  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic or garlic powder

Meat Sauce

  • 1 pounds Ground Round or beef
  • garlic salt or salt to taste
  • 2 jars Marinara Sauce, 24 ounce jars I use one spicy and one wine based
  • 1 jar Pizza Sauce

Instructions

Meat Sauce

  • In a skillet, season ground round or beef with garlic salt, to taste and cook until done about 5 to 7 minutes. Add marinara and pizza sauce. Let simmer while making Alfredo Sauce

Alfredo Sauce

  • In a skillet over medium heat melt butter. Add in parmesan cheese and whisk together. Slowly add in cream until combined. Next add Italian seasoning and garlic and whisk until combined. 
  • Beat egg in a bowl or measuring cup. Add in a little of the sauce to to the egg to temper. Slowly add into skillet and whisk until combined. This will thicken the Alfredo Sauce. Turn down to low. Let simmer while assembling casserole.

Pasta

  • Salt Pasta water to taste and Cook pasta according to package instructions to "al dente". About 8 to 9 minutes. Drain.

Baked Spaghetti Layers

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In 9 X 13 or Casserole Dish. Layer bottom of dish with about 1/3 of Meat Sauce on the bottom. Add 1/2 of pasta. Pour on Alfredo sauce on top off pasta. Next add the remaining pasta. Pour the remaining meat sauce. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove and add mozarella cheese on top and bake for 15 more minutes or until melted and golden. I like to broil mine a minute or 2.
