2-3 min until cheese is melted.
Remove from heat.

Hubby took the picture... he could have done better!
