French Spaghetti


Oh gosh…please forgive this picture! It has to be one of the worst I’ve taken. I’m a little embarrassed to put it on here. But listen…don’t judge this recipe by the picture! YOU WILL LOVE THIS DISH!! It’s so delicious. A combo of red sauce and white sauce – don’t pass this one up. I’ve actually made this a lot lately. It’s the perfect dish to have when you are expecting a large group cause it goes a long way. And the leftovers are to die for! Every time I make it for a bunch of people I get requests for the recipe. It even freezes very well. We made it one year for our family reunion – made it several days before and froze them and reheated them in the oven. I also have made it early in the day, put it in the fridge and then baked it later that night. Now of course it’s going to be the best using my homemade spaghetti sauce and guiltless alfredo, but if you’re in a bind, you can sub whatever you need. So we agree…you’re not going to judge the recipe on the picture and you WILL make it!

1 lb spaghetti

1 recipe Aunties Spaghetti Sauce found here (Or your favorite jar of spaghetti sauce) – which I definitely recommend because it has ground beef in it and the combo of beef and sausage is a awesome.

1 lb Jimmy Dean ground sausage

1 recipe Guiless Alfredo Sauce found here (or your favorite recipe)

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta and place in a 9x13 pan. Pour Guiltless Alfredo Sauce over pasta. Sprinkle sausage on top. Spread spaghetti sauce on top and garnish with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. If you’re on the ball, you’ll already have some of Aunties Spaghetti sauce in the freezer, ready to go. Then it’s just as easy as whipping up the Alfredo sauce, layering up the casserole and baking it. ALWAYS a family favorite.
