Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti Casserole Recipe

this was the best thing we ate last week.  It was quick and delicious!!  I saw a version of this on Pinterest.  It looked so good that I had to add it to the menu ASAP!



You probably have everything you need to make this pasta dish in your pantry right now.  This can be made ahead of time and baked when you are ready. I love these kinds of dishes.  The pasta was really creamy and wonderful!  We both absolutely loved it.  It was even better the next day at lunch.  This will be going into our usual dinner rotation!
