Baked Spaghetti

This was, and still is, a family favorite in my home growing up. It seems a little weird to put french fried onion rings on a spaghetti recipe BUT it makes the dish! Seriously! You have to try it! This is a great recipe for making ahead and tossing in the oven when your family is ready to eat.
