An everyday or any day pasta entrée- It is an easy to make and a crowd pleaser.
1 lb. uncooked spaghetti, broken into thirds
1 cup non-dairy (parve) rice or soy milk
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
2 pounds ground beef

2 small onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves – minced, or ½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup green peppers, chopped
2 jars (24 ounces each ) marinara sauce
Optional: 1 package Daiya parve mozzarella cheese
Cook spaghetti al dente - according to package directions; drain well. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, Italian seasoning and salt. Add spaghetti; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. or larger baking dish.
In a large pan, sauté beef, sausage, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium flame until meat is cooked and no longer pink; drain.
Stir in 1 jar of the Marinara sauce. Reserve half of 2nd jar to top the spaghetti.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes until sizzling hot.
Optional: Sprinkle with the parve Daiya cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer or until melted. Allow to stand, loosely covered about 5-10 minutes before serving
Optional: Add some fresh peeled tomatoes, grilled eggplant; top with toasted bread crumbs. Serve with garlic bread and an Italian salad.
For a dairy or vegetarian version: omit the meat products and use parve meat crumbles (such as Morningstar Farms) and dairy mozzarella cheese for the topping.
