In a big pot boil water for spaghetti noodles

Drain water from pot
Take a roasting pan and place sauce mixture at bottom. (small layer)
Add noodles to top of mixture
Place rest of sauce on top

*** If you are using for freezer meal. Don't cook in oven until you are using it for a meal. Just wrap pan in aluminum foil. Mark the top so you know when and what it is and then place in fridge to cool down before placing in freezer. You will need to cook it without the cheese. Then add the cheese the last 10 minutes. Cook at 350oF for 35 minutes. (stir a few times to make sure it is thawed.) then add cheese.
I don’t know about you, but I often look for easy and quick recipes online to help when I want to make something the kitchen. I like finding recipes based on products that I already have on hand. It is a bonus if it is a healthy recipe also.
My blogger friend from Akamatra has a recipe that you will enjoy.
