Classic Baked Spaghetti

baked spaghetti
Classic Baked Spaghetti is reborn with fresh zucchini noodles and veggie crumbles in a savory tomato sauce served up with lots of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. This is one of my wife’s favorites, it’s hardy and satisfying. Four star comfort food, sit down, shut up and tuck in. We use spiral cut zucchini for pasta and a meat substitute like BOCA. However, you can use pasta and ground beef or turkey. Either way, we recommend copious amounts of fresh grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling.
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 10oz. fresh button mushrooms, diced
  • 12oz bag of BOCA crumbles
  • 28oz can fire roasted tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 TBS oregano
  • 1-2 large zucchini, spiral sliced
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 10oz can mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

    Add olive oil to your Dutch oven and sauté the red bell pepper, onions, mushrooms and BOCA crumbles until soft. Add the tomatoes and oregano, simmer for 10-minutes uncovered.

    While your pot simmers, spiral slice the zucchini and grate the cheddar cheese.

    Cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole pan with zucchini spirals, then add a layer of “meat” sauce then a layer of cheese. Then start over, layering zucchini, “meat” sauce and cheese.

    Top with the mushroom soup, sprinkle with Parmesan and bake for 1-hour.

Notes

You can easily substitute a pound of lean ground beef (or ground turkey) for the BOCA crumbles.
