Million Dollar Spaghetti recipe – tastes like a million bucks! Great freezer meal too! Spaghetti, meat sauce, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream and mozzarella. EVERYONE cleaned their plates and asked for seconds. Even our picky eaters!! This is definitely going into the rotation.
I see this recipe on pinterest all the time. One of my facebook friends made it and raved about it, so I finally gave it a try. It was really good and easy to make. It reminded me a lot of my Cream Cheese Spaghetti Casserole. One difference in the two spaghetti casseroles is this recipe had cream cheese and cottage cheese in it. I love cottage cheese baked into pasta dishes, so I knew this would be a hit at our house. This casserole can be assembled ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it. This would also make a great freezer meal! This makes a ton. We reheated it for lunch the next day, and it was equally delicious.
