Baked Spaghetti


A very similar dish to lasagna or lasagne…This recipe belongs to the family of tomato base pasta such as Classic Spaghetti, Pinoy Spaghetti and many more….Filipinos tastebuds is more on the sweet side of the pasta rather than the authentic Italian pasta which is the sour side. So I put lots of cheese on it.. . Cooking spaghetti really depends on your taste, no matter sweet or sour, as long as you made it with passion and love, the end results will surely be great. How about your spaghetti? ………..Did you know that baked spaghetti’s primary ingredients are tomatoes.  We all know that tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, but did you know that it is also loaded with vitamin C? …. Some studies conducted have discovered that men who consumed 10 servings of tomatoes a week, or the equivalent to eating 5 tomato pasta base a week , can cut the risk of developing prostate cancer?….
