Mexican Baked Spaghetti

Mexican Baked Spaghetti is a new twist on the classic Italian dish, spaghetti and meat sauce. This dish is easy and delicious. Serve with whichever toppings your family likes best on tacos. You can easily substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. Another option is to use half ground beef or ground turkey and half chorizo sausage for a spicier version.
