Today I want to propose you this scrumptious pasta treat. Italian baked spaghetti wheel from Ginny's call for help from my Facebook page...

Ginny told me about her story of when she met with her Italian friend.

One day she was invited by this friend at home for lunch and she was amazed by the offering of a baked spaghetti wheel made in a  casserole.

Now after many years Ginny wanted to make by her self this scrumptious treat, she tried hard but could never replicate such dish.

Today I'm very glad that Imma from Naples submited for Ginny and all of us this Italian baked recipe named "timballo di spaghetti".

Here you can find all the ingredients and preparation mode and realize all the care Imma put into this recipe.
