Million Dollar Spaghetti

Spaghetti brings up memories of my childhood. I spent summer days at my grandparent’s house where my grandmother would make her famous spaghetti almost once a week. She made the sauce herself and let it simmer all morning on the stove. It was my favorite. Spaghetti is definitely my comfort food. If I’m feeling homesick, spaghetti is what I need to make me feel better.

That being said, I’m somewhat of a spaghetti snob. Unless it’s my grandmother’s recipe, I usually don’t like it. I guess you could say I got a wild hair because I decided to try a new recipe and, let me tell you, I am sooo glad that I did.

 This recipe is definitely a keeper. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my grandmother’s recipe, but when I’m short on time and don’t want to spend all morning making spaghetti, this is the recipe I pull out to make.

Heat your oven up to 350 and boil your noodles. While the noodles are boiling, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, and cottage cheese. Place half of the noodles in a casserole dish (mine is a 7.5 x 11) and pour the cream cheese mixture on top. Spread evenly. 

Put the other half of your noodles on top of the cream cheese mixture and then pour your spaghetti sauce on top of the noodles.  

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, pour mozzarella cheese on top and bake for another 15 minutes. 

Serve and enjoy!
