This is my favorite!!!! And your pictures looked so great that I'm totally craving for this comfort food. When we go to Asian cafe, people order some Chinese dish, but I'm ALWAYS 100% order this dish. :-D I cook it at home too but I can't eat enough. Yours look delicious! I have to ask you one thing... I signed up for email subscription, but I "think" I accidentally delete the last step (that I have to click to confirm). Now when I try to subscribe they say I'm already subscribing... Is there any way you can undo my submission? Thanks in advance!

divya said...

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Look at that generous pile of cheese! I like! My kids loved spaghetti too and we tried eating it with Parmasan cheese but not baked with mozzarella before. Will try it next round, thanks!

Mimosa said...

I don't know we can bake the spaghetti, you give me a brand new idea to cook it for my kids, sure they will love it, thanks for sharing.

Nami @ Just One Cookbook said...

Thanks Sonia! I re-subscribe it and now it should be working! Thanks!

Barbara said...

My father used to look at a casserole I made and said: is there any food under all that cheese?" So you know how much I'd love this dish! I posted my mother's baked spaghetti recipe quite a while back, but she used cheddar, oddly enough.
Your dish looks perfect!

Min said...
