Baked Spaghetti

I had some left over spaghetti noodles in the fridge when I came across a recipe for Baked Spaghetti. Tweaking the recipe to use what I had in the pantry, I came up with this.

It is easy to make, delicious, and freeze well if needed. I think it will be a good idea to make 2 batches and freeze one for later.
