World's Easiest Baked Spaghetti Parmesan Recipe
My boys love spaghetti.

So much so that they would eat it every week if they could!

I’m afraid they would eventually get tired of their favorite dish so luckily I have found different ways to present it.

AND different ways to sneak some healthy bits into it!

Today I’m going to share my recipe for the World’s Easiest Baked Spaghetti Parmesan.

With any great spaghetti dish is the need for a great sauce, and I have found that in Ragu.

Did I mention my two little boys?

I don’t have time to make my own spaghetti sauce from scratch (I have tried it before – it takes some time!), so I use the next best thing and trust Ragu to make my spaghetti dishes positively delicious.

I love sneaking veggies into my dinners.

The Ragu sauce I use for my baked spaghetti Parmesan is the Old World Style Traditional.

It just so happens to contain 2 servings of vegetables in every 1/2 cup!

For my traditional spaghetti dish I like to use Ragu Chunky Garden Combination.

My boys would never know they were eating carrots in their spaghetti!

And all Ragu sauces hold the same standards of farm grown ingredients, no artificial flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup. That’s something this mom can stand behind!

I also love the story behind Ragu. Assunta, an Italian immigrant to the US, arrived in 1914 to New York and by the Great Depression was starting to sell her homemade pasta to help support her family. It became so popular that the Ragu Packing Company was formed. You can read more about it and grab some delicious recipes at the Ragu website.

In the meantime, here is my World’s Easiest Baked Spaghetti Parmesan recipe!

We've always wanted to try baked spaghetti. I think following this recipe we would love it! I've never seen one that calls for cream cheese, but I bet it makes it rich and creamy.
