Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. A deep 11 x 7-inch dish works well, but you can also use a 13 x 9-inch dish.
Heat olive oil in a large skilled over medium-high heat. Sauté onion until just tender, about 5 min. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink.
Drain fat from skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce and season with salt & pepper, to taste.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain.
Add cooked spaghetti and 1 cup of the shredded cheese to the meat sauce and stir.
Pour into baking dish. Top with remaining ½ cup shredded cheese.
Bake, covered, for about 25 min. Uncover; bake until cheese is bubbly, 5-10 min. longer.
