BBQ Baked Spaghetti

This baked spaghetti is jazzed up with BBQ sauce, ground beef or turkey, and vegetables. It’s as cheesy and delicious as it sounds!

Ben and I are HUGE baked pasta people. If we ate baked pasta as much as we wanted to, we would probably be huge. Haha! šŸ™‚ Anyways… this BBQ Baked Spaghetti is awesome and I wish I had some to enjoy right now!

I got the recipe from one of the first food blogs I ever started reading–Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. Everything I make from her blog is just delicious, family friendly, and wonderful. This baked pasta dish is no exception. It’s cheesy pasta goodness that no one can resist, even though BBQ and spaghetti may not be the first food combination that you would think of when brainstorming for dinner. It’s a unique dinner that you’ll want to make again and again.

Like I do with a lot of baked pasta dishes, I made this dinner a day or soĀ before I wanted to eat it. If you cover it and stick it in the fridge, it’s an easy homemade convenience dinner for later in the week! This pasta dish kind of reminded me of the ubiquitous BBQ burgers I seeĀ allĀ over Nashville–except a more carblicious rendering of that.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound spaghetti noodles
  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups bbq sauce [I like Sweet Baby Ray’s]
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar or colby jack cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to boil and then cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Meanwhile, brown ground beef or turkey in a large skillet set over medium heat. While meat is browning, add green pepper and onion. Cook until tender, then drain grease if necessary. Return pan to heat and add garlic powder, bbq sauce, and tomato sauce. Cook over medium heat until hot.

Combine spaghetti with sauce mixture. Stir in half the cheese, then spread into prepared pan. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 30 minutes until hot and cheese is bubbly.

    • Haha I know. I can make bbq sauce but this one is just SO GOOD! Don’t even get me started on HFCS…I can hardly find any jams/jellies that don’t have it, even some of the natural ones… (fortunately the low sugar ones at trader joe’s are just made with sugar). makes me so mad!

  2. It’s odd. Just a couple of days ago I ran across something about baked spaghetti. I thought you know it’s been years since I have had recipe for that. I had forgotten about it. I put it on my mental list to check is out ‘some day’. Well bingo here it popped up right in front of my eyes two days later. Must be fate that I make it. Ha!
