I grew up with my mom making “macarona bil furun” which is Arabic for spaghetti in the oven or spaghetti casserole. And basically the recipe entailed cooking spaghetti, making a chunky meat sauce on the stovetop and then mixing them together and baking in the oven. This Easy Baked Spaghetti is a variation of that hearty comforting recipe from my childhood but more simplified!

1 pound spaghetti not cooked
¼ cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves minced
1/2 onion thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
14.5 oz diced tomatoes
½ cup sliced green pepper
½ cup sliced red pepper
3 cups water
2 cups marinara
2 sprigs basil plus torn leaves for garnish
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Grated parmesan cheese for serving

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the uncooked spaghetti in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Add the olive oil, garlic, onions, Italian seasoning and salt. Uses your hands to gently toss and evenly distribute the ingredients.
Add the tomatoes, peppers, water, marinara and basil on top of the spaghetti, and toss it again using tongs to evenly coat the spaghetti with the sauce and vegetables.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top to cover the spaghetti.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 45 – 55 minutes or until the top is browned and bubbly.
Remove from the oven, garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese and serve
