This easy, baked spaghetti stuffed garlic bread makes a great family dinner!
16 oz Italian bread loaf – Butter & garlic powder for bread
1 lb ground beef – 1 lb ground sausage – 16 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste – 1 medium onion, diced – 7 oz uncooked spaghetti
1/2 C Parmesan cheese, divided in half – 1/2 tsp minced garlic
2/3 C Mozzarella cheese, divided in half – 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt + a pinch – 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning, generous.
When brown, drain off any excess fat and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, paste, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt & pepper. Mix well. Simmer for 5-8 minutes. Add cooked pasta. Mix well again and remove from heat.
When the bread is toasted, spoon the prepared spaghetti & meat sauce into the hollow of each half, filling the hollows completely. Top with cheeses- 1 of the divided halves of the cheeses for one loaf and one for the other.
Bake at 375° for 15-20 or until cheese is melted and golden. Remove from oven and gently cut with a bread knife to serve.
