Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

Do you have a recipe that you are always making small changes to? That is me and my spaghetti bake – though my family loves it ( I posted this recipe before back in the day) I never have been 100% happy with the look and taste.

I would say the taste is a solid 9/10 but the look is more of a 7/10 for me

I am thinking about trying this recipe again but using a homemade alfredo sauce – what do you think? My dad thinks that it would be WAY too much dairy

I would love to know what you think 🙂
