Spaghetti Casserole


This Baked Spaghetti Casserole is SOOOO GOOD!  Seriously!   It might be my favorite baked spaghetti recipe on the blog.  This was recommended by my parents.  They ate it and just raved about it.  We had to give it a try!

This recipe makes enough for 6 people.  I was skeptical because this was made in an 8x8 pan, but it was enough for 6 servings.  We ate this for dinner and lunch the next day.  I froze the last two pieces and we ate them on another night.  It tasted great every time!



Spaghetti Casserole
(Printable Recipe)

7 oz spaghetti
1 egg
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (green can)
1 cup non-fat cottage cheese
1 lb sausage
2 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.

Cook spaghetti according to package directions.  Drain.  Toss spaghetti with egg and parmesan cheese.  Place in 8x8 pan.  Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti mixture.

Cook sausage, onion and garlic until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink.  Drain.  Add sausage back to skillet and stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and oregano.  Cook until thoroughly heated.  Spread over cottage cheese mixture.  Top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

  8. Jennifer - I just used regular breakfast sausage because that is what I had on hand. I think Italian Sausage would be delicious too!

  10. Do you think subbing Ricotta Cheese instead of cottage cheese would work? I just can't bring myself to even look at cottage cheese - silly, I know!

  11. Vicky - ricotta would be a great substitute for the cottage cheese.

  12. Sounds fabulous! My kids don't like baked spaghetti, tetrazzini, etc. I don't know what the hell is wrong with them ;)

  13. If I made this and froze it, how long and at what temp would you recommend I cook it to heat it?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Stacey - I would add about 10-15 minutes to the baking time and keep the temperature at 350.

  15. Make this tonight, Ladies! I made it Saturday for dinner and it will knock your socks off. I did make it with Johnsonville Italian Sausage and both tomato products had Italian herbs and I substituted dried Italian seasoning for the plain Oregano. It is wonderful and your family will love it. Thank you Steph for such a good recipe.

  16. Any way possible you could re post your cream cheese spaghetti casserole recipe?? Or email out to me.. mjgaines89@yahoo.com

  17. Tried this tonight and it was a big hit. A little spicey for me with the Italian sausage so will try half sausage and half lean ground beef next time but will definitely make again.

  18. Hi! This looks great...on the post it calls for a 14.5 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, but when I printed off the printable version it calls for a 14.5 oz. can of stewed tomatoes? Which one is it?? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Beth - I used stewed tomatoes but ended up crushing them in the food processor because I don't like chunks. So to answer your question - the photo has crushed tomatoes

  20. I made this tonight and it was delicious, even my hard to please hubby liked it, and even better my 2 year old picky eater gobbled it up! I used Purdue brand Hot Italian Turkey Sausage (casings removed), low fat ricotta (not a cottage cheese fan), and whole wheat spaghetti. This will go in our regular rotation for sure!

  21. I actually made something similar to this just the other day but instead of cottage cheese I used sour cream and no onion flakes just chopped onions. It was fantastic!! :)

  22. I've made this recipe twice lately and it is amazing! How do you think it would turn out if I put it in the crockpot for half a day, maybe 4 hours?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Stephanie, I already have spaghetti and sauce made and mixed together from last night. Do you think if I reheated it and mixed in the egg, cottage cheese, etc. that it would turn out ok? Thanks!
