Baked spaghetti is incredible on its own, but adding cream cheese to it takes it to a whole different level. I love cream cheese anyway, and it gives this wonderful casserole a special, delicious flavor. This Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti is a family favorite, and we’ve been making this for a while now. It is in our daily rotation of dinner, and we all love this. How can a hearty, meaty spaghetti and cheese casserole go wrong? You just couldn’t. Try it out, and you’ll love it just as much as we do.
