Baked Spaghetti

We’ve all heard of pasta bake, but how many of us have tried it with spaghetti? In terms of cost, this can often prove even better value with spaghetti being slightly cheaper. We’ve gone for a basic tomato and mozzarella variety, but like all good pasta bakes, you can add whatever you like to the mix, such as mince, chorizo, pancetta or mushrooms.
