No Boil Spaghetti Bake – Recipe Below
No Boil Spaghetti Bake Recipe - No Boil Baked Pasta Recipe
- 1 lbs spaghetti noodles
- 3 cups water
- 3 cups marinara sauce
- 3 cups shredded cheese I used cheddar, mozzarella and Mexican blend
- salt as needed
- 3 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat oven to 425 degree Fahrenheit.
- Layer the spaghetti (or any pasta you are using) in a single layer in the baking pan on top of the spread.
- Add the water, marinara sauce and enough salt, stir everything well with the spaghetti.
- Also add the garlic powder and olive oil, stir again to mix the contents well.
- Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes of baking, remove the foil and add 2 cups of shredded cheese, put the pan back for baking without the foil covering for another few minutes until the cheese begins to melt (it took around 10 minutes for me).
- Once the cheese starts to melt, gently stir the contents so the melted cheese will blend with the spaghetti.
- Top the spaghetti with the remaining cheese (you may add little more cheese if you wish) and bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is all melted and started to brown.
- Transfer the baking pan from the hot oven, serve the delicious baked spaghetti for lunch or dinner!
