Everyone loves spaghetti for dinner, and this easy dinner idea, for Baked Spaghetti Pie, will become a family favorite. When I was a little girl, we did not eat spaghetti a lot. Maybe it was because my mother always insisted on making meatballs with it and that took a lot of time, or maybe it was because we were Irish and she just preferred to make stew recipes. In any case, when we got spaghetti, it was one of our best nights at the dinner table. One of our favorite games was to suck up individual noodles to see who was the fastest at getting the noodle into our mouths. Of course, the noodles always swayed and snapped and sprayed tomato sauce everywhere. My father would get so mad, but we kids would just laugh and laugh and laugh (maybe that is why we didn’t get spaghetti as often as we would have liked). In any case, though, those nights were full of fun and very filling dinners.

The ingredients you will need for this spaghetti recipe are ones you might already have in the house. You will need spaghetti, lean ground beef, spaghetti sauce, and monterey jack cheese.

Whether you use ground beef for hamburgers, meatloaf recipes, or taco night, ground beef is one of the most popular ways that beef is sold, and for a good reason. While ground beef is inexpensive and usually seen as a budget cut of meat, ground beef is go-to for many classic American food ideas. So you might wonder which type of ground beef is the best to buy. The following are just some of the choices you will have when it comes to buying ground beef. You will come across different cuts of beef, the fat content, and even the coarseness of the beef grind that can vary. Regular ground beef usually contains the highest fat content, with about 25 to 30 percent, since the ground beef is cut from the trimmings of inexpensive cuts such as brisket and shank. Regular ground beef is the least expensive form of ground beef that you can buy, and while it has the most flavor, the ground beef will shrink the most when it is cooked because of its high-fat content. This cut of ground beef is the juiciest and most flavorful. Ground chuck contains 15 to 20 percent fat and comes from the front area of the animal around the shoulder. This cut of beef is great all-purpose ground beef since it is not as fatty as regular ground beef, but it still has good flavor. Ground chuck can also be labeled as lean ground beef.
