1 (24 oz) Jar of your favorite Spaghetti Sauce
1 (24 oz.) Jar Garlic Alfredo Sauce
1 lb. spaghetti noodles
1 pound of ground beef
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup milk (2% or higher)
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried parsley

Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions. Rinse cooked noodles under cold water and drain very well.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) Spray 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine alfredo sauce, mozzarella, milk, oregano and parsley.
Stir well to combine. Add cooked spaghetti noodles and toss to coat them completely. Place entire mixture into baking dish Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 30 minutes.

While it cooks, start browning your ground beef in a medium sauce pan.
Once beef is brown and crumbled, drain well to remove excess grease.
Over low heat add spaghetti sauce and mix. Put cover over sauce pan and allow the mixture to keep warm until pasta is ready.

After pasta is finished cooking, remove foil and allow to cool for 8-10 minutes.

Unless you are completely impatient like me. Then you just cut out a slice and pour spaghetti sauce mixture on top, sprinkle with a bit of Parmesan cheese ,if you like, and then dig in.

How many of you have heard of the restaurant, Cheddar's?  That is where I first heard of Spasagna.  It took me a couple of times before I could pronounce it.  You can get it with meat or without on their menu.  I make mine with ground chicken or ground turkey instead of beef.  Try it if you are a pasta lover like me!

Thank you for stopping by.
