Anyway, I semi-doubled the spaghetti so it looked like this right out of the oven:
It was fabulous! The author of this recipe is actually Bobby Deen, Paula "I love butter" Deen's son. He traded up ingredients from his mom's original baked spaghetti to make a flavorful yet less caloric version. Apparently Bobby also has a new show on the Cooking Channel-- if I had cable I'd definitely tune in since this next gen chef knows what he's doing. Definitely some tastypants food.
My favorite ingredients are the fresh cremini mushrooms, fresh basil, green peppers, and chicken sausage. I'd never cooked with chicken sausage before so this was another cooking first. Thank you FNM.
And if you're DYING to try this recipe... send me a message and we'll work something out.
