Individual baked spaghetti

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes

Individual baked spaghetti

Cooking spray
1 cup cooked spaghetti
1 cup spaghetti meat sauce
2 dashes black pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/8 cup finely diced onion
1/8 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded, reduced-fat, mild Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an individual casserole dish or pie pan with cooking spray and set aside. If using leftover spaghetti or sauce, warm them, separately, in a saucepan or microwave. In a small bowl, combine spaghetti, pepper, and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat spaghetti. Spoon into baking dish. Top evenly with sauce. Sprinkle with mushrooms, onion, and green pepper, and then with Cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through.

If you don’t have a favorite homemade spaghetti sauce, try adding browned and drained ground round (about 2 ounces meat per 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce) to a spaghetti sauce low in fat and sodium (such as Healthy Choice). This recipe also works with meatless sauce.
