Million $$$ Spaghetti Bake

I love spaghetti.  I mean really really love it. I've seen this recipe on Pinterest dozens of times so I decided to give it a try.
I even have another spaghetti bake recipe posted here on the blog: Square Spaghetti.
Although slightly similar the 2 recipes each have different ingredients that make them unique.
Give this recipe a try!



MILLION $$$ SPAGHETTI BAKE


1 lb. ground beef
1 (24 oz.)jar of spaghetti sauce
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sour cream
1 c. cottage cheese
1/2 c. butter 
1 (16 oz.) pkg. spaghetti 
1 1/2-2 c. mozzarella  cheese

Instructions:
Preheat your oven to 350°. In a large stockpot cook the pasta according to package directions until al denti. Drain and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream and cottage cheese; cream together with an electric hand mixer.
Saute your ground beef until no longer pink; add the jar of spaghetti sauce and heat through.
Place a few pats of butter (about 1/2 of the stick) in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.
Pour 1/2 of the spaghetti into the bottom of the baking dish and spread the cream cheese mix over the top of the noodles.
Pour the remaining noodles over the cheese mix, add the remaining butter in small pat's (like you did in the beginning).
Pour the sauce over the entire top and spread evenly.


Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 30 min.  Remove dish from oven, sprinkle the grated cheese over the top and return to the oven for 15 min.


Allow the dish to stand for 10 min. before serving. Sprinkle each serving with a little Parmesan cheese if desired.

Well, that sounds divine! A nice alternative for a crowd... is it hard to spread the cream cheese over the spaghetti?

@The Seana Method, After you mix the cream cheese, sour cream, and cottage cheese together, pop it into the microwave for 20-30 seconds. It will spread easily. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
