Baked Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce is an all-time favourite pasta preparation that appeals to all with its simple yet tangy flavour. Here, the spaghetti is cooked in a flavourful tomato sauce, garnished with cheese, and baked till perfectly done.

When making tomato-based sauces for pastas, it is good to add a dash of cream as given in this recipe, because it improves the mouth-feel and also balances the flavour of the sauce so the tanginess does not get overwhelming. You will find the Baked Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce quite convenient to prepare on any day, because it uses only everyday ingredients and it also quite easy to make.

Serve with plain Toasted Triangles or Garlicky Corn, Tomato and Cheese Toast or you can top it with some Cheesy Potato Balls or Broccoli and Potato Balls and enjoy it as a satiating one-dish meal.
