Baked Tuscan Spaghetti Casserole


My daughter made this last night as a pre-valentine’s meal for the family. It was quite delicious. Of course it was a pasta and meat dish because she loves anything pasta and meat. It was a nice treat to have  her cook for us.  It is really nice that she interested in learning how to cook.  She is my helper in the kitchen.
