We start off 5 Days of Pasta with this delicious and super easy baked spaghetti. When I asked you all what you would like to see 5 Days of, I had an over whelming response with pasta and then the second was cheese. So I give you 5 Days of cheesy pastas.
This would be a great way to use leftover pasta too. I have incorporated an Epicure dip mix into the middle layer and you can easily purchase this if you are in Canada from my website here. If you are not from here you can substitute another onion dip mix, it gives some nice flavor to that layer and it is easy. Enjoy!!
