I don't know what has happened to the weather here, but is suddenly all stormy and when it is cold I always crave cheesy pasta!
This Salami Spaghetti Casserole ticks all the boxes for me- comfort food, adaptable to gluten free and delicious!
The cooked spaghetti is mixed with oregano, garlic, eggs and milk to create the base of the dish.
Layers of cheese, pasta sauce and salami are layered on top of the spaghetti and then the casserole is baked in the oven to get the gooey melted cheese stage.
We love this casserole served with simple steamed vegetables and garlic bread!
