Imagine the surprise on everyone's faces when you tell them you're serving "cake" for dinner! Our Baked Spaghetti "Cake" is a tasty spaghetti dinner, that's baked in a springform pan (giving it its cake-like shape). It's loaded with lots of crumbled sausage, cheese, and fresh veggies. Not only is it a fun way to serve spaghetti to the family, but it's absolutely delicious too! 

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 1 pound spaghetti, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage, onion, and green pepper 6 to 8 minutes or until browned and vegetables are soft; drain liquid. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, and 1 cup spaghetti sauce; mix well. Add sausage mixture and spaghetti, and toss until evenly coated. Spoon evenly into pan and top with remaining 1 cup spaghetti sauce.
  4. Bake 50 minutes, then spinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let sit 10 minutes before slicing into wedges. 

Serving Suggestion

Serve this alongside our All Wrapped Up Garlic Bread to give your family even more to cheer about!

My family and I loved this recipe!

Love these recipes as they're easily modified to suit what's on hand in my kitchen. Didn't have ricotta and a trip to store wasn't happening. So I subbed cottage cheese, as I've done before in eggplant parm dishes. The 'cake' shape of this dish went over well with the kids and adults alike. Second time I made it I skipped the cake pan and served as a spaghetti 'casserole' dish. Thanks again!
