BBQ Spaghetti Bake - The Southern Lady Cooks

Looking for an easy weeknight dinner? This is it! This easy pasta bake takes no time to put together and is so good. You can use any flavor of bbq sauce that your family likes. I’ve used hickory, honey, and mesquite and all were fantastic. If you happen to have leftovers, they reheat great! Add our easy garlic cheese biscuits.

Ingredients Needed for BBQ Spaghetti Bake:

Spaghetti noodles

Ground beef

Green pepper


Minced garlic

Liquid smoke

Worcestershire sauce

BBQ sauce

Tomato sauce

Shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Notes: You could easily make this dish with ground turkey or ground pork. My family likes cheddar cheese but you can use cheese your family enjoys.
