{ Entertaining with Simple Spaghetti Bake }

Hey guys!! I'm sharing a super quick & simple recipe that ANYBODY can make  without using hamburgers & hot dogs this memorial day weekend!! I had a huge leftover loaf of bread from church so I had to come up with a thrifty & delicious recipe right?! We're just like most, we love having little barbeque's & enjoying the company, but entertaining for some can be hectic & downright flustering!! We've all  been there before..you're having people over & you reach for the hot dogs & hamburgers...right?! It's just natural to reach for easy outdoor food that most EVERYBODY likes! We're no different then the next couple  { Well, I am, I eat veggie burgers } but you get the picture ha-ha! Instead of the same thing, I'm sharing SIMPLE SPAGHETTI BAKE . Bonus it's super thrifty, yummy & fast, and who doesn't like spaghetti??

................................................................................................




.................................Things You'll Need................................

.1 can of 5 cheese sauce
.1 box noodles
.1 small bottle of V8- use 2 cups
. 1/2 lb beef
.1 stick of butter
. Olive oil
. 1 large loaf of bread { Ours is from Panera }
. 3 tablespoons of garlic powder
. 2 teaspoons of salt
.1 bag parmesan cheese
. 1 Tablespoon of onion powder
.1 pinch black pepper
.1 pinch red pepper
.1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
.1 tablespoon olive oil

Note: You can add any ingredients you like, fresh veggies, more spices etc..

................................................Recipe......................................

Start cooking the 3/4 box of noodles, adding a few pinches of salt to the water. Next get the meat { If you're using beef } to start browning in a pan { 1/2 a lb }. Grab a mixing bowl & start combining the above ingredients! Once the meat is browned, drain & add to the sauce mix with all the above ingredients! Next drain the noodles & cut with kitchen sheers into about 4 inch pieces!  Combine ALL ingredients into the mixing bowl & add the cheese of choice! Next take the bread loaf & cut down the middle & scoop out all the excess bread filling on both the top & bottom! This will make a 'cove' for the beef spaghetti mix! Fill the bread loaf & top with more Parmesan cheese & 3-4 little round scoops of butter & close! Bake for 25-45 minutes on 400 degrees! 


Once the loaf is done you can pop the top off & cut the bottom up into sections. The top now becomes crispy buttered bread to scoop up the leftover sauce goodness on your plate! Hence the reason why we added some butter on top of the mixture & then closed it. This is the easiest recipe & can be modified to your liking . We actually used veggie beef crumbles!! With a few staple ingredients you can feed an army a delicious hassle free Italian dinner! 

Have a happy & healthy long weekend everyone! Please remember to give a blessing & BIG THANK YOU to all our TROOPS & VETERANS this memorial day weekend!
