  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 green bell pepper, (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil , (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning , (or use dried basil)
  • 32 oz marinara sauce
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • cups shredded mozzarella cheese, (add more according to your liking)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook the ground beef and onion for 2 minutes (drain any fat if needed). Add Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, diced green bell pepper, Italian seasoning, and garlic for 5 minutes or until the meat is well browned and the vegetables are tender.
  • Add marinara sauce and tomato sauce into the skillet. Lower the heat, simmer the sauce and stirring frequently for about 7 minutes. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
  • While you're waiting, cook the pasta in salted boiling water until it's undercooked (firmer than al-dented) and drain it well. Add the spaghetti into the sauce. Stir for 1-2 minutes.
  • In a greased 13x9 inch baking dish, place half of the spaghetti mixture. Top with ½ cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese. Place the other half of the spaghetti mixture and top with the remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.


You can store the leftover baked pasta in shallow airtight containers. Properly stored, it can last 3-5 days in the fridge or up to 3 months in the freezer.
