16 oz box Barilla Plus Thin Spaghetti
2 jars Barilla Basilico Tomato and Basil Sauce
2 lbs 93% lean ground beef
15 slices pepperoni, chopped
1 8oz pkg 1/3 less fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
5 oz shredded mozerella
1 Cup grated parmesan, divided
1 green pepper diced
1 yellow onion diced
5 cloves garlic minced
1/2 C milk
2 tsp basil, divided
fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
You may want to cut this recipe in half. I made a BIG turkey roaster pan 1/2 full with these ingredients.
Brown ground beef, add 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp parsley, 1 tsp paprika, a pinch of salt and a few cranks of freshly grinded pepper. Drain fat and add chopped onion, green pepper and garlic.
Meanwhile bring a pot of water to boil and cook the spaghetti until al dente, about 9 minutes.
Once onion is soft and fragrant, add 1.5 jars of the sauce. Reserve 1/2 jar for lining the pan. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer about 5-10 min.
Drain cooked pasta. Return to pan. Add cream cheese and stir so it melts with the hot pasta. Add milk, stir to blend. Add 1 tsp basil, 0.5 cup grated parmesan, a pinch of salt and a few more cranks of freshly ground pepper. Let it sit to cool for a few minutes, then add the 2 eggs and mix until fully incorporated.
Pour reserved 1/2 jar of pasta sauce into pan and rotate pan to coat entire bottom.
Pour noodles into pan and distribute evenly, top with meat/sauce mixture. Sprinkle remaining 0.5 cup of Parmesan, then chopped pepperoni, then 5 oz shredded mozzerela
Bake at 350 for approx 45 minutes uncovered.
Serving Size: 1/16 of a half full big turkey roaster pan.
