Spaghetti Stuffed Garlic Bread

Well here we are…back to Monday. I’m not sure how I feel about Mondays anymore. I used to hate them because it meant another week of work, but now that I ‘work from home’ and am a full time mother to a {crazy, insane, hyper} 3 year old, the days don’t really matter anymore. I’m always running around, running errands, cooking, cleaning, disciplining {yes, I know…contrary to popular belief my child isn’t perfect….shocking, I know} and doing everything else in between.

I don’t know about you other super moms but 98% of the time my brain feels fried. This may explain my aversion to listening to the news, conversing in intelligent conversations and reading anything other than celebrity gossip. Yeah. I’m a college grad that hates to read, pays no attention to worldly surroundings and thrives on People and US weekly.

Where’s Iran? In the Middle East perhaps…??? Why should I care about what’s happening in the Middle East? I’m not quite sure, but speaking of Iran, check out these cupcakes! –>TRUTH.

Just keeping it real, folks.

Anyways, this is all leading to something. What specifically, I’m not quite sure.

But this dinner is one of those meals where you can zone out while cooking it and have it still turn out delicious. Overall, this meal took me about 30 minutes to throw together and everyone loved it. My daughter said “Wow Mom this is good! I love spaghetti!”–> funny thing about this is usually she hates spaghetti. Pretty sure the buttery garlic bread won her over. #butterloverforever

The Alexia frozen garlic baguettes I used went directly from the freezer to the oven and cooked up crunchy on the outside and chewy and delicious on the inside. I almost didn’t stuff it chock full of spaghetti because it smelled and looked so good. But then I did and covered the whole thing with cheese. I do it because I can. Super yummy, ridiculously easy and really simple for us moms who share the fried brain syndrome.

Here’s how you make it:

Bread Loafs

First things first: grab your Alexia Garlic Baguettes out of the freezer and pop them into the oven. No need to defrost or let rise! Just toss it into the oven. My kind of bread 🙂

Ground Beef

Then brown up some ground beef. I think this is 90/10…or something like that.

Ground Beef

Drain it and set aside.

Sauteing Onions

Saute some onions and garlic in a little olive oil until tender, about 3 minutes or so….

spaghetti

then toss in some jarred marinara, water, basil, oregano, sugar, salt, pepper, bay leaf and broken spaghetti pieces.

spaghetti in sauce

Stir it all up and cover. The spaghetti will soak up the water and cook pretty fast.

Cooked bread

Now’s about the time that bread should be done. Isn’t it purdy? Mmm….garlic bread 🙂

Spaghetti Stuffed Garlic Bread

After the spaghetti is all cooked and the sauce is really thick, stuff it in between each piece of bread and top with a little cheese.

Bake for a few minutes until it gets toasty and melty and that’s it!

servings 4 servings
Prep Time 25 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 package Alexia Frozen Garlic Bread Baguettes 2 per package
  • 1/2 lb ground beef I used 90/10...I think
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup jarred marinara sauce
  • 1 cup water + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup broken spaghetti pieces
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Place frozen garlic bread onto baking sheet and bake according to package directions.
  • While the bread is baking, start by cooking the ground beef in a large skillet until browned. Pour onto paper towels to drain off excess fat.
  • Place hot skillet back over the heat and sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until tender, 3-5 minutes. Pour browned beef back into pan along with marinara, water, dried spaghetti, sugar and seasonings. Stir together to coat spaghetti in sauce and cover. Reduce heat to medium low. Stir after 5 minutes. Replace lid and cook another 3-5 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked to your liking. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • By now the garlic bread should be out of the oven and cooling. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the spaghetti mixture in between each slice of garlic bread. If you have any leftovers, you can save it for another day or really stuff your garlic bread. Sprinkle each loaf with parmesan cheese and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until your cheese has melted. Remove from oven and serve.

    What the what!? Toooootally want this right now in front of my face. With my DVR, and perhaps a beer. Don’t judge me!

  2. Katie @ Blonde Ambition

    What a fun idea! This sounds messy…But like, the best kind of messy.

    I care about current events, but I was an international relations major and studied abroad, so I don’t think that’ll ever change!

  3. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau

    Oh, my. I am head-over-heels in love with this recipe. I’ve seen spaghetti stuffed pizza before, but the garlic bread is genius!!

  4. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

    I so need this in my life – what a crazy fun idea! I always make garlic bread with spaghetti, why not just put them together!
    And I am so with you on the fried brain, living on People and celebrity gossip. It is all I can handle!

  5. Linda

    Lauren – you’re a genius! I love how simple, quick, and no mess recipe like this. And that Alexia Garlic Baguettes definitely won my heart. Lovely!

  6. From Valerie's Kitchen

    I like the way you think. We always dip the bread in the spaghetti so you might was well just bake it right in there! I so relate to the fried brain syndrome. After years of research I have found that nothing cures this better than diving into the new issue of Us Weekly while having a pedicure.

  7. Bri Snell

    This looks delicious. But my question, how do you eat it? Fingers? fork? I just see it being a huge mess. lol. but a huge delicious yummy mess.

  8. Anna @ hiddenponies

    This looks so fun, I would definitely be treated like super mom if I make this…especially if I let my kids do the `stuffing“ step.

    I had to look through and see if I made the comment before… but this is one of our faves for about 2 yrs now. I loooove that you cook the noodles and sauce in one pot- learned something new doing that. I looooove that we always have leftovers b/c stuffing pasta in bread makes it fill you up faster. I loooove that it’s so simple YET sooooo tasty! YUM!
