We are huge, major,jumbo pasta eaters.

Everyone likes it, it’s quick and let’s face I can buy a good size box of pasta (even the whole wheat version!) at a reasonable price and it feeds all of us for dinner and we can still have leftovers.

Whatever makes things a little easier at times, right?

Baked spaghetti is my usual go-to pasta casserole-type dish. I have to say..this was much more than that.

Here are a few notes:

  •  You start with cooked spaghetti, not dry. We usually use regular, but, whole wheat spaghetti will work too.
  • When beating your cream cheese/cottage cheese/sour cream mixture, be sure your cream cheese is softened. Also, you can use low fat cream cheese and cottage cheese with this recipe. Replacing the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt is an option too.
  • The serving size noted in the recipe for 8. Honestly, you could probably serve smaller portions and serve more people. Especially, if you have smaller kids. It’s gooey, creamy and very rich. Go easy on your first serving. 🙂
  • Don’t get rid of the leftovers! This casserole is even better then next day!

Shake up your normal pasta routine with this delicious Million Dollar Spaghetti Casserole!  It’s amazing and will feed a crowd.

Great recipe. I added a little bit of onion, garlic and adobo powders and pepper to the cheese mixture. And a small can of mushrooms cause I love mushrooms. I don't care for sharp cheese. I thinly sliced half of a beef kielbasa sausage and layered it on top. Definitely rich and very filling. I'll make it for my coworkers and see what they think.

If I half this recipe, do I still double the sauce ?

If you are splitting the recipe, I would also cut back on the sauce. Enjoy!

What does 2-3 cups cooked spaghetti equal. Thank you

I give it four stars for a few reasons. First, I think people will prefer to add some meat or veggies into it, which I've done and it's a lot better. Another reason is that it needs more seasoning. Adding some onion and garlic powder to the mixed cheeses makes a world of difference. Another reason is it is way too much. This is A LOT of casserole. You can take it to an event and feed 15 people because it is so filling. That's how much it is. I suggest cutting the amount in half if you're a family of four, even five. Last reason and probably the most significant. It is way too cheesy. The cheeses blended together taste amazing, but it just needs more sauce. Like not a little bit, A LOT more sauce. I double the amount of sauce guys. Baking it in the oven already reduces the sauce. Then you have all these cheeses in there. More sauce, I promise! You do all of this and it's golden. I have made this recipe 3 times and figured all this out. It is my favorite way to eat spaghetti and great for picky eaters (as long as you leave out the veggies). I'm so glad I found this recipe and I hope my advice helps everyone to enjoy it!!
