Bacon Spaghetti Casserole

Bacon Spaghetti Casserole

I made this dish last night for supper. It got thumbs up from all. The bacon adds a nice twist to this baked spaghetti dish. In a hurry? Skip the baking step; plate noodles, top with sauce and sprinkle with cheese.

Bacon Spaghetti Casserole

8-ounces dried spaghetti, cooked according to package directions
8 slices bacon, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 (26.5 to 32-ounce) container spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar or Italian cheese blend

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan, crumble and set aside.
Pour bacon grease from pan, but leave bacon bits and residue.
Brown meat, onion and pepper in pan where bacon was cooked; drain when done.
Return cooked beef mixture to skillet; add spaghetti sauce and bacon. Simmer ten minutes.
Pour sauce over cooked spaghetti noodles, tossing to coat well.
Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish.
Cover dish with foil and bake until hot and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
Remove foil, sprinkle with cheese and continue to bake until cheese is melted.
